Nancy Pelosi, who is now 81 years old, has announced that she will run for reelection in 2022.
Is there no one else in her district who can do this job?
It’s important to remember that if Pelosi worked in the private sector, she would have been forced into retirement years ago.
The Hill reports:
Pelosi says she will run for reelection in 2022
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced on Tuesday that she will run for reelection in 2022, quelling speculation for now that this year may be her last in Congress.
Pelosi, who was first elected to the House in a 1987 special election, said the U.S. democracy is “at risk,” which makes the upcoming election “crucial.”
“While we’ve made progress, much more needs to be done to improve people’s lives. Our democracy is at risk because of assaults on the truth, the assault on the U.S. Capitol and the state-by-state assault on voting rights. This election is crucial. Nothing less is at stake than our democracy,” Pelosi said in an announcement video posted to Twitter
“But, as we say, we don’t agonize; we organize. And that is why I am running for reelection to Congress and respectfully seek your support. I would be greatly honored by it and grateful for it,” she added.

Pelosi’s announcement that she will run for reelection comes despite her previous pledge in 2018 that this term would be her last as Speaker after leading House Democrats for the last 19 years.
When exactly is she planning to retire?
Of course Nancy Pelosi is running again. She's only 81, that's like 20 in vampire years.
