Several House Democrats were on a flight from the West Coast that was diverted due to a medical emergency, and the lawmakers could miss votes Tuesday night.

The California Democrats were on an American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Washington when the flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Kansas City at about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Reps. Linda Sanchez, Tony Cardenas, Alan Lowenthal and Nanette Barragán are all on the flight. Other members are also said to be on the plane but have not been confirmed by POLITICO.
