Nancy Pelosi has reportedly begun rallying Democrats in the event the House is called upon to decide the 2020 presidential election.
The House is constitutionally provided the privilege of selecting the president in the unlikely event of an Electoral College tie. A "contingent election" such as this has not happened since 1824, and happened only once before that in 1800, so there is some confusion about what it actually entails.

Both are so far out of the mainstream, even among Democrats, that over a dozen House Democrats in swing states are reportedly rallying behind former vice president Joe Biden (D-DE).
Last weekend, I blogged about then-Democrat Rep. Jeff Van Drew (NJ) deciding to switch to the Republican party. He waited until after the impeachment vote and was one of the Democrats to vote against impeachment, but he has now officially become a Republican.
