Shuler has stated publicly that he will run for the position if nobody else does, reports The Hill.

His potential challenge to Pelosi is expected to be a primary topic on both shows.

Pelosi's stint as House speaker is ending because Republicans won a majority of seats in the chamber in the recent midterm elections. She has announced that she will run for the position of minority leader, but 18 Democrats have so far stated that they won't support her bid.

Elections for House leadership positions are to be held on Wednesday.
