(CNN)Marcia Fudge, the Democratic congresswoman from Ohio who may be launching a bid against Nancy Pelosi for speaker of the House, told CNN on Thursday that she is undecided about her bid, but seems bolstered by the outreach she’s receiving.
“I have not made a decision, I’m still thinking about it,” she said outside of her office on Capitol Hill. “It’s a big decision. I mean, the speaker does an awful lot of things, the travel, the fundraising,” and Fudge wants to make sure she’s making the right decision. When might she decide? Probably not by Friday but “soon.”
Fudge says she’s heard from more than 20 or 30 of her colleagues encouraging her to run. On Thursday, a list of 17 members of Congress indicated that they would not support Pelosi for speaker.
