Washington (CNN) - Going into their first leadership meeting in over a week, Democratic leaders were split on whether to keep pushing New York Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign.
Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Steve Israel– chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee– and Rep. Chris Van Hollen all reiterated that Weiner should step down.
But Democratic Caucus Chairman John Larson said "these decisions are ultimately left to his constituents."
Caucus Vice Chair Xavier Becerra, when pressed if he agreed with Pelosi's call for Weiner to resign, said. "I think she was right to call for an ethics investigation."
As for those who want the congressman to resign, Steve Israel, one of the Democratic leaders who issued coordinated statements calling on Weiner to step down, said:
"He's awaiting the arrival of his wife, having a conversation with his wife. I hope he makes the judgment that he should resign."
Israel confirmed that Weiner told him when they talked Saturday that he wanted to wait to decide until his wife returns from her trip with Hillary Clinton. While CNN has reported that from several Democratic sources who talked to Weiner, it's believed this is the first time anyone has said this on the record.
Meanwhile, Van Hollen said "I hope he will heed the advice of most of the membership."
