Last week, two people announced they were leaving Pelosi’s office, which fueled talk of Pelosi’s possible retirement.
Now we are seeing reports that indicate she is running again.
It’s a free country and Pelosi can run again of she wants to, but what about her age? The woman is over 80 years old. At what point is she going to retire? When she’s 90?
Breitbart News reports:
CNN: Nancy Pelosi Will Run for Reelection
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will run for reelection, hoping to extend her time in the House past the midterms next year, according to a report from CNN.
Pelosi is planning to file for reelection in the San Francisco-based district next year, CNN reported. However, Pelosi still has months before the filing deadline in California for House races, as the state’s filing deadline is March 11 for the primary set on June 7.
If Pelosi wins another term in the House, she will more than likely find herself in the minority after the midterms, as the House Republicans have the advantage going into the election and winning the majority, while the Democrats under Pelosi have continued to pass partisan agenda items.
CNN reported that a source familiar with Pelosi said, “She isn’t ruling out the possibility of trying to stay in leadership after 2022.” The report comes years after Pelosi put “an end date on her tenure as the top House Democratic leader” to secure the votes needed to be elected as House speaker in 2018.
Additionally, Pelosi’s favorability rating across the country is not in the speaker’s favor.
It’s amazing that she is even considering this.
Politicians like Nancy Pelosi ( who’s 81 years old) are the strongest argument for TERM LIMITS there can be. No sane government would keep allowing a person to keep gaming the system by running for office over and over again. It’s all just a cash grab for her.

At 82 years old, Nancy Pelosi will be running for yet another term in Congress.
I’m going to make sure that she hands that gavel over to a Republican next year!

It’s way past time for her to retire.
