Democrats gather in Scottsdale for 2-day meeting

Posted: Updated:
SCOTTSDALE, AZ (AP) -

Democrats still savoring their 2012 presidential victory are meeting to map out strategies targeting Republican-controlled states in hopes of retaking control of the House of Representatives.

But Democratic National Committee delegates gathered in Scottsdale Thursday were also preparing to vote to demand the resignation of a fellow Democrat from the mayor's office in San Diego.

Mayor Bob Filner is under increasing pressure to resign after sexual harassment allegations from numerous women. Some of the women contend he cornered, groped and forcibly kissed them.

DNC chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Thursday she wants Filner out because of what she calls outrageous and unacceptable behavior. A vote is set for Friday.

Wasserman Schultz says Democrats are meeting in Republican-dominated Arizona to show that they're not ceding any region of the country.
