Pelosi Confident She’ll Be Speaker Despite Effort To Derail Her Bid

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., expressed confidence she would be elected speaker of the House after Democrats won control of the chamber in the midterm elections on Tuesday.

A group of roughly 10 House Democrats is organizing an effort to oppose Pelosi as the next speaker of the House, but they admit they don’t have an alternate candidate yet.
