IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Majority Democrats in the U.S. House say they will allow an Iowa Republican to take office while they review her opponent's claim that her six-vote victory was wrongly decided. 
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said "yes" when asked at a news conference whether Mariannette Miller-Meeks will be sworn in with other members of the House on Sunday. Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said later that Democrats "intend to provisionally seat" Miller-Meeks pending a review of the challenge filed by her Democratic opponent Rita Hart. 
Hart asked the House to investigate and overturn the state-certified results. The House Administration Committee is reviewing the matter.
