Rep. Fudge: Democrats Who Voted Aginst Pelosi Showed Courage

On Wednesday, Nancy Pelosi was re-elected as House Minority Leader by a vote of 134 to 63, successfully defeating Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan.

Following the vote, House Democrats held a press conference in which Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH) said those members who voted against Pelosi showed “courage.”

“He didn’t lose today. Today, we made a caucus more responsible to its members, and so for that, I congratulate him. One-third of the members of this caucus had the courage to come out and say we needed a change, and I congratulate all of them,” Fudge told reporters.
