It’s not often I agree with Congresswomen Ayanna Pressley (D, MA) or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D, NY), but on this I do. It seems that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee intends to blacklist political firms that support primary challenges to current (senior) Progressive-Democratic Party Representatives and Senators in Congress.
Here’s Pressley on the Party’s attempts to limit voter choice:
If the DCCC enacts this policy to blacklist vendors who work with challengers, we risk undermining an entire universe of potential candidates and vendors—especially women and people of color—whose ideas, energy, and innovation need a place in our party[.]
Here’s Ocasio-Cortez’ tweet on the Party’s attempts to limit voter choice:
The @DCCC’s new rule to blacklist+boycott anyone who does business w/ primary challengers is extremely divisive & harmful to the party.
This is a shameless attempt to deny American citizens their own choices regarding whom they’ll have represent them in Government. It’s a demand that putative challengers and us citizens—both—should just sit down, shut up, do what we’re told, and enjoy the portions we’re given.
It’s a mark of the desperation of the Progressive-Democratic Party’s leadership.
It’s instructive of the nature of the Party’s reign were it to succeed in taking over our Federal government.
