House Democrat Vote Outcome


For John, BLUFI'm happy, but if I were a Democrat I wouldn't be.  Nothing to see here; just move along.




I picked a Progressive newspaper, The Guardian for a report on Ms Nancy Pelosi being re-elected House Minority Leader.  The Reporter is Ms Lauren Gambino, their Washington Correspondent.

Here is the lede plus one:

Nancy Pelosi has been re-elected as House minority leader on Wednesday, fending off an unexpected challenge from Ohio congressman Tim Ryan despite calls for new leadership following the Democrats’ crushing electoral defeat.

The party elected Pelosi, a progressive from San Francisco who has led her colleagues in the House since 2002, to another term in a closed-door vote on Wednesday. She earned 134 votes to Ryan’s 63.
