The gloves are coming off in the Capitol Hill brawl between Democratic moderates and progressives.
Queens Democratic boss and 11-term congressman Greg Meeks took a thinly-veiled jab at fellow Big Apple Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday, urging her to back off her racially-tinged feud with party leaders or face a fight for her political life.
In an interview with the Daily News, Meeks fumed over Ocasio-Cortez’s recent racial beef with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and pushed back against her left-wing allies at Justice Democrats for openly backing insurgent candidates trying to unseat members of the Congressional Black Caucus.
He also said the CBC can play the same game.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Primaries go two ways,” Meeks said when asked whether his wing of the party would consider challenging progressive members next year, including Ocasio-Cortez. “If someone picks a fight with somebody else, you fight back. That’s what my parents told me.”
Meeks stressed there weren’t any current plans to challenge Ocasio-Cortez, but left the door open: “If you get in the ring, expect that people are going to start throwing punches.”
