Minimal Leadership Changes Anticipated in the 113th Congress
Leadership in the House and Senate is not expected to significantly change. Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) will retain their roles in the House. It is also expected that Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Assistant Minority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) will remain in place, though Leader Pelosi will be formally announcing her intentions on November 14. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will continue to lead their caucuses.
The Democratic and Republican Caucuses in both the House and Senate will meet November 14 to conduct official leadership elections for the 113th Congress.
In the Senate, most committee chairs will retain their posts; formal announcements and votes for up to six new committee chairmanships are expected in January. The House will see several chairmanship changes due to retirements and GOP term limits. The House Republican Steering Committee is expected to select committee chairmen after Thanksgiving.
