House Democrats on Tuesday morning chose Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to lead them again in the next Congress, after a bruising midterm election that saw Republicans pick up 11 seats in the House.

Pelosi didn't have any opposition, which made her re-election a shoo-in this time around.

Pelosi became the first woman Speaker of the House in 2007, but became the minority leader in 2011 after Republicans won back the House.

House Democrats have said since the midterm elections that they need to do a better job getting Democrats out to vote. Several have noted that only one-third of registered voters turned out nation-wide earlier this month.

Republicans have said the election shows voters aren't satisfied with Democratic priorities, and want Congress to focus on economic growth.
