Whoa: This Is The Latest Battle Between Progressives And The DCCC

Progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) last week blasted the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) for implementing a new policy that would deter Democratic consultants from taking on primary challengers as clients. The goal is simple: to keep the progressive challengers at bay. The DCCC said they would no longer award contracts to those consultants or recommend them to House candidates, which is said to protect moderate incumbents.

AOC took to Twitter to encourage supporters to stop donating to the DCCC and instead, make a contribution to individual progressive challengers.

She highlighted a few candidates she aligned with who she wanted supporters to support monetarily, like California's Mike Levin, Illinois' Lauren Underwood and Rep. Katie Porter.

Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) also took to Twitter to blast the DCC's decision, saying the DCC's decision negatively impacts women and people of color:

What's ironic is Speaker Nancy Pelosi appears to heading to New York City to appear at a DCCC event. The event, more than likely, is a 2020 fundraiser.

These exchanges are the perfect example that the Democratic Party is having their own internal fighting and growing paints. The Republican Party had a similar fight when the Tea Party came about. The party had to decide how far right they were going to go. They had to determine if they'd stay more moderate to attract independents or go further right to keep the base happy. Democrats are seeing that same issue with the progressive wing of their party. People like AOC, Rashia Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley want the party become more progressive but other Democrats, like Joe Manchin, think that's taking the party too far to the left.

Now it's conservatives' turn to sit back and watch.
