More bad news for America, which seems to just be commonplace these days. Every time Democrats open their mouths, everyone in the country just cringes. And today was no different when Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, announced on Tuesday that she would be seeking reelection to Congress during the midterm election in 2022.
She made the announcement in a video that she posted on Twitter that she is seeking reelection because she feels that her party and Democracy are “at risk.” She apparently feels this way because of the Capitol riot that occurred on Jan 6 of 2020, and because GOP states are passing legislation to shore up election integrity.
Pelosi said the following, “While we have 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. But as we say: we don’t agonize, we organize. And that is why I’m running for reelection to Congress and respectfully seek your support. I’d be greatly honored by it and grateful for it.”
Pelosi, who is already 81 years old as of right now, didn’t say whether or not she would be running for reelection as Speaker of the House. She made a pledge back in 2018 that she wouldn’t be seeking this position after the 117th Congress. In 2020, she also reaffirmed this pledge to step down as House leader after her current term concluded.
CNN reported just last month, however, that she hasn’t taken this off the table. Lucky us…
Jake Tapper pushed Pelosi on this question back in October, but she refused to budge or admit what her plans would be.
Pelosi made this announcement as Jim Cooper, a Democrat Rep. from Tennessee made the announcement that he wasn’t seeking Congressional reelection this November. This brings the already-thin Democrat majority to a razor-thin majority. It’s expected that Republicans will take back the House this year after Biden’s disastrous first year of Presidency and chaotic state of the nation.
