New political realities test Pelosi, Democrats in lame-duck session

The House Democratic leader asked her lawmakers Monday to search for “common ground” with Republicans over the next few weeks as they return to Capitol Hill for a lame-duck session of Congress, facing new political realities and a different set of urgent priorities.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, in line to become House speaker in the new Congress next year, signaled Democrats will pick their battles as they look to fulfill the campaign promises they made.

“In the next few weeks, we need to be unified, find common ground with Republicans in our legislative engagements, but stand our ground when we must,” she said.

There are plenty of tests already lined up.
