About the Anti-Administration Party
"Anti-Administration" is an informal factional label assigned to members of the first through third Congresses who typically voted in a bloc to oppose the Washington administration. Many of these Representatives and Senators were delegates to the Constitutional Conventions and favoured the "Anti-Federalist" position, against the new Constitution and centralized national government. This label is identified with Presidents James Madison and Thomas Jefferson. Classifications of members as belonging to this faction follow the labels in Martis, Kenneth. \textit{Historical Atlas of Political Parties in the United States Congress 1789-1989}. As power consolidated within formal political parties, most "Pro-Administration" members who continued in Congress joined the Democratic-Republican Party ("Jeffersonian Republicans").
