US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s path to another term of leading the lower chamber got clearer Tuesday after a majority of House Democrats nominated her in a voice vote.
A full House floor vote for the speakership will take place in January, and Pelosi is poised to remain in the top leadership post for House Democrats.
Democrats on Tuesday also nominated House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (R-S.C.), a key ally of President-elect Joe Biden, for new terms, meaning leadership will likely look much the same as it has for the last two years.
Pelosi pledged in 2019 that she would only serve four more years as speaker, meaning the next Congress would be her last.
