House Republicans announced Tuesday they will hold leadership elections on Nov. 14, to replace outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., is widely expected to win the votes to lead Republicans in the next Congress.

However, it's anticipated that McCarthy will be House minority leader, as polls suggest Democrats will win the House majority back.

McCarthy is also not running unopposed — Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, is vying to be the GOP's next House leader, although most expect the votes aren't there for him.

Democrats will have to hold their own leadership election, and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has made it clear she wants to return as speaker if Democrats take back the House.

The House Republican Conference announced Tuesday that the leadership election will be held from 1-5 p.m. on Nov. 14, a day after a leadership election forum is held for Republicans.
