- House Democrats took a majority Thursday for the first time in eight years.
- Nancy Pelosi becomes speaker as the party tries to balance checking President Donald Trump and not alienating the moderate and independent voters who helped them win a House majority.
- The partial government shutdown, corruption, drug prices and infrastructure are among the topics Democrats could move to address in the early days of their majority.
