Biden Transition Team: Stop Lobbying Us For Top Jobs

Politico reports:

Joe Biden’s transition team has a message for anyone publicly jockeying for a job in a potential Biden administration: Knock it off.

Members of the transition team have been fuming at the recent flood of stories listing people in contention for the top spots should Biden win the presidential race next month, according to Democratic officials who have spoken to them. They warn that the efforts could backfire, knocking those participating out of contention for high-profile posts.

“There is speculation with every transition, but public campaigning for administration jobs during an election of this magnitude is tone-deaf,” said a Democratic strategist close to transition officials.
