Time: Pelosi May Retire

Friday, 29 Oct 2010 06:51 PM

Speaker Nancy Pelosi may retire if the Democrats lose control of the House in next week's midterm elections. Time magazine reports that political observers are predicting that Pelosi will end her political nancy,pelosi,retire,midterm,electionscareer rather than work under a Republican majority. If Pelosi doesn't retire, she will likely face stiff competition if she wants to be House minority leader.

Time also says Pelosi may be far from alone in leaving the House after Tuesday's elections, in which Republicans are expected to make huge gains. Between older Democrats who want to retire and other representatives who will lose power if Pelosi exits, the number of departures could top the 27 that the GOP lost after the 2006 elections.
