House Democrats Ask Who Will Lead Them After Election

“Democrats’ improved but still slim prospects for keeping control of the House are further clouding the party’s opaque leadership succession plans,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

“In interviews with more than two dozen lawmakers and aides, Democrats said they expect the party’s top three leaders to step aside if their party loses the majority in the midterm elections. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and her lieutenants, all in their 80s, haven’t said whether they see it that way. While election analysts still favor Republicans to win the chamber this fall, a surprise victory by Democrats in November could upend all bets.”
