The Majority Leader of the House of Representatives is a member of the party with the majority of seats in the House, and is chosen by the members of the party. The House members themselves will use the term "Democratic Leader" or "Republican Leader" to designate the majority and minority leaders. Whichever party is in the majority will also elect the Speaker of the House, virtually always a senior congressman, who will be the highest-ranking member of that party in the House.

As of June 2014, the House Majority Leader is Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and the House Minority leader is Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

The Speaker of the House for the 113th Congress is John Boehner (R-OH).
