A full vote in the House on the speech will take place in January and Pelosi is ready to remain in the top leadership for the House Democrats.
Pelosi did not say whether the next Congress will be her last term as a speaker in her speech in the Caucasus during the leadership elections, according to a source who heard her comments. She promised in 2019 that she would serve only four more years as a speaker, which means that the next conference will be her last.
The top Democrats had predicted with confidence that they would expand their majority only to see a number of incumbents ousted by Republicans, who are now armored and attacked, even though they are still in the minority.
These democratic losses have provoked intense clashes between moderates and progressives with the two factions of the party pointing fingers and blaming. This rift, and a smaller majority, could pose new challenges for Pelosi as he leads the House Democrats at the next congress.
Pelosi remained provocative even after the defeats, telling reporters last week, “I think I won the majority and keeping the House.”
The House Democrats also backed Pelosi’s top lawmakers to remain in office, with Maryland House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer being elected to run for office and South Carolina Representative James Clyburn re-elected House Majority Whip. maintaining the third line leadership position.
The House Democratic Leadership will remain largely unchanged at the forthcoming Congress, with Pelosi, Hoyer and Clyburn retaining the top positions.
The top-ranking racing leadership is for assistant speaker, and another key election to attend will be for Democratic congressional campaign committee chairman when Congress returns after Thanksgiving.
Speaker match assistant
Representative Katherine Clark, who is currently serving as vice president of the Democratic Caucasus, is vying for the position of assistant speaker against Rhode Island’s David Cicilline, and the race will be the first leadership contest. The fourth highest-ranking position in the House, the assistant speaker position was created by Pelosi to create additional leadership opportunities for young members of Congress as incumbent Democratic leaders continue to hold their positions.
Although she often avoids making headlines, Clark is not ashamed to raise her views to the top. As vice-president of the Democratic Caucasus House, she is the highest female member of the House, apart from Pelosi, and a close ally of the speaker.
Clark has spent much of the last four years campaigning across the country trying to elect women and minorities. As Democrats continue to push for indifferent election results, Clark will be able to demonstrate her success working at the DCCC in 2018, when Democrats saw big gains in this House.
Sikilini, a progressive Democrat and the first member of the House leadership to identify as gay, won national recognition as a member of the House Justice Committee that drafted anti-Trump articles. He was also among the first Democrats in the House to support an indictment, unlike many of his fellow Democrats who were reluctant to support a public inquiry.
How the votes will work
Incoming members of the next Congress are allowed to vote in the by-elections, which are being held – for the first time – through an encrypted iPhone application issued by the House and designed “in collaboration with some of its leading cryptologists” nation, “Jeffries said in a letter to members he received Friday from CNN.
“The votes will be secured by end-to-end encryption and the vote of a member of parliament will remain secret to everyone except the member himself,” he said in the letter. “Each candidate will have a group of users who will monitor the encrypted electronic broadcast and the ballot during each election.”
Democrats convened a video conference earlier Wednesday, where all members could hear from leading candidates. In voting polls, Democrats will have 15 minutes to vote on the application.
Jeffries said the Caucasian made a test run of the voting app, voting which musician is the greatest of all time, ranking the votes of Aretha Franklin, Bruce Springsteen, Selena and Bono.
“Selena finished a strong quarter, Bono a third, Boss finished second and with more than 50% of the vote, the soul queen Aretha Franklin,” he said. “We welcome all these legends that take us to this new Covid era where we are required to vote electronically.”
