House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will apparently run unopposed for another term as speaker after being nominated by House Democrats for the position on Wednesday.
If she wins the required 218 or majority of votes, Pelosi will face a much smaller majority than in her last term when Democrats took over the House from Republicans.
Republicans flipped at least eight seats in the chamber so far and are likely to flip a few more, although Democrats are still expected to have a slim majority.
Republicans could have more leverage in the new term if they can get a few moderate Democrats to vote with them rather than with Pelosi and the radical left.
“It’s a beautiful thing because you’re right, she’s [Pelosi] going to have such a slim margin, and I know that her members are very angry right now. They all felt that they were going to be protected; they were going to increase their numbers. It completely backfired,” newly elected Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-NM) said.
