House Dems ponder retirement, leaving Pelosi’s majority vulnerable

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was already facing a monumental challenge to hold her embarrassingly thin majority in the House in the 2022 midterms. Now, multiple Democrats are promising to retire before 2022, with perhaps the most high profile being former Florida governor Charlie Crist. 

According to Breitbart, adding to her mounting obstacles is the new threat of a number of House Democrats either announcing or pondering the idea of retiring or exiting from the lower chamber before the next election, with some of them leaving open districts that Republicans will likely add to their potential target list.

Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL), described as one of Pelosi’s most loyal lieutenants, announced last week that she has no plans of seeking reelection in 2022. Her exit will leave open a vulnerable seat which she only managed to barely win in 2020, as the district she represents heavily favors former President Donald Trump.

Additionally, thanks to residents of Illinois fleeing the state in droves like those fleeing from California and other heavily blue states, Illinois managed to lose a congressional seat after the 2020 census data was released, which makes matters even worse for House Democrats.

Marking another blow to the ranks of House Democrats was the Tuesday announcement from Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL), who confirmed that he’ll be challenging Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) for the governor’s mansion next year. Interestingly, Crist once served as governor of Florida as a Republican, before he switched parties.

A pair of Pennsylvania Democrats, Reps. Conor Lamb and Chrissy Houlahan, have also hinted at the strong possibility of making a run for a vacant Senate seat after Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) retires. That’s another situation where Pelosi will be vulnerable, as the empty seats could be viable targets for Republicans looking to flip as many seats from blue to red as possible.

You might also remember Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), the failed 2020 presidential candidate. Ryan recently launched a campaign bid to win a seat that will soon be vacated by Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), meaning yet another House Democrat moving on.

There’s not enough space to go over the numerous remaining House Democrats who are either considering retirement or attempting to run for different offices.

But the bottom line is that Pelosi has a major problem — one that she likely won’t be able to overcome — and there’s still plenty of time for more retirement announcements between now and November 2022.

  2. And Headboard Harris knows this warming at the border is a problem causing illegal aliens to flee North. How so? Did she visit the border and not make it known to the left wing media? I think not!

  3. I am okay with her leaving office for a prison cell. The lush would not last a year in jail. Ever seen the DTs? It ain’t pretty and that is what I am hoping for Pelosi.

  4. Too bad Nancy was not standing in front of Ashli Babbitt when the Capital Cop pulled the trigger.

  5. There IS hope that evil will be overcome in the 2022 election before the dems completely destroy our wonderful country.

  6. We still have to vote to get the GOP back to its leadership role. We cannot relax thinking that we’ve got anything guaranteed. The cheaters are still going to be out there. Just look at that gloating Stacey Abrams. UGH!

  7. Looks like Nanci’s ship has sprung some leaks. These retirees will drop the dead weight anchor stigma of Pelosi leaving her all the kegs of grog. Now watch the navigator run aground. Straw or no straw.

    Start making money this time… Spend more time with your family & relatives by doing jobs that only require you to have a computer and an internet access and you can have that at your home. Start bringing up to $65000 to $70000 a month. I’ve started this job and earn a handsome income and now I am exchanging it with you, so you can do it too.

        1. Hey, she needs to LIVE and cognoscente of what she created in government – when it is upset dramatically. It will give her the feeling that we have been going through all the time she has been speaker – – TOTALLY deflated knowing NO way that she can’t change the path ahead. LET HER STEW seeing that the PEOPLE will get rid of all the “policies” she invented!!! Let her watch what happens when the REAL Patriots take back the country!!!

    1. only way she will leave is feet first. she is there to stay, period. she will wreak more havoc before she calls it a day.

    2. Don’t hold your breath. She’ll be leaving feet first. To bad the boy’s of January 6th didn’t find her. They could have made that happen.

      1. David – that is a stupid concept – only giving the extreme liberals something to harp on…

    3. She’s been sited for EX-COMMUNICATED from the CATHOLIC CHURCH ! She is a HERETIC and a LIAR ! AND IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MILLIONS OF DEAD BABIES THROUGH HE STANCE ON ABORTION!

      1. and, DS, I agree is the WORST thing someone can be responsible for…and yes, I put my mouth where my heart and ideals are. I adopted TWI babies that were set to be aborted. AWESOME adults now. I would have adopted MORE but was told that there are too many families that want to adopt and not enough kids…they “limit” families – to only two…

    4. Not enough. Perhaps turn up the heat will help them out. Make them all retire in cuomo’s death camp
