WALLACE: "If Democrats win the House in November, will you run either to replace Nancy Pelosi if she steps down or against her if she doesn't?"
CROWLEY: "On the first portion of that I would wait and see just what happened in terms of Nancy Pelosi deciding not to run. But if Nancy Pelosi stays I don't see a scenario by which I would challenge her for that position."
WALLACE: "Do you want to be speaker?"
CROWLEY: "I'm focused right now on winning back the House of Representatives. To be in the majority, the chair of the democratic caucus in the majority in doing that job right now, I want to be the best chair of the democratic caucus like possibly can be. Help my colleagues get reelected and help when back seats for the house democratic caucus. That's my focus and goal. It's the focus and goal of the entire democratic leadership. We want to win back the house. If that's cool one and the only goal right now."
