Pelosi Narrowly Reelected to Another Term as Speaker of the House

80-year-old Nancy Pelosi was narrowly reelected to another term as Speaker of House on Sunday.

Pelosi won 216 votes barely securing the speakership.

5 Democrats defected and either didn’t vote for Pelosi or voted present.

“As we go into session today, I do so full of pride to be nominated by our Democratic Caucus to be Speaker of the House,” Pelosi said in a letter on Sunday.

“I am enormously grateful for the trust that Members have placed in me. I am confident that the Speaker’s election today will show a united Democratic Caucus ready to meet the challenges ahead, and that we are prepared to set our country on a new course, starting with the Electoral College meeting on Wednesday.”

GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasted Pelosi and the Democrats in his speech to the chamber then handed the gavel to Pelosi.

Power-hungry Pelosi proudly raised her gavel as Democrats cheered.
