Pelosi decides to run again for House leader post
WASHINGTON (AP) — Former House speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday she will run to keep her job as the Democratic leader in the House after a pair of elections that kept the party in the minority there even as Democrats gained seats in the Senate and a second term for President Barack Obama.
As in the House, the Senate retains its top leaders: Nevada Democrat Harry Reid and Kentucky Republican Mitch McConnell. Republicans elected Texas Sen. John Cornyn to be the vote-wrangling whip, South Dakota Sen. John Thune as GOP conference chairman, Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso as policy committee chairman and Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran to chair the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the party's campaign arm.
