Peninsula Congresswoman Jackie Speier is reportedly thinking about leaving Washington to become California's attorney general.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Speier is interested in returning to Sacramento where she spent nearly 20 years in the legislature.

A new poll of 450 likely Democrat and independent voters, show her with a 4-1 lead over her next closest competitor, San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris.

Reportedly, Speier does not much like Washington or her lack of seniority in the Congress.
