Watch: Speaker Nancy Pelosi announces future plans

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is poised to announce Thursday what her future will look like, a day after Republicans claimed a majority in the House in the next congressional term.

Her decision to either seek another term as the Democratic leader or to step aside has been widely anticipated. It comes after her party was able to halt an expected Republican wave in the House and Senate in midterm elections, but also in the aftermath of a brutal attack on her husband, Paul, last month in their San Francisco home.

“The Speaker plans to address her future plans tomorrow to her colleagues. Stay tuned,” Pelosi's spokesperson Drew Hammill tweeted late Wednesday.

The speaker “has been overwhelmed by calls from colleagues, friends and supporters,” Hammill said, and noted that she had spent Wednesday evening monitoring election returns in the final states where ballots were still being counted.
