AOC & DCCC go to war…(against each other!)
Michael McAdams | April 1, 2019

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t satisfied with making every House Democrat own her insane socialist ideas like the Green New Deal.

She’s now gathering her band of socialists to torpedo the DCCC. Ocasio-Cortez is urging donors to withhold money from House Democrats’ campaign arm to protest the organization’s new policy blacklisting firms that are working to unseat sitting members.

Nothing like a little inter-party civil war to keep things interesting!
