Democrat Nancy Pelosi has a lot of firsts to her credit including being the first woman to become Speaker of the House. She announced on social media that she would stand for reelection in the U.S. in 2024. The 83-year-old dynamo is not the only older person to stand for reelection but has reignited the ageism debate among web fans, some of whom believe that experience matters while others think that there should be a cut off age for Congress.
Nancy Pelosi posted on X, formerly called Twitter that there was a need for America to show that the nation still stood for “liberty and justice for ALL” and that was the reason why she would be “running for reelection” and she “respectfully” asked San Franciscans for their vote.
Many outlets said that Pelosi had spoken to top advisers as well as to activists at breakfast, on Friday before she posted on social media.
Nancy Pelosi’s husband was attacked at his home in October. The attacker wielded a hammer and injured Paul Pelosi. He said that he was looking for Nancy Pelosi. At that time, she said that the horrifying incident would affect her decision— whether she would retire or whether she would run again.
After losing the House Speaker post, Nancy Pelosi said that she would not seek another term as a Democratic leader and reportedly has been comfortable as a member of the House, without a leadership role. However, she is a huge crowd puller as well as is one of the best if not the best fundraisers for the Democrats.
Nancy Pelosi was first elected to San Francisco district in 1987. She served as the House Speaker for two terms—from 2007-2011 and from 2019-2023 and stepped down after the House got a Republican majority in the 2022 midterms and Republican Kevin McCarthy became the House Speaker. This stepping down from a leadership role had fueled rumors that she would retire.
