Sacked Democratic Party Chair Upsets Ocasio-Cortez: ‘She Had Almost Nothing To Do’ With Our Wins

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (DN.Y.) — the House Democratic campaign chairman — blasted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (DN.Y.) on Thursday for blaming the party’s losses in New York on the state’s Democratic leadership.

“Let’s face it, it had almost nothing to do with what turned out to be a historic defense of our majority,” Maloney said. The New York Times. “I didn’t pay a single dollar of membership fees. She did nothing for our frontline candidates except give them money when they didn’t want it from her.”

Ocasio-Cortez criticized the leadership of the New York Democratic Party on Wednesday, after Tuesday’s midterm elections showed the state moving to the right. Republicans managed to flip four seats in the Democratic Empire State House, including Maloney’s seat.

Ocasio-Cortez specifically called for the resignation of Jay Jacobs, chairman of the New York State Democratic Committee.

However, Maloney hit back at the New York congresswoman, questioning her level of support in the midterms.

“I haven’t seen her for one minute of these midterms to help the majority in our House,” he said. “So I’m not sure what advice she has, but I’m sure she’ll be generous with it.”

Ocasio-Cortez responded Thursday night, claiming Maloney is ignoring her campaign efforts.

“[Maloney] he wooed me for swing race donations and that was the first thing I did this term,” she said Twitter. “Over a quarter of a million for the Dems this cycle, the DCCC facilitated some, and now he’s denying it. If he is not aware of my visit to CA and the efforts we made, that is on him.”

House Democrats appear to have fought back the GOP’s “red tide” in the midterms, defying predictions that they would suffer massive losses. However, Republicans still look set to take control of the House.
