Current U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will be a candidate for minority leader as Democrats start thinking about handing control of the chamber to Republicans. Pelosi’s decision means there will be heightened drama when Dems pick new leaders. A number in the caucus, including Rep. Dan Boren, D-Muskogee, have said they won’t support Pelosi as leader. Blue Dog Rep. Heath Shuler, D-N.C., said he’ll challenge Pelosi if no other moderate else steps forward. The one to watch is current Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md. Hoyer is more moderate than the speaker, and their relationship is more professional than cordial. Hoyer might see this week’s election debacle as a signal it’s his time to be top banana. Current Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., also might jump in.
