Whether she likes it or not, the race to replace Nancy Pelosi is on in the House of Representatives.
Pelosi herself has said she’ll run in 2022, but many observers suspect that her announcement to that effect was simply a ruse to stave off the “lame-duck” label. At 82, it’s not clear that Pelosi is capable of beating off a challenge from younger Democrats.
