Already, rumors have swirled that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) could step down when Republicans likely retake control of the House in the upcoming midterm elections.
Pelosi’s new district, California’s 11th Congressional district, would be a highly coveted seat for Democrats who are interested in replacing her as it is a D+37 district, according to the Cook Political Report, making it one of the safest Congressional seats in the country for the Democrat who wins the nomination.
Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, Christine Pelosi, has already been floated as a viable option to replace Nancy.
Christine is a left-wing activist and Democratic political strategist who has served as the Women’s Caucus Chair of the California Democratic Party and as an Assistant District Attorney in San Francisco.
She would be the third generation of the Pelosi family to serve in Congress as Nancy Pelosi’s father, Thomas D’Alesandro Jr. also served from 1939 to 1947.
The Daily Mail Reports–
With rumors she plans to step down if a red wave hits Congress in Tuesday’s midterms, plans have already begun to succeed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in California’s 12th congressional district.
Pelosi, 82, who has served in Congress since 1987 and on two occasions as speaker, is currently helping her husband recover from a home invasion and attack last week while trying to help her party avoid devastating in Tuesday’s midterm elections.
One of the people who could be running for the seat is Pelosi’s daughter, Christine, a Democratic activist who has served as a proxy for her politician mother, if her seat were to open.
Multiple local politicians appear to be setting up for a potential run at her heavily left-leaning district in 2024, which President Joe Biden won in 2020 by over 70 points.
