Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Friday that is is seeking reelection to the House in 2024, and that she will be part of a Democrat all-hands-on-deck push to regain the majority, now held by Republican.
Pelosi, 83, made the surprise announcement in San Francisco, which she has served for decades. She also posted on X/Twitter her intentions to run.
“Now more than ever our City needs us to advance San Francisco values and further our recovery. 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.”
Pelosi was born March 26, 1940, and will turn 84 during next year’s campaign cycle. If she succeeds in winning another term, she will be nearly 87 at the end of that term.
