Steve Israel will officially stay on as chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday.

"Under Chairman Israel's leadership of the DCCC, House Democrats won more than 200 races on Election Day, bringing to Congress the first 'majority-minority' Caucus in our history," Pelosi said in a statement. "I'm thrilled his tireless efforts will continue, as his tested experience will be crucial for House Democrats to continue breaking historical trends with a strong victory in 2014."

The statement noted that Israel remaining in the position was approved by the Democratic Caucus unanimously Thursday.

Israel continuing to helm the committee was expected: A few weeks ago, Pelosi told the Democratic caucus she would run for Democratic leader again if Israel was willing to stay on at the DCCC for another cycle, according to someone in the meeting.

The Democrats picked up a net gain of 8 House seats under Israel's leadership in the 2012 election.
