Nancy Pelosi Reelected As Leader of Democrats

Rep. Nancy Pelosi has been reelected as leader of the House Democrats, defeating a challenge by Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio. Pelosi was reelected 134 to 63.

Pelosi has led the Democrats since 2003, and was the first female Speaker of the House when the Democrats gained a majority in 2007. She has represented California in the House of Representatives since 1987.

Pelosi's reelection is kind of a surprise in light of the massive losses the party has endured during her time as leader.
