It’s over.

Nancy Pelosi and her senior leadership team all announced on Thursday that they would NOT seek Democrat leadership posts in the new Congress. Pelosi’s move comes one day after outlets declared that the GOP would in fact take control in the U.S. House of Representatives for the first time since January 2019.
