The Defending Majority

Bloomberg says House Republican strategists "are pouring money into Connecticut and Florida to protect endangered House members while scaling back in Ohio and Pennsylvania," where nine seats are in play, but where candidates "have suffered in the financial chess match." 

House Chief Deputy Whip Eric Cantor (R) tells Roll Call in an interview that "he is advocating a postponement of the scheduled Nov. 15 GOP leadership elections until after the House ethics committee releases its report on its investigation into former Rep. Mark Foley's (R-Fla.) behavior with House pages."   

The Hill reports that "several rank-and-file House Republicans... already are arguing in favor of a post-Election Day leadership shake-up."
