House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) gave a strange answer when asked what her top priority would be if she became Speaker of the House in 2018, possibly suggesting that if Democrats retake the House, she would finally resign from Congress.

The Washington Post‘s Karen Tumulty asked Pelosi what her top priority would be as Speaker if Democrats were successful in retaking the House of Representatives in 2018.

“Well, first of all, it’s not about me getting the gavel back. I just want the Democrats to have the gavel back,” Pelosi responded. “It’s not about me.

Pelosi then answered Tumulty questions by talking about what she expects the Democratic Party to do if it retakes the House of Representatives in 2018, citing “The Better Deal.”

Pelosi has previously said that had Hillary Clinton won the presidential election in 2016, she would have resigned from Congress. But after Donald Trump won the election, Pelosi saw it as her duty to stay in Congress to protect the Democratic legacy under President Obama.

Pelosi’s answer to Tumulty’s question might suggest that Pelosi is considering retiring from Congress if Democrats retake the House in 2018.
