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:

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.
