House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reportedly plans to travel to Egypt Wednesday after the midterm elections, which could result in a red wave, according to Punchbowl News.

Pelosi is planning to attend the COP27 climate conference in Sharm El Sheikh, a luxury resort town in Egypt, Punchbowl reported. Democrats are expected to lose their majority in the House of Representatives Tuesday as Republicans potentially gain between 12 and 25 seats, according to a Cook Political Report (CPR) analysis.

Should Republicans take a House majority, Pelosi would no longer be speaker.

Four races with Democratic incumbents shifted from “likely D” to “toss up,” while another two races with Democratic incumbents moved from a “toss up” to “likely R,” according to the CPR analysis.

She announced her travel plans Tuesday during a lunch with donors, though her decision will depend on the health of her husband, Paul Pelosi, who is recovering from a recent attack, according to Punchbowl. He was attacked by a man with a hammer Oct. 28 after he allegedly forced his way into Pelosi’s house in search of the speaker.

Pelosi’s office declined to comment on the matter.
