Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has announced her intention to seek re-election in the 2022 midterms.
The 81-year-old's announcement, which she made Tuesday on Twitter, follows an earlier statement in which she said her current term would be her last. Pelosi says she changed her mind because she has unfinished business to attend to. "While we have made progress, much more needs to be done to improve people’s lives," she says. "This election is crucial: nothing less is at stake than our democracy."
Pelosi will celebrate her birthday in March, meaning she'll be 82 years old when she runs for re-election.
