Kind refuses to say if he voted for Pelosi as leader

Nancy Pelosi Hangs On To Remain House Democratic Leader

The Democratic caucus voted 134-63 in favor of Pelosi. In the end, she won 68 percent of the vote. He noted that this will serve as an onus on the party's economic agenda, also vowing that this will now move the Democratic party to appeal to voters right across the country.

Pelosi vowed on Wednesday to unify the Democrats in efforts to defend President Obama's legislative legacy from the incoming Trump administration, while proposing caucus reforms so as to empower younger Democratic lawmakers who have been frustrated by the lack of leadership opportunities.

Ryan's campaign to be House minority leader and his public critique of Pelosi has led to some turmoil within the Democratic Party. "We've done it in the past".

"I do not have confidence that there will be change", she said.

Pelosi had publicly predicted that she had support from two-thirds of the caucus, a threshold she surpassed in Wednesday's vote. His staff said he spent much of the Thanksgiving break making calls to his colleagues and they believed it would be a close race.

Red-to-blue was short-hand for Democrats' plan to take back the House this year.

"They have honored me with this leadership role as speaker in the past and that's exciting, but today has a special excitement for me because I think we're at a time that is well beyond politics", Pelosi said.

In addition to re-electing Pelosi, House Democrats also re-elected Congressman Steny Hoyer, D-Md., as Democratic Whip and Congressman Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., as Assistant Democratic Leader.

Pelosi rejected that premise during a press conference last week.

"We need the very best to lead us", Representative Adam B. Schiff of California told his fellow Democrats in nominating Pelosi.

Among Pelosi's supporters were Reps. "We've done it in the past, and we will do it again", she said. "We need our leader to be seasoned, tough". "No one is a better tactician than Nancy Pelosi".

Ryan told reporters that Democrats came out of the election united.

"We got the message out that we wanted to get out, and that's that as Democrats, we need to talk about economics".

"I did it because I thought we needed a season of introspection", he said. "Under Nancy Pelosi's leadership, House Democrats have become completely irrelevant". The election results showed a party that is buoyed by support from coastal states and failed to appeal to the working class voters who were once central to its winning coalition. Those seats, both held by Republicans who left the position to run for U.S. Senate, are in Louisiana and will be decided in a December 10 runoff election. After her party's devastating 63 seat loss in the ensuing 2010 election, Pelosi miraculously maintained her spot as Democratic leader, which, predictably, led to the largest Republican majority since the 1920s.

Other top leadership posts are uncontested, with Steny Hoyer of Maryland in the No. 2 job of whip, and Jim Clyburn of SC in the No. 3 position of assistant leader. It was a testament to her vote-counting skills and to her ability to hang onto power even in dark days for Democrats, as they confront a capital that will be fully controlled by the GOP next year.

"It is obvious that the current strategy doesn't work; millions of Americans don't feel that our party represents them anymore and they've said so, loudly, in multiple elections", Arizona Representative Kyrsten Sinema tweeted.
