Tim Ryan 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.
