BREAKING:Nancy Pelosi re-elected US House speaker

The Current US Congress Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, the highest-ranking woman in the history of US politics, was narrowly re-elected Sunday as House speaker in a deeply divided new Congress that convened in the final weeks of Donald Trump’s presidency.

Pelosi, an 80-year-old lawmaker from California, faced a scare when a handful of fellow Democrats defected and voted “present” during the floor vote.

But the woman who has led the Democratic caucus for several years secured her fourth non-consecutive term as House speaker with a vote of 216 for her against 209 for the Republican leader Kevin McCarthy.
