Nancy Pelosi Wants to Quit Congress, Says Daughter

Thursday, 29 Dec 2011 11:27 AM

Alexandra Pelosi, daughter of House Minority Leader and former Speaker Nancy Pelosi, says her mother is is "done" with politics and considers her tenure in the House "an obligation" to donors.

During a telephone interview with the website Big Government,  Alexandra Pelosi said:

"She would retire right now, if the donors she has didn’t want her to stay so badly. They know she wants to leave, though. They think she’s destined for the wilderness. She has very few days left. She’s 71, she wants to have a life, she’s done. It’s obligation, that’s all I’m saying."

Nancy Pelosi has had a rocky relationship with Republicans since they took control of the House in 2010, and she doggedly pushed to serve as Minority Leader. A number of Democrats -- including the president -- are campaigning with the idea that she will become speaker again if they can reclaim the House in 2012.

Alexandra Pelosi, 41, is a television producer and documentarian. She won Emmy Awards for her work on 2002's Journeys with George, an HBO documentary on George W. Bush’s 2000 presidential campaign.

Nancy Pelosi’s departure could boost her deputy, Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), the current Minority Whip, who is considered more moderate than Pelosi.
