    Incoming U.S. Rep. Lori Trahan is planning to support Nancy Pelosi as the next House speaker.

    Trahan, who beat out a crowded field to win the seat being vacated by fellow Democrat Niki Tsongas, told The Lowell Sun on Friday she has signed a letter backing Pelosi as Democrats prepare to formally retake the chamber in January.

    Rep. Seth Moulton, a Democrat representing a district next to Trahan's, has been organizing opposition to Pelosi as speaker.
