Democrats Nominate Pelosi as Speaker, Despite Pushback

Jordan Kirkland - November 28th, 2018

Late Wednesday, Democrats voted overwhelmingly to nominate Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to the Speakership in a 203-32 vote, putting to rest any rebellion to usurp the former speaker.

Despite pushback within the Democratic Party to elect a fresh face to the highest position in the House, Pelosi won with ease, running uncontested.

Leading up the the vote, a group of 20-or-so members of Congress openly objected to Pelosi's appointment in a letter last week, the caucus deciding the nomination took a paper ballot vote rather than the typical voice vote.
