House Democratic leaders agreed Wednesday to stick with their plan to hold leadership elections next week, Democratic sources said.
"Most Members want to get the election over with and be able to move on to the legislative things we need to do in the lame duck," said one Democratic source with knowledge of the call.
Democratic Reps. Peter DeFazio (Ore.) and Marcy Kaptur (Ohio) are circulating a letter asking to delay leadership elections, now scheduled for Nov. 17, until December so Members can digest last week's historic losses.
