WASHINGTON - Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she will try to keep her Democratic leadership post despite massive election losses that cost her party the House majority.

The nation's first female speaker became a strong ally of President Barack Obama on issues such as health care.

But dozens of Republican candidates attacked Democratic House members for their loyalty to Pelosi.

Many Democratic moderates and some liberals said it was time for new leadership.

Pelosi made the announcement in a statement Friday.

She said "our work is far from finished."
