Presumptive President-elect Joe Biden has already caused infighting among the left by ignoring progressive demands and appointing former lobbyists to his senior staff.
Biden has announced last week he would appoint Ronald Klain as his chief of staff, then named Steve Ricchetti counselor to the president Tuesday, Fox News reported.
Klain and Ricchetti both previously spent time in the lobbying industry.
In between the two announcements, over 50 liberal advocacy organizations signed a letter urging Biden to keep anyone with ties to the corporate world from serving in the high levels of his administration.
“We urge you to build out an administration that is structured so as to be able to meet the historic needs of this moment — and to uphold the highest values of the Democratic Party by operating in service of the wellbeing of the general public,” the Nov. 12 letter read.
