WATCH: Pelosi says “we did win the war” in the House despite loss of several seats

Despite Democrats losing several seats in the House when they had hoped a blue wave would help them do just the opposite, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi insisted Friday “we did not win every battle in the House but we did win the war.”

The same day, Pelosi formally requested to be Speaker of the House again.

She has sent the following letter to re-elected colleagues.

Per The Week “Pelosi, the first and only woman to serve as House Speaker, sent a letter to her re-elected colleagues on Friday outlining the party’s agenda for its next two years in the majority. She promised to push for “lower health care costs, bigger paychecks, and cleaner government,” including by enacting a national coronavirus testing plan and voting rights legislation as soon as possible. And at the end, Pelosi formally requested support from congressmembers to be re-elected speaker for another term, with regard to all the “diverse viewpoints” she promised to “respect” along the way.
