House Democrats Asking Members Not To Join Biden Administration For Fear Of Losing Majority

Even though President Donald Trump is pursuing legal challenges to the election results, House Democrats are preparing for a Joe Biden administration by urging members not to join his team, worrying that too many lost members could cost the party its majority.

The New York Post reported that House leaders, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), are asking members to stay out of the incoming Biden administration for fear that Republicans could pick up the vacated seats. Sources told the outlet Sunday that Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) are both trying to keep their fragile majority by discouraging members from jumping ship to join Biden.

“Nancy is telling House members, ‘Now is not the time to leave,’” a Democratic Party official told the Post.

The outlet was also told Hoyer was prodding members into staying in the House, going so far as to tell the Biden transition team to leave his members alone so they can keep the majority.
