Exit question: When does Nancy announce that she’s riding off into the sunset too? Having her retire in despair of recapturing the House before the midterms would be a crushing blow to Democratic morale. I’m thinking she’ll lie low, win reelection, and then step down during the lame-duck session. Tick tock.
She won her San Francisco district in 2012 with 85% of the vote. She’s not going anywhere unless she wants to. And being the Minority Leader of the House beats the hell out of being a retired lady who lunches in San Francisco.
