WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday said Republican Paul Ryan appears to be on a path toward becoming the next speaker of the bitterly divided chamber.

"We'll look forward to welcoming him (Ryan) if that all works out in the next few days. It looks like it will," Pelosi told reporters at her weekly press conference.
