House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) “is on the verge of a deal with Democratic rebels once intent on denying her the speakership, an accord that could deliver her the decisive votes needed to reclaim the gavel,” Politico reports.
“The California Democrat and some of her fiercest party critics have tentatively agreed to limit her speakership to four years at most… In return, several lawmakers who had vowed publicly to vote against Pelosi on the House floor in a critical Jan. 3 roll call, will instead back her ascent to the position she held eight years ago.”
Said one source: “It’s pretty much done. The issue is how do we wrap this up. What are the procedural steps that we need to get this done?”
