WASHINGTON—House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is set to make a comeback as speaker next year after announcing Wednesday she would limit her tenure in the role to four years. Within moments of her saying the magic words “term limits,” seven of Pelosi’s previous critics sent out a statement promising to back her as speaker. Pelosi has to win a majority of votes for speaker when the new House convenes Jan. 3. She can afford to lose no more than 17 votes from her own party if all Republicans oppose her.
