New York Congressmember Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says she’s launching a new political action committee meant to challenge the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Ocasio-Cortez’s PAC would help fund progressive challengers to take on both Republican incumbents and centrist Democrats. The congressmember recently said she wouldn’t be “paying her dues” to the DCCC in the 2019-2020 election cycle and that she’d prefer to donate to individual Democratic candidates.
