Is Nancy Pelosi retiring?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi caught reporters’ attention when she used the term “culmination,” sparking speculation over when her career will come to a close.

“I just told members of my leadership that the reconciliation bill was a culmination of my service in Congress because it was about the children,” Pelosi said at a press conference.

A reporter pointed out that the term usually signifies the end of an experience.

“Get out of here,” Pelosi said.

However, Pelosi’s made other opaque comments, seemingly hinting at a potential retirement.

“I sat up when Nancy Pelosi said the reconciliation bill was the ‘culmination’ of her congressional career,” said Susan Page, author of “Madam Speaker: Nancy Pelosi and the Lessons of Power.”

“Nearly everybody assumes this is her last term, but that was the first time I had heard her speak publicly in such a valedictory way,” Page said.

Pelosi was re-elected as speaker in 2018 in part by supporting a proposal to enact term limits for the chamber’s top three leadership roles. The proposal failed to gain approval, but Pelosi said that she would still abide by its terms, which would require her to step down as speaker by the end of 2022.
