Pelosi’s Retirement Plans Changing?
(UnitedVoice.com) – Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sailed to reelection on Tuesday, November 8. The Democratic congresswoman won the race for California’s 11th District with more than 80% of the vote. However, this might be the last time she’s celebrating a victory on an election night.
Just weeks before the midterm elections took place, an intruder brutally beat the speaker’s husband, Paul Pelosi. The 82-year-old suffered skull fractures and other injuries in the attack, carried out by a man who was allegedly looking for Nancy Pelosi. In an interview with CNN’s “Anderson 360” on Monday, November 7, Anderson Cooper asked whether the congresswoman would retire after this term if the Democratic Party loses the midterms.
After recounting the actions that followed the attack on her husband, Pelosi told Cooper that it would affect her decision.

In 2018, the speaker promised she would step down from her leadership role at the end of her current term. However, she hasn’t publicly announced any decisions about whether she plans to remain in Congress beyond 2024. Pundits expect her to reveal her decision in the coming weeks or months following the midterms.
After her term is up, do you think Pelosi intends to call it quits?
