CA-12: We might have a special election for Nancy seat in 2019
Nancy said this past week that she wants to be a "transitional speaker" in 2019 if we win the House, which suggests she would not hold the gavel very long. She's 78-years old and may be ready to enjoy her health, grandchildren and second house in NAPA (and frankly, I wouldn't blame her). If she DOES retire, and her daughter Christine doesn't run, every freaking politician, former politician and would=be politician in the city will jump and it will be a madhouse. Personally, I would like one of the following:

1. Mark Leno (former state senator)
2. Aaron Peskin (San Francisco Supervisor)
3. Jeff Adachi (San Francisco Public Defender)
4. Tom Ammiano (Former California Assemblyman)
5. David Chiu (California Assemblyman)
6. Carmen Chu (City Assessor)
7. Phil Ting (State Assembly)

Who would you like to see run?

Copy pasting from DU, interested in your take.

"Corporate Democrat" phrase created at the same place "Angry Mob" was...People keep falling for rightwing talking points. How sad.

I would like to see former State Senator/Former State Assemblymen/Former Supervisor Mark Leno. Mark is a solid Progressive. I worked on all three of Mark's Assembly Campaigns and two of his Senate Campaigns. He is a person who will work for the people who elect him...he should be in the Congress.

I have a question. Why would it be so bad for her to step aside now become a committee chairman and let somebody born after WW2 take over the reigns
