Nancy Pelosi has secured re-election as House Speaker with the slimmest margin in 20 years.
She was widely expected to win a fourth term in the role but by a much narrower margin than in the past.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who did not vote earlier when her name was called, voted for Pelosi.
Democratic Reps. Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey, Abigail Spanberger of Virginia, and Elissa of Michigan each voted “present.”
Democrat Nancy Pelosi is set to be reelected as House speaker by her party, which retains the majority in the House but with the slimmest margin in 20 years.https://t.co/wHAyekZui2
