Thursday was supposed to mark a vote for leadership in the Democratic Party in the U.S. House of Representatives.
In past years, this has largely been a formality, keeping House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at the top.
But a group of representatives, including Rep. Seth Moulton, of Massachusetts, have called for and won a delay on the vote until after Thanksgiving.

Moulton joined Morning Edition to discuss the situation.
