Amid the sweeping document requests and multiplying investigations that have come with Democratic control of the House, another consequence of the 2018 midterm election was noted this week on Capitol Hill: Vice President Mike Pence has lost some office space.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., took back an honorary office on the House side of the Capitol that former Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., had given to Pence, NPR first reported Tuesday. Pence served alongside Ryan in the House for more than a decade.
Pence rarely used the office, which NPR described as “a symbolic gesture of the warm relationship Pence enjoyed with Ryan and the House GOP.” As the president of the Senate, Pence has an office on that chamber’s side of the building.
