House moderate Democrats strike deal on rules with Pelosi

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A group of moderates in the U.S. House of Representatives struck a deal on Wednesday to change procedural rules, boosting Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi’s chances of regaining the speaker’s gavel in January.

Nine Democratic members of the group, called the Problem Solvers caucus, had said they would only vote for a speaker who supported the reforms to House operating rules.
