Pelosi Laughs Off Question About Running In 2022

The Hill reports:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday laughed off a question about whether she would run for reelection in 2022, saying she would consult with her family before making her decision public.

Pelosi appeared surprised when CNN’s “State of the Union” host Jake Tapper asked about whether she would run again for her congressional seat, which she has held since 1987.

“I do want to ask about your own future in Congress. Are you going to run for reelection?” Tapper asked. “Why would I tell you that now?” Pelosi responded. “Probably, I would have that conversation with my family first, if you don’t mind.”
