Speculations Rise About Pelosi’s Possible Retirement

Unfavorable prospects for House Democrats

Pelosi may remain undecided on whether or not to seek another congressional term; however, if Republicans do succeed in taking back the House of Representatives, Pelosi will face demotion from her current position of House Speaker.

At this point, just about anything is possible. Some Americans are speculating Pelosi might move to retire if the GOP ousts Democrats as the majority party in the House. Should the House of Representatives flip back to Republican control, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy would likely become the next speaker.

McCarthy and Pelosi have butted heads on numerous occasions. Pelosi once referred to McCarthy as “such a moron”; then, later, the top House Republican slammed Pelosi as a “lame duck speaker.”

Many House GOP members would love to see Pelosi exit stage left, however.
