The powerful and purportedly nonpartisan group of black lawmakers in Congress currently has no Republican members. Donalds’ office reportedly said that the congressman has spoken with at least three members of the group about joining, but he has not received an answer, and the chances of joining nearly a quarter way into the 117th Congress look slim. Donalds said in February he wanted to join in order to change the caucus’s liberal dominance.An aide to Donalds said, “Congressman Donalds has expressed interest in joining the CBC but has yet to receive an official invitation. If given, he’d gladly accept. The CBC did not respond to questions about the status of Donalds’ membership or why he was not being let in,” the aide said.
I’m going to go out on a limb and assume it’s because the CBC doesn’t want black members who undermine the left’s argument that Republicans are racist.
