The Democratic legislator Nancy Pelosi83 years old and former president of the US House of Representatives, announced this Friday that In 2024 he will run for re-election to try to keep his seat in San Francisco.
“Now more than ever our city needs us to promote the values of San Francisco and our recovery. Our country needs us USA show the world that our flag is still there, with freedom and justice for ALL. That’s why I’m running for re-election and respectfully ask for your vote,” he wrote on X (formerly Twitter).
The first and only woman to preside over the House of Representatives in the history of the United States stopped leading that chamber after the Democrats lost their majority in the November 2022 midterm elections.
When that same month she announced her intention not to seek the leadership of the Democratic opposition caucus, Pelosi did make it clear that she was going to keep her seat representing District 12 of San Francisco, which she will try to keep in 2024.
Her decision to retire from the political front was influenced by the attack her husband suffered at the end of October at the family home in San Francisco by a man who was looking for her.
