Are you glad to see Nancy Pelosi go?

Following the GOP takeover of the House, the 82-year-old soon-to-be former House speaker made the announcement to her colleagues from the congressional floor Thursday.

“With great confidence in our caucus, I will not seek re-election to Democratic leadership in the next Congress,” Pelosi said.

“For me, the hour has come for a new generation to lead the Democratic caucus that I so deeply respect,” she added.

Pelosi did not say who should replace her as House minority leader, but national radio host Todd Starnes said he thinks it will be progressive “Squad” member, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

“My money is on AOC. The Democrat Party will get radicalized quickly,” Starnes said.
