These people cannot give up their power.
Between Biden, McConnell, Fetterman and now Pelosi.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is 83 years old and the former Speaker of the House has announced she is going to run for re-election.
The congresswoman has been in office representing San Francisco since 1987 and is the sixth oldest member of the House.
“Now more than ever our City needs us to advance San Francisco values and further our recovery,” Pelosi posted on X. “Our country needs America to show the world that our flag is still there, with liberty and justice for ALL. That is why I am running for reelection — and respectfully ask for your vote.”

The news that she will run for re-election come as Americans have expressed concern over the amount of aging lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
For example, the health of California Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein has also been called into question.
In August 2023, the Senator who seems to be confused at times during proceedings fell.
“Senator Feinstein briefly went to the hospital yesterday afternoon as a precaution after a minor fall in her home. All of her scans were clear and she returned home,” a Feinstein spokesperson told NBC News in an email Wednesday.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has had two freezing episodes on camera and said he will remain in office until his term is over. Now, McConnell may be staying in office because the Democrat Kentucky Governor did not commit to appointing a Republican Senator should McConnell step down.
