Nancy Pelosi keeps her job as minority leader in the House


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) won another term as leader of the House Democratic Caucus, POLITICO reports.

The veteran Democratic politiccian bested a challenge from Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) Wednesday. The vote was 134-63 -- a big margin of victory that Democratic leaders hope will silence some of the unrest in the party after its huge loss in the November election.

Pelosi reacted to the vote with her characteristic lean-forward style.

Ryan praised Pelosi’s leadership but still called for "accountability" after a series of losing election cycles.

"Everything we do should be about getting back in the majority,” Ryan said. He added he "bit his tongue" after the past three losing election cycles.

The Ohio representative says Democrats need to better address the needs of blue-collar voters.

Ryan made fun of his CNN interview where he got REALLY sweaty.
