WASHINGTON—In a closed caucus session Wednesday, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., won her party’s nomination for speaker of the House of Representatives for the next congressional session. Democrats voted 203-32 for Pelosi, who ran unopposed. She called her selection “a vote of confidence,” but the 78-year-old will probably have to flip 15 votes to secure the seat on Jan. 3 since the entire House will vote on her nomination. Pelosi previously served as speaker from 2007 to 2011.
