Dem Rep.-elect Hayes Flip-Flops on Support for Pelosi as House Speaker

Leader Nancy Pelosi celebrates the Democrats winning a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives in the

Hoyer, the current minority whip, is running to become majority leader in the new Congress. Clyburn, the current assistant Democratic leader, is running to become majority whip.

On top of that, nine Democrats in the bipartisan group called the Problem Solvers Caucus have vowed to oppose her unless she backs several rules reforms created to make it easier for rank-and-file members to advance bipartisan bills. But he added that voters in his district are clamoring for change in Washington, and he had promised during the campaign to fight to end gridlock.

The ongoing rebellion against Pelosi - of which another MA delegation member, Representative Seth Moulton, is a leader - has revealed frustration in the caucus about how long Pelosi, 78, and her top two deputies have held on to power.

Separately, nine Democrats in the Problem Solvers Caucus say they'll only support a speaker who agrees with rules changes to open the process for moving legislation. Democrats flipped 40 seats, more than enough to win control of the House.

Rep. Adam Schiff of California, who is set to chair the Intelligence Committee when Democrats take control next year, choked up with emotion, according an aide in the room granted anonymity to discuss the private meeting.

Nintendo sales topped $250 million from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday
Meanwhile, the 3DS, NES Classic, and SNES Classic continue to generate a steady stream of cash for Nintendo. Lifetime combined sales of Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon crossed 2.2 million.

She has been less tolerant of the dozen incumbents who signed a November 19 letter calling for new leadership, without a viable alternative to lead the party.

Meanwhile, Pelosi can shore up necessary support by having members vote "present", which would lower the threshold she needs to clear the majority.

Frustration with the Old Guard seems unlikely to dissipate even if Pelosi pulls off a return to House speaker. Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland is poised to become the majority leader, and Rep. Jim Clyburn of SC will be the party's whip.

But Hayes said she met with Pelosi in Washington last week.

During a campaign debate, Yoder repeatedly suggested that Davids would support Pelosi for House speaker should Democrats recapture the House majority. "We're committed to running the House differently while upholding our Democratic values".

GOP Senator Who Made ‘Hanging’ Remark Attended ‘Segregated’ Academy
Hyde-Smith said the "public hanging" comment was "an exaggerated expression of regard" for a fellow cattle rancher. Former Vice President Joe Biden has endorsed Espy, and three Democrats who could run for president in 2020 - Sens.

At the same time, a leader of the anti- Pelosi movement, Seth Moulton, said he wants to hold talks with Pelosi to discuss changes to the leadership team. She previously served as speaker of the House from 2007 to 2011.

Pelosi will face a floor vote on January 3, when she must get a majority of the whole House, 218 votes.

Pelosi, for her part, appeared jubilant at a news conference on Capitol Hill as votes for her leadership were being tallied today.

"Well, I think you heard and saw what took place", she replied.

House Democrats have elected Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of NY as their caucus chairman.

Ukrainian tugboat 'rammed' in Black Sea standoff with Russian coast guard
The incident began earlier on Sunday when the Ukrainian navy claimed a Russian coast guard vessel rammed a Ukrainian navy tugboat. In September, the Ukrainian navy accused Russian border guards of "acts of provocation" against its ships taking the same route.

After the secret ballot voting concluded, Pelosi said, "I'm proud to be the nominee of the House Democratic caucus once again for speaker of the House". "But I expect to have a powerful vote as we go forward". 'Has she negotiated and given them some of the things that they want? Yes. Pelosi became a face of the Affordable Care Act she helped pass through Congress, and in 2010 Democrats lost a historic number of seats in the House. Already she's been busy cajoling recalcitrant members on the record to opposing her - with some success.
