Today, Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (WA-01) released the following statement on the historic career of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“For two decades, Nancy Pelosi has been the heart of the House Democratic Caucus and fearlessly led us through some of the most challenging moments in our nation’s history. I have watched in awe as she has stood up to enemies of democracy, both foreign and domestic.

“Her career is historic in so many ways, including rising to be the first woman elected Speaker of the House, but she will be most remembered for the difference she made. This Congress she united a narrow majority to pass some of the boldest investments in our country’s future in decades and just led us through a history-defying election. No one has accomplished more in their time with the gavel than Speaker Pelosi. Her legacy will be felt for generations to come in this country and abroad.

“As a fellow American, Democrat, woman, mother, and grandmother, I am incredibly grateful for her leadership and for leaving the Democratic Caucus in a strong position heading into the next Congress. I will honor her by continuing to fight for the children.”
