AOC Ignores Dems, Shares Cash With Progressive Candidates

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-N.Y U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-N.Y

"Look, she has a lot of followers", Bustos replied.

"First, I disagree with the policy of blacklisting groups that help progressive candidates", she said.

Ocasio-Cortez's sizable cash haul - $1.97 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and over $5.3 million for the entire year - is one of the largest revealed so far among members of Congress, and the size of her fundraising base will likely stoke speculation about the New Yorker's ambitions.

When asked about her role might be as a member of Congress during a Joe Biden presidency, she responded with a groan, according to the NY magazine piece.

"I am also not the only one", Ocasio-Cortez said in response to the story.

DCCC chairwoman Cheri Bustos dismissed questions about Ocasio-Cortez' stance, saying that the DCCC has raised record funds anyway.

"Yeah, I don't know why people are up in arms about this", she wrote."Many other countries have multiparty democracies, where several parties come together in a coalition to govern". "PETA is urging her supporters not to follow her lead in this case and to stick up for the underdog by choosing to give a lovable mutt a new lease on life". "We'll get about it as soon as we can", he said.

"Look, she brings a voice".

She also referred to moderate Democrats as "the tea party of the left", and said that criticism of the Democratic Party was necessary and valid. "And I have an appreciation for that".

AOC raised an unprecedented $1.42 million in the third quarter of 2019 - and had an eye-popping $1.9 million in cash on hand as of September 30, according to the Federal Election Commission.

"I want to help front members by putting the money directly in my pocket", said Ocasio-Cortez. "You can't give me a straight "yes" or no'?"

"Look, I have respect for all 235 of the Democrats in our caucus".

When asked about her role might be as a member of Congress if Biden were elected president, she responded with a groan: "Oh God, in any other country, Joe Biden and I would not be in the same party, but in America, we are". And, look, you're asking a "yes" or "no" question.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has been working closely with the White House on strategy, said Friday afternoon that the Senate is "anxious to get started".
