"An ally of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Speier ascended to Congress in 2008, replacing late Rep. Tom Lantos (D-Calif.), who died in office earlier that year.
California is losing a seat in redistricting for the first time since the state's founding, but Speier's deep-blue district on the San Francisco Peninsula is unlikely to be greatly affected.
Several other longtime members of the delegation are also on retirement watch as the state's redistricting commission moves closer toward finalizing a new map, including Democratic Reps. Grace Napolitano and Lucille Roybal-Allard. Democratic Rep. Karen Bass, meanwhile, is already vacating her seat to run for mayor of Los Angeles."
She would certainly have been reelected had she run but she knows very well that, because of the disaster that has been the term of "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap," she'd be in the minority for the next decade, no doubt dealing with impeachment hearings for the flatulent fool, resisting, during the next two years, radical GOP legislation.
020 is shaping up to be the most amazing GOP congressional victory in history.
