    “It’s time to elect a progressive majority in Congress accountable to strong, grassroots movements that push support for issues like Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, racial justice, & more,” she tweeted Friday.

    “My ambition right now is to be a little less lonely in Congress,” AOC told the New York Times.

    But she may not last in Congress: Already in hot water for refusing to pay dues to her caucus’ fundraising arm, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, she’s now devoting her resources instead to defeating Democrats.

    Don’t be surprised when the established Democrats who’ll control redistricting after the 2020 Census do their best to eliminate her seat.

    I double checked to be sure and it is possible.

    I’m not sure why she has to give money to the DCCC as Justice Democrats got her elected and the DCCC usually works against progressives.

    Hi jlp,

    Funds from fund raising to be paid to either the DCCC or the DSCC are called “dues” based on “call time” reaped by phoning rich contributors in a call center deep within the capitol.  Beto O’Rourke spelled it out in the following video from 2018.  Most important information in the first 10 minutes.  Discussion of “call time” starts at 3:05.

    Fascinating that having ideals is considered “waging war” while actively trying to kill your constituents – as is the case with ALL anti-M4A Democrats – is considered “normal”
