The committee denies that the Republican-led House is in further trouble

The committee denies that the Republican-led House is in further trouble

Vice President Harris was like a coach trying to rally her team on her first visit to House Democrats this year on Wednesday morning.

Harris was at the Capitol to revive the Democratic caucus and emphasize that they can still exert influence in the minority if they stick together.

“For some of you, welcome to the minority,” Harris said. “It will be different.”

Several people in the room said Harris emphasized spending time away from Washington and often reminded voters what a Democratic majority in Congress could accomplish, particularly highlighting the infrastructure bill, the sweeping health, climate change and inflation reduction bill, and the law aimed at boosting domestic semiconductor production.
