Pelosi Broadens Leadership Team in Fight to Retain Post

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON Nov 25, 2016, 9:21 PM ET

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi moved Friday to broaden her leadership team by naming three junior lawmakers to chair the party's messaging arm.

Pelosi also named two-term California colleague Eric Swalwell to co-chair the panel responsible for making committee assignments.

The announcement comes days before a leadership election in which Pelosi is being challenged by Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan for the party post she has held since 2002.

Pelosi is likely to retain her post, but Friday's moves come amid restiveness in the Democratic caucus, especially among junior members, after the elections.

"This team of new and experienced leaders is dedicated to working with their entire caucus to make the future better for the American people," Pelosi said in a statement.
