A delegation of U.S. House members will travel to Haiti this weekend, where they'll observe the presidential elections being held on Sunday. The lawmakers are:

Democrats: James Clyburn (SC), John Conyers (MI), Barbara Lee (CA), Donna Christian-Christiansen (VI), Emanuel Cleaver (MO), Sheila Jackson-Lee (TX), Marcia Fudge (OH), Eddie Bernice Johnson (TX), Corrine Brown (FL), Laura Richardson (CA), and Hank Johnson (GA)

They'll get to Port-au-Prince Sunday morning and receive briefings from the U.S. ambassador to Haiti, meet with Haitian government officials, visit polling places, meet with NGOs involved in overseeing the elections, and get a "final election briefing" from a special representative to the UN Secretary General, Clyburn's office announced today.
