House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., leaves the Capitol in Washington, Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2012. As former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has made a surge in the GOP presidential race, Pelosi asserted earlier this week that "Newt Gingrich will not be president of the United States," suggesting that she held information that could damage his chances at becoming the Republican nominee.
