DCCC: Helping Elect a Republican? Sure, We’ll Work With You. The Intercept, 12/16/2019
As reported by The Intercept today, the DCCC has paid millions of dollars to a consulting firm that works with Republicans. Meanwhile, their policy of “blacklisting” firms who work with candidates outside of the Democratic establishment continues to hurt progressive Democrats.
Our Revolution refuses to back down. We will continue supporting diverse and progressive candidates like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib by taking on the political establishment in swing states across our country.
Last year, the DCCC helped elect Jeff Van Drew to Congress in New Jersey. This weekend, Congressman Van Drew announced that he will be switching parties to run in 2020 as a Republican.
By supporting conservative candidates like Jeff Van Drew, the DCCC is actively hurting the Democratic Party. Our only way of fighting back is to hold competitive primaries where we can elect candidates who will represent the popular progressive policies that voters actually want to support in the general election.
Our Revolution is going to keep fighting — with, or without them.
