Democrats in the House of Representatives on Tuesday re-elected Nancy Pelosi of California as the leader of their caucus despite a major election defeat two weeks ago that strengthened Republicans’ majority in the chamber. A Democratic leadership aide said, the election took place on a voice vote with no dissenters. They elected a new chairman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Representative Ben Ray Lujan of New Mexico, replacing Steve Israel of New York, who will move to a new policy and messaging role. Representatives Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut and Donna Edwards of Maryland were elected to serve as co-chairs of the party’s policy committee.
In a closed vote, the caucus chose the California representative 134 to 63 over challenger Tim Ryan of Ohio House Democrats have re-elected Nancy Pelosi as their leader. The California lawmaker, who has led the party since 2002, turned back a challenge from Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan on Wednesday.
Her win came despite disenchantment among some in the Democratic caucus over the party’s disappointing performance in the elections earlier this month. Democrats will remain in the minority in the House and Senate next year and won’t have the presidency as a bulwark against Republicans.
