Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) reclaimed the gavel as speaker of the House Thursday, despite 13 House Democrats voting against her and two voting "present" — a procedural option that is not a vote for or against.

Why it matters: The split between Democrats who see Pelosi as the best possible foil to President Trump and those who sought a new generation of leadership threatened to upend her speaker bid in the immediate aftermath of the 2018 midterms. In the end, 21 Democrats who said they would support a different candidate ended up voting for Pelosi.

Here's who voted against Pelosi for speaker, and who they voted for instead:

  1. Anthony Brindisi (N.Y.): Joe Biden
  2. Jim Cooper (Tenn.): present
  3. Jason Crow (Colo.): Sen. Tammy Duckworth
  4. Joe Cunningham (S.C.): Rep. Cheri Bustos
  5. Jared Golden (Maine): Bustos
  6. Ron Kind (Wis.): Rep. John Lewis
  7. Conor Lamb (Pa.): Rep. Joe Kennedy
  8. Ben McAdams (Utah): Rep. Stephanie Murphy
  9. Kathleen Rice (N.Y.): Stacey Abrams
  10. Max Rose (N.Y.): Duckworth
  11. Kurt Schrader (Ore.): Rep. Marcia Fudge
  12. Mikie Sherrill (N.J.): Bustos
  13. Elissa Slotkin (Mich.): present
  14. Abigail Spanberger (Va.): Bustos
  15. Jeff Van Drew (N.J.): "No" changed to present

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar announced Tuesday night he will lead a delegation to Taiwan "in the coming days."

Why it matters: It's the highest-level visit by a U.S. cabinet official to Taiwan since 1979. Azar is also the first U.S. Cabinet member to visit the island state in six years. The visit has angered China, which views Taiwan as part of its territory. Chinese officials accused the U.S. early Wednesday of "endangering peace" with the visit, AFP reports.

A major explosion has slammed central Beirut, Lebanon, damaging buildings as far as several miles away and injuring scores of people.

Driving the news: At least 100 people have been killed and over 4,000 injured in the blast — and the death toll is likely to rise, the Lebanese Red Cross said, per AP. Prime Minister Hassan Diab said the explosions occurred at a warehouse that had been storing 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate for the past six years.
