(CNN)House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that a vote could still happen ahead of Election Day on a stimulus package to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic, but signaled that work remains to get an agreement, write legislation and put it on the floor before November 3.

An overall agreement is still not finished and it may not be reached in time for Election Day.
