The resistance among Senate Republicans to the near-$2 trillion stimulus package under negotiation between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House has spurred some House Democrats to oppose the idea of a pre-election vote on any bill.

Pelosi told some members of House Democratic leadership in a call Thursday that some of the party’s lawmakers have told her they don’t want to come back to the Capitol for a vote before Nov. 3 if the Senate isn’t ready to act, according to a person familiar with the conversation.
