Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida will reportedly stay on as Democratic National Committee chief for another two-year term.

"The House Democratic leadership mold continues to harden, as Reps.Chris Van Hollen of Maryland andDebbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida are expected to remain in their current positions, which are effectively out of the upper echelon of caucus leadership ranks," reports Roll Call.

That decision might be a little strange, since it was thought Wasserman Schultz was a weak surrogate for Barack Obamam during the presidential campaign. "Internal polling rates her the least effective of all Obama campaign surrogates," Politico reported during the campaign.

However, the plans might not be final. Roll Call adds, at the end of its story: "But neither Wasserman Schultz nor Van Hollen have formally announced their plans, as the Democratic leadership elections approach."
