If Democrats flip the House of Representative tonight, California members could be poised for leadership positions.

At the top, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco), already the minority leader, could resume her position as Speaker of the House.

Many other Democrats in the California delegation could take over chairmanships, including Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) of the intelligence committee. Devin Nunes (R-Tulare) currently holds that post.

Joining GV Wire in 2016, Taub covers politics, government and elections, mainly in the Fresno/Clovis area. He also writes columns about local eateries (Appetite for Fresno), pro wrestling (Off the Bottom Rope), and media (Media Man). Prior to joining the online news source, Taub worked as a radio producer for KMJ and PowerTalk 96.7 in Fresno. He also worked as an assignment editor for KCOY-TV in Santa Maria, California, and KSEE-TV in Fresno. He has also worked behind the scenes for several sports broadcasts, including the NCAA basketball tournament, and the Super Bowl. When not spending time with his family, Taub loves to officially score Fresno Grizzlies games. Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, Taub is a die-hard Giants and 49ers fan.
