BREAKING VIDEO: Pelosi announces she’s running for re-election

Moments ago, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced she’s running for re-election.

Pelosi tweeted “While we have made progress much more needs to be done to improve people’s lives. This election is crucial: nothing less is at stake than our Democracy.”

“But we don’t agonize-we organize. I am running for re-election to Congress to deliver For The People and defend Democracy,” she added.

It’s unclear whether Pelosi will only run to continue being a lawmaker or will also hope to keep party leadership.

Prediction markets don’t give Pelosi a high % of keeping the Speaker role since they expect Republicans to win back the House.

If Democrats do manage to keep the House, she is slightly favored be speaker over Democrat Hakeem Jeffries.
