Pelosi, first woman speaker, to depart Dem leadership in seismic shift

Since she reclaimed the gavel in 2018, the first woman speaker had planned to step down from leadership after this term. However, she has said her decision was made more complicated by the brutal assault of her husband last month. Then, the Democrats’ better-than-expected midterm election prompted calls for her to stay, including from President Joe Biden and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Pelosi’s announcement paves the way for current caucus chair Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), to succeed her after months of steadily building support.
