Representative Marcia Fudge of Ohio, the only Democrat to openly discuss a challenge to Nancy Pelosi’s speaker bid, cut a deal and endorsed Ms. Pelosi on Tuesday.
That she wins re-election as speaker and makes concessions along the way.
The Democrats who went public in a letter with their demand for new leadership hailed Nancy Pelosi as “a historic figure” but pledged “to change the status quo.”
As she prepares to lead the House of Representatives again, the most powerful Democrat in Washington will have to navigate between a rampaging president and her colleagues’ plans for fighting back.
Just get it out of your systems now, please.
Among House Democrats, some strongly believe it is time for Nancy Pelosi to step aside for new leadership. But a serious challenger has yet to step forward.

As Ms. Pelosi moves to line up the votes to resume her speakership of the House, she secured an endorsement from President Trump, who may relish the chance to spar with her over the next two years.
Despite warnings from within the G.O.P., Republicans lost their unity and grip on messaging, allowing the Democrats to gain a majority of congressional seats.
The bumbling, exasperating Democratic Party claws back one branch of government.
The party didn’t get everything it wanted. But it got what it and the country need.
The idea is to show voters that Democrats are a governing party, and to extend an arm of cooperation to President Trump.
