Good riddance, hopefully.
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, aged 83, is tight-lipped about her potential plans for running again in the future.
According to Newsmax, when CNN’s “State of the Union” host Dana Bash inquired about her intentions, Pelosi responded, “I’m not making any political plans here today, but I’m enjoying my service with the members, that our new members are wonderful, our leadership.”
Currently, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries from New York serves as the House minority leader, while Rep. Katherine Clark from Massachusetts holds the position of minority whip.
Pressed for a potential timeline on her decision to run again, Pelosi simply stated, “We’ll see, we’ll see.”
Since 1987, Pelosi has represented California’s 11th Congressional District. She held the position of House Speaker twice, first from 2007 to 2011, and then resumed the role in January 2019 before stepping down as the Democrat leader when House Republicans gained the majority.
When looking at things at face value, Pelosi doesn’t really have a choice when it comes to announcing her retirement. At the ripe old age of 83, how much longer does she realistically think she will remain in office?
