House Democrat Leadership

Heath Shuler (D-NC) plans a symbolic challenge to Nancy Pelosi (D-CA):
Rep. Heath Shuler plans to vote for himself rather than Rep. Nancy Pelosi during Wednesday’s floor vote for Speaker, and he predicted Monday that Democratic colleagues who are similarly displeased with her past leadership as Speaker would back him as well.
Unfortunately for Shuler, his "Democratic colleagues who are similarly displeased with" Nancy Pelosi lost their jobs this past November. House Democrats have trended further left as they increasingly represent urban areas that don't have to secure the votes of moderate Democrats.
