New Members Could Spell Trouble for Pelosi's Speaker Bid


Nancy Pelosi hopes to regain her role as speaker when the 116th Congress commences in January, yet her path to the top House job — which is third in line of succession to the presidency — will be met with some opposition. Many of the new members joining the Democratic majority have indicated they could be looking for a new leader.

Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio, who challenged Pelosi in the caucus vote for minority leader in 2017, has already told that he has "no intention" of challenging her this time.
