Pelosi Aide Denies Daughter’s Quote on Breitbart Site

Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's decision to stick around in leadership at the beginning of the 112th Congress angered a number of her party’s moderates, who would have preferred her longtime rival, Rep. Steny Hoyer.

But her decision to stick around angered a number of the partyís moderates, who would have preferred her longtime rival, Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), 72, as the Caucusís new leader. Hoyer declined to challenge Pelosi and was selected as Whip instead. The moderates still mounted a futile effort to topple her. About 43 Democrats voted for Blue Dog Rep. Heath Shuler (D-N.C.) instead of Pelosi for Leader, and 19 refused to vote for her for Speaker in the vote enshrining Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) in that role in January.
