(FOX NEWS) – Nancy Pelosi on Thursday recaptured the speaker’s gavel as her party returned to power in the House of Representatives, overcoming more than a dozen defections from rebellious Democrats.

In her new role, she will immediately confront the ongoing standoff over the partial government shutdown, even as she tries to set her party’s agenda in the 116th Congress and her deputies wield new power to scrutinize the Trump administration on numerous fronts.
Pelosi, who previously served as speaker for two terms, has eyed a return to the position ever since Republicans took the House in 2010.
