Democrats have nominated Rep. Nancy Pelosi to be House speaker despite staunch opposition earlier this month. The representative from California ran unopposed for the speakership but still faces the full House in January, when she’ll need a majority of votes to reclaim the speakership. Pelosi had been campaigning behind the scenes for the post, but a small faction in the party pushed for someone else in the job. In the closed-door 32 Democrats voted against her and three declinedo vote.
