“Our nation has been through a turbulent four years where we had to fight to protect the rights of people across the country. Nancy Pelosi was at the forefront of that fight, advocating for people with pre-existing conditions, victims of systemic racism, the LGBTQ+ community, immigrants, families, and so many more,” Sires said in a statement.

“She held firm against President Trump and put important legislation before the House to help those who need it most. As we look towards the 117th Congress, and a Biden Harris administration, I strongly believe that Nancy Pelosi is the right choice for Speaker and I look forward to working with her to rebuild our infrastructure, ensure comprehensive health care coverage, and address the student debt crisis.”

Pelosi was one of the first to declare the presidential race for Biden, congratulating him during a news conference yesterday.

The Democrats will retain the majority in the lower chamber, so regardless of what happens with President Donald Trump’s legal challenges in key swing states, it seems likely that Pelosi will receive a third term as House speaker.
