Diana DeGette, Colorado’s most senior congressperson, got to walk the article of impeachment of Donald Trump over to the Senate with her fellow impeachment managers, which included one of the newest members of the delegation, Joe Neguse.

DeGette’s appointment by her friend and mentor, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, is a highlight of her career, which began in 1997. If Pelosi retires, does DeGette follow? If the Democrats lose the House in 2022, does that bring conclusion?
