Outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder will stay on the job... at least until after next month's elections.
FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern has more from the White House:
President Obama plans to wait until after next month's midterm elections to name a nominee for Attorney General.
Eric Holder announced his resignation last month, but says he'll stay on the job until a successor is confirmed.
A source close the process tells FOX News, Senate Democrats asked the White House to hold off on naming a successor so it would not get mired in election year politics.
The Senate returns a week after the election for a lame duck session. It's unclear if a new Attorney General could be confirmed before a new Congress is sworn-in early next year.
