Rep. Frankel Statement on Speaker Pelosi’s Decision to Step Away from Leadership

Washington, DC – Today, Democratic Women’s Caucus (DWC) Co-Chair Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-21) released the following statement after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced her decision to pass the torch to a new generation of House leaders, while remaining in Congress.

“Throughout her four-decade career in public service, and nearly eight years as Speaker of the House, Speaker Pelosi has left a remarkable impact on Congress and our country,” said Rep. Frankel. “From breaking the marble ceiling by becoming the first woman to hold the Speaker’s office, to expertly navigating narrow majorities to pass some of the most critical pieces of legislation in our nation’s history, her legacy as a leader and trailblazer is unparalleled. I want to thank her deeply for her determination, courage, and dedication to fighting for women and our country, and I look forward to continuing to work with her as a valued member of the Democratic Women’s Caucus.”
