WASHINGTON (AP) – Despite widespread frustration among Democrats over the election result, House Democrats today have gone with the status-quo — re-electing Nancy Pelosi as minority leader.

There were 63 votes for Pelosi’s opponent, Ohio’s Tim Ryan — and that’s the largest number of defectors Pelosi has seen since she began leading House Democrats in 2002.

Democrats will remain in the minority in the House and Senate next year and won’t have the presidency as a bulwark against Republicans.
