Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ) is set to announce he will back a challenge
to the FL-13 election lodged by Democratic candidate Christine Jennings.
According to a press release from Holt's office, the congressman will announce at noon today that "he intends to take steps to put the House on record that no action taken on January 4, 2007 regarding the disputed election in Florida will prejudice the legal case or any investigation of the House Administration Committee."
Jennings, who is contesting her November loss to Republican Vern Buchanan, has already won the support
of Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has so far remained silent on the issue, other than to say
she is "monitoring" the situation.
