CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) – U.S. Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) announced Tuesday that she would no longer pursue the role of Speaker of the House.

She, instead, will devote her time toward voting rights with the support of Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-California).

By striking the accord, Pelosi is now positioned to become Speaker.

The announcement comes a day after Fudge drew criticism for her past support of disgraced ex-judge Lance Mason, who is now accused of killing his wife.
