2024 Election

Nancy Pelosi, 83, confirms she is running AGAIN


Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced she will seek reelection in 2024, despite stepping down from her leadership position last Congress.

‘Now more than ever our City needs us to advance San Francisco values and further our recovery,’ Pelosi wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, Friday.

‘Our country needs America to show the world that our flag is still there, with liberty and justice for ALL. That is why I am running for reelection — and respectfully ask for your vote.’

San Francisco is enduring a major crime wave including smash-and-grab robberies and carjackings.

In August, the San Francisco Police Department said the city had nearly 1,670 car break-ins over 30 days, and there have been close to 10,000 thefts from vehicles in the city so far this year.

Signs can be seen throughout the city cautioning residents and tourists not to leave anything inside their cars, but the crime rate has stayed steadfastly elevated.

Pelosi, who was the first-ever woman speaker, was first elected to represent the people of San Francisco, California, in 1987.

It was not clear whether the former speaker would pursue reelection after her husband Paul Pelosi was attacked in their California home last fall.

A man entered their house saying he was looking for Pelosi, and then hit Paul over the head with a hammer. The incident was recorded on police body camera footage.

But Pelosi stated that the attack on her husband would not affect her decision about whether to run for reelection.

Last November, after Democrats lost the majority in the House, Pelosi made the choice to step down from her leadership role.

She passed the baton to now-House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries.

Her announcement for reelection comes as there is elevated concerns about the age of politicians in general.

83-year-old Pelosi is one of the longest-serving members of Congress.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, 81, suffered two bizarre ‘freezing’ episodes in recent weeks during public press conferences.

His latest episode has led to renewed calls for term limits in the House and Senate – even from those within the walls of Congress.

Rep. Dean Phillips, D-Minn., said term limits would help restore ‘human decency’ for elderly politicians like McConnell and Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, 90, who is also suffering public health scares.

GOP presidential hopeful Nikki Haley called the Senate the ‘most privileged nursing home in the country’ after McConnell’s recent episode.

‘What I will say is, right now, the Senate is the most privileged nursing home in the country,’ she said last week. ‘I mean, Mitch McConnell has done some great things and he deserves credit. But you have to know when to leave.’
