116th CONGRESS now in session: NANCY PELOSI (Dem) elected Speaker of the US House of Representatives
by TheGreenPapers.com Staff

Following a preceding pro forma session (gaveled into session at 11:56 AM EST [1656 GMT] by Congressman Steve Womack [R-Arkansas] as Speaker pro Tem and adjourned less than a minute thereafter) held in order to formally adjourn the outgoing 115th Congress sine die, the United States House of Representatives of the 116th Congress of the United States was first gaveled into session at 12:00 PM EST [1700 GMT], Thursday 3 January 2019, by outgoing Clerk of the House Karen L. Haas.

Congresswoman Nancy D. Pelosi of California [Democrat] (who had previously been Speaker of the House during the 110th and 111th Congresses, from 2007 through 2010) was returned to a full 2-year term as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 220 to 192 votes for Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California [Republican].

No Member of Congress other than Mrs. Pelosi and Mr. McCarthy had their names formally placed in nomination for Speaker of the House; nonetheless, 18 other votes for Speaker were scattered among 10 others: 5 votes were cast for Congressman Jim Jordan [Republican] of Ohio, 4 votes were cast for Congresswoman Cheri Bustos [Democrat] of Florida, 2 votes were cast for Senator Tammy Duckworth [Democrat] of Illinois, and there were also votes cast for unsuccessful gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams [Democrat] of Georgia, former Vice President Joe Biden [Democrat] of Georgia, Congresswoman Martha Fudge [Democrat] of Ohio, Congressman Joseph P. Kennedy 3d [Democrat] of Massachusetts, Congressman John Lewis [Democrat] of Georgia, Congressman Thomas Massie [Republican] of Kentucky, and Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy [Democrat] of Florida, each of whom received 1 vote.

In additon, 3 of 433 Members of Congress answering to the Roll Call voted 'Present'.

430 of said 433 votes thus having actually been cast for Speaker and Nancy Pelosi's 220 being a majority of said 430, Mrs. Pelosi was thereby returned to that post.


Following a short pro forma session for the sole purpose of adjourning the final Senate session of the 115th Congress (technically, the U.S. Senate is, unlike the House, a continuing body; thus, it is the House that formally adjourns a given Congress sine die), gaveled into brief session by Senator Deb Fischer [R-Nebraska] (appointed presiding officer for the purpose by outgoing Senate President pro Tempore Orrin Hatch [R-Utah]) at 11:50 AM EST [1650 GMT] and adjourned two minutes later, the United States Senate was called to order by Vice President of the United States Michael R. Pence, in his capacity as constitutional President of the Senate, at 12:05 PM EST [1705 GMT], Thursday 3 January 2019.

33 newly elected (or re-elected) Class 1 United States Senators were chosen for full six-year terms (beginning today, 3 January 2019) in the most recent [2018] Federal Elections, along with two Class 2 United States Senators chosen in Special Senate Elections to fill unexpired terms (both ending at Noon on 3 January 2021); in addition, one Class 3 United States Senator [Martha McSally, Republican of ARIZONA] had been appointed to fill a vacant seat which a United States Senator had resigned-- a total of 36 of the 100 members of the Senate all told: of these, 34 were sworn in at the dais in groups of four presenting themselves before the Vice President (Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith, Republican of MISSISSIPPI, elected in one of the aforementioned Special Elections, had previously been sworn on 17 December 2018 [the current term of a Senator elected in a Special Election technically goes back to the day following said election]; while Senator-elect Rick Scott, Republican of FLORIDA, is delaying taking his seat in the Senate until after his term as Governor of that State has expired on 8 January 2019), and all answered in the affirmative to the requisite Oath of Office posed as the following question:

  • Do you solemnly swear that you will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that you will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that you take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that you will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which you are about to enter?

Newly returned Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi took the same Oath, and in the same manner, as the above before administering the same Oath (again, in the same manner) to the assembled newly elected (or re-elected) members of the U.S. House of Representatives in the 116th Congress en masse as well.
