Eric Cantor (R-Va.), who became the first House Majority Leader to ever lose a re-election on Tuesday night, plans to step down from his leadership position by the end of July, the Washington Post reports.
The Post, citing "three Republicans familiar with his plans," said that Cantor will officially announce his plans later Wednesday at a meeting with colleagues. A press conference is slated for 4:30 p.m.
Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, said Wednesday afternoon that he plans to run for House majority leader and noted that border security would be his top priority, Reuters reported.
