MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said that he’s hearing a rumor that when House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) retires she will hand over leadership of the House Democratic Caucus to Rep. Joe Kennedy III (D-MA).

Matthews made the comment during an interview with Politico’s “Off Message,” which was released on Tuesday.

“Somebody hit me with the rumor last night that Nancy Pelosi is going to turn it over to Joey the third,” Matthews said.

Matthews then asked Politico‘s Edward-Isaac Dovere whether he has heard that rumor.

Dovere told Matthews that he has heard a lot of Democrats in the House talk about Kennedy as speaker.

“She was very proud to point out that it was her idea completely to make him the one that did the State of the Union response,” Dovere said. “She really wanted that known.”
