Pelosi announced her decision to step down as House speaker and continue to serve in the House in November after a consequential time in leadership, IJR reported.
During her time in Congress, NBC notes she has been “a central player in passing the most significant laws in recent history, from President Barack Obama’s signature health insurance measure and President Joe Biden’s climate change initiative to President George W. Bush’s Wall Street bailout and President Donald Trump’s COVID-19 rescue programs.”
Biden reportedly called Pelosi to ask her to stay in office for the next two years after the midterm elections.
“I hope you stick,” he reportedly told her, according to Politico.
When she pointed out she had personal considerations, Biden responded, “I know it’s family first, but I hope you stick.”
She has had some glowing words for Biden’s presidency.
During a discussion at the South by Southwest festival earlier this month, the California Democrat said, “He’s absolutely a magnificent leader.”
“He is younger than I am, so I don’t know what the problem is,” she added in an apparent reference to questions about Biden’s age.
She also appeared to support him running for re-election in 2024, saying, “I hope that he will soon make some announcement.”

And during a 2021 Democratic National Committee event, Pelosi said, “Our country could not be more — it could not be better served, than with … President Biden.”
“He’s just perfect! The timing couldn’t be better,” she added.
