House Democrats on Wednesday voted to back Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to remain in her position for another two years, despite congressional setbacks suffered by Democrats during the November 3 election that gave the caucus one of the slimmest majorities in recent memory. She is widely expected to win.

Democrats on Wednesday elected Rep. Katherine Clark the assistant House Speaker for the 117th Congress, making the MA congresswoman the fourth-highest ranked member of the House of Representatives.

Pelosi's octogenarian leadership team will also continue in their roles.

No. 2 House Democratic leader Steny Hoyer and No. 3 party leader Jim Clyburn were reelected to their positions.
