Short bio: 

Nancy Pelosi is currently the Minority Leader of the US House of Representatives and served as the 60th Speaker of the United States House of Representatives from 2007 to 2011. She is the only woman to have served as the House Speaker and right now is the highest-ranking female politician in American history. Pelosi is a member of the Democratic Party, and represents California's 12th congressional district, which is four-fifths of the city and county of San Francisco. The district was numbered as the 5th during Pelosi's first three terms in the House, and as the 8th from 1993 to 2013.

Pelosi is the first woman, the first Californian and first Italian-American to lead a major party in Congress. After the Democrats took control of the House in 2007 and increased their majority in 2009, Pelosi was elected Speaker of the House for the 110th and 111th Congresses. On November 17, 2010, Pelosi was elected as the Democratic Leader by House Democrats which makes her the Minority Leader in the Republican-controlled House for the 112th Congress.

Pelosi is among the richest members of Congress,[126] with an estimated net worth of approximately $58 million, the 12th highest estimated net worth in Congress, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. She's been married to Paul Pelosi since 1963. They have five children: Nancy Corinne, Christine, Jacqueline, Paul, and Alexandra, as well as eight grandchildren.
