Despite election losses that could cost the Democratic party more than a dozen seats, House Democrats selected Speaker Nancy Pelosi to run for a fourth term as Speaker of the House.

Pelosi will run for speaker in January when the House convenes. However, since the entire House votes for the speaker, Pelosi will not have very many votes to spare in order to win the approval of 218 members.

The Democrats also approved Pelosi to lead the party in the next Congress.
