House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is suggesting she will announce her plans on whether to run for another term as minority leader in a Democratic Caucus meeting scheduled for Wednesday morning.

“When I see my caucus, I will discuss it with them in the beginning of this week rather than discuss it with rumor in Washington,” Pelosi told reporters at a Veterans Day event Sunday in San Francisco.
