>> Her nomination comes fresh off the November 6th election that gave Democrats majority control of the chamber for the first time in eight years. Now the 78 year-old San Francisco liberal face is in even tougher challenge. Lock up the votes ahead of the full house election in early January by winning over some of her Democratic detractors, who argue the party needs new leadership to take on President Trump's legislative agenda.

>> She took the gavel in 2007, before handing it back to Republicans four years later. If she pulls off the rare feat of securing a second non-consecutive term as Speaker, Pelosi said she'll pursue an agenda that includes investing in infrastructure projects and health care and pledged to hold investigations into the Trump administration.
