Democrats elected Nancy Pelosi as speaker of the House on Thursday, placing her in the history books as one of only a few lawmakers to ever wield the gavel multiple times.
Pelosi won the speakership with 220 votes, strictly along party lines.
She becomes one of just a few lawmakers to serve as speaker in two, non-consecutive Congresses.
Pelosi takes over the House majority while the government remains in a partial shutdown.
