Maine Rep.-elect Golden votes against Pelosi

Sen. Chuck Schumer and U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi will meet with President Trump next week Fox News has learned

Newly-elected House Democrats are jockeying for power as Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi scrambles to assemble the required votes to be elected Speaker in the new Congress.

"Seven bipartisan appropriations bills are hanging in the balance for one reason and one reason only: President Trump", Schumer said on the Senate floor, according to Politico.

"The Congress must immediately pass legislation to preserve the Special Counsel investigation", Pelosi said in a statement. But with his fellow Republicans set to lose control of the House of Representatives in January following Democrats' gains in elections this month, Trump's comments have raised concern that this time he may not back down.

As House Democrats met in private in the Capitol, they faced a simple "yes" or "no" choice on Pelosi for speaker.

House Democrats voted 203-32 Wednesday in the closed-door session.

Rep. Elijah Cummings pleaded with Democratic holdouts to reconsider Pelosi's bid and seemed bewildered with the more than 30 members who voted against her. "That's what we promised in the election for the people", Pelosi (D-Calif.) said at a news conference on Friday.

"I think we're in pretty good shape", she said.

She needs 218 votes to be elected.

Moulton has made clear that he's not running for speaker, but has only floated one possible alternative so far: Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge, a former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, who said on Saturday that she's been "overwhelmed" by the encouragement she's received from colleagues and will announce whether she'll run after Thanksgiving.

Still, Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi voiced optimism about prospects for the legislation.
