Nancy Pelosi re-elected as US House speaker

Nancy Pelosi was narrowly re-elected Sunday as speaker, giving her the reins of Democrats’ slender House majority as U.S. president-elect Joe Biden sets a challenging course of producing legislation to tackle the pandemic, revive the economy and address other party priorities.

The California Democrat, who has led her party in the House since 2003 and is the only woman to be speaker, had been widely expected to retain her post.

Pelosi received 216 votes to 209 for Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., who again will be the chamber’s minority leader.
