Pelosi's new Democrat in the house

From NBC's Mike Viqueira and Elizabeth Wilner


Presumptive Speaker Nancy Pelosi now has a sixth grandchild. Pelosi's daughter Alexandra, of "Journeys with George" fame, has finally given birth after her due date, which was a few days before election day, required her mother's election-day and post-election schedule to quietly be marked "tentative." Baby, mom and dad are all said to be doing well. The happy grandmother is expected to be elected Speaker by her caucus on Thursday, with a formal vote by the entire House to follow on January 3.
