Despite running in a district 11 points more Republican than the national average, Joe Cunningham beat a deeply-flawed Republican in South Carolina.

One of the positions that made him palatable to Charleston-area voters was his stance against Nancy Pelosi.

On the opening day of this newest session of Congress, Cunningham picked Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL) as his choice for Speaker.

Bustos also represents a Trump district and despite her liberal voting record, has won repeatedly. She is the incoming chairwoman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
