Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has been nominated by the Democratic Caucus to be speaker of the House and will face a full floor vote on Jan. 3.

Why it matters: Pelosi, who has faced a wave of resistance from Democrats that believe the party needs fresh leadership, told reporters she thinks she's "in pretty good shape" to get the 218 votes necessary to be elected speaker for the second time. If elected, Pelosi will serve as a de facto opposition leader to President Trump, responsible not only for advancing the Democratic Party's policy agenda, but also for setting their strategy for investigating the administration.

Full House Democratic leadership results:

  • House majority leader: Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.)
  • House majority whip: Rep. James E. Clyburn (D-S.C.)
  • House Democratic Caucus chair: Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.)
  • Congressional Black Caucus chair: Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.)
  • Assistant House Democratic leader: Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.)

This list will be updated as more results come in.

In her first sit-down interview since being named Joe Biden's running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris talked about what she'll do to fight for women if elected VP, and how the Democrats are thinking about voter turnout strategies ahead of November.

What they're saying: "In a Biden-Harris administration women are going to be a priority, understanding that women have many priorities and all of them must be acknowledged," Harris told The 19th*'s Errin Haines-Whack.

Facebook goes after Apple

Facebook is seeking to force a face-off with Apple over its 30% in-app purchase commission fee, which Facebook suggests hurts small businesses struggling to get by during the pandemic.

The big picture: Facebook has never publicly gone after Apple, a key strategic partner, this aggressively. Both companies face antitrust scrutiny, which in Apple's case has centered on the very fee structure Facebook is now attacking.
