Pelosi becomes President of the American Congress for the fourth time
House Democrats gathered on Sunday to elect Congressman Nancy Pelosi, Calif., President of the 117th Congress, overcoming opposition from a handful of restless moderates calling on the new leadership to grant Pelosi her fourth term. at the top of the house.
The 216-209 vote was more dramatic than could have been imagined just two months ago, when Democrats went to the polls, expecting big gains in increasing their majority in the House of Representatives in 2021. Instead, they have lost at least 13 seats, shrinking their only 222 seats – the smallest majority in the House of Representatives in decades – and complicating Pelosi’s efforts to keep the speaker’s hammer for another two years.
He promised that it would be the last.
