Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to say if she will serve out her full term in Congress, not in leadership, during a Thursday press conference.

A reporter asked Pelosi if she would commit to serving her full two-year term for the people of San Francisco, to which she responded by dodging the question: “What is this? Don’t bother me with a question like that. Really. Really, OK? I said what I’m going to do. Those kind of questions are such a waste of my time.” (RELATED: Nancy Pelosi Asks Her Daughter If She’s ‘A B*tch’ In New Documentary)


Pelosi announced she would run for reelection in January. In November, she announced she would not seek reelection as Democratic House leader. (RELATED: Top House Democrats Decline To Say If They Would Support Pelosi As Leader After She Announces Reelection)

In late November, Pelosi sent a letter to donors and grassroots supporters saying House Democrats are poised to maintain a majority in 2022 and are preparing for victory despite a number of retirements within the party and bad polling for Democrats. However, the GOP ended up taking back the House.

Pelosi has led House Democrats since 2003 and has held her role as speaker since January 2019.
