WASHINGTON | Pelosi elected speaker, will lead Dems confronting Trump
WASHINGTON —Jan 03, 2019— Nancy Pelosi knew this moment would come, even if others had their doubts — or worked to stop her.
Pelosi was elected Thursday as House speaker, the only woman who has held the office and now one of few elected officials who have returned to it. The last time a speaker regained the gavel was more than a half-century ago.
The California Democrat has spent her political career being underestimated, only to prove the naysayers wrong.
