It’s about time, Nancy.
The octogenarian House Speaker wouldn’t commit to running for reelection in 2022 as her House majority dwindles and the far-left influence becomes more powerful.
Pelosi, 81, is currently in her 18th term and serving her second stint as speaker of the House. But Democrats hold a slim majority in the lower chamber and the Republicans are eager to win back control in 2022.
Leading CNN hack Jake Tapper asked Pelosi directly about her intentions to run for reelection 2022, to which she remained evasive and visibly uncomfortable.
“Why would I tell you that now?” Pelosi said after nervously giggling though Tapper’s question.
Pressed further, Pelosi said, “Well, probably I would have that conversation with my family first, if you don’t mind.”
"The very fact that she was playing games there with Jake Tapper tells you a lot," said @realJeffreyLord about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's hesitation when asked if she would run for reelection, on Monday's "National Report". pic.twitter.com/d8lneU69N8

It’s true: Nancy needs to consult with her husband about reelection so he knows which companies to invest in and make millions from.
She has served in Congress since 1987, and has been influential in her district, overseeing its utter downfall.
Pelosi represents part of San Francisco, a once-great city that has devolved into a smelly homeless hellhole with rampant crime and skyrocketing cost of living.
The career lawmaker must wrestle with the decision to hand the torch to a younger, more progressive Democrat as her party barely holds on to their majority in both houses of congress. Their grasp on the White House doesn’t look very promising either.
Rep. Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican serving as minority leader, is viewed as being the favorite to be voted speaker by the House if the GOP wins control of the lower chamber next year.
With some Democrats already announcing plans to retire , McCarthy recently predicted more will follow, and it improves the prospects for his party in the 2022 midterm elections.
Without Pelosi’s somewhat moderate influence, it’s imperative that Republicans capture a House majority if they want to stave off the growing radical influence amongst the cabal of socialist reps.
