WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) today released the following statement on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's announcement she will step down from Democratic leadership.
"Nancy Pelosi is one of the strongest, toughest, most caring, effective, and focused women in the history of our country, who understands the importance of and knows how to bring a diverse group of people, perspectives, and ideas together to actually get work done. She always listens and understands, and even when disagreeing, you had to admire and respect her. Her legacy is one of tireless commitment to doing the hard work. Speaker Pelosi has made this nation better, improved the lives of an incalculable number of Americans, opened doors for the next generation, and set an example for our country - and the world - of strong American leadership.
