Rouda, Porter and Levin Support Pelosi for House Speaker; Cisneros Dissents

The House Democratic Caucus today voted 203-32 to nominate polarizing Rep. Nancy Pelosi to be the next Speaker of the House.

Among the newly-elected Democrat House members from Orange County, only Gil Cisneros of CA-39 opposed Pelosi.  Harley Rouda (CA-48) – who during the campaign dodged the question of whether he’d support Pelosi – signed a letter of support for the veteran San Francisco liberal lawmaker.

Rep. Lou Correa (CA-46), just re-elected to a second term and now the dean of the OC congressional delegation, voted for Pelosi.
