Home Democrats panicked over poll numbers may adjourn 3 weeks early to campaign

Posted on September 21, 2010


House leaders are considering adjourning as early as the end of this week, which would give lawmakers five and a half weeks to campaign before the Nov. 2 election but could also leave them exposed to allegations that they didn’t finish their work in Washington.

The House hasn’t adjourned before Sept. 30 in an election year since 1960.
