Paul Ryan was re-elected by the House Republican conference Tuesday to serve a second term as speaker of the House. The official vote installing him as the speaker will come in early January, when the next session of Congress begins.
House Democrats decided Tuesday to delay their leadership elections until after Thanksgiving -- a move that will give reeling Democrats time to nurse their wounds and could spell trouble for longtime leader Nancy Pelosi.
After a closed-door meeting, some of Pelosi's supporters said it was time for some serious soul-searching in the Democratic Party.
The vote is set for November 30th.
