Democratic Illinois Rep. Dan Lipinski fired back at Democratic New York Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over her Tuesday endorsement of his primary challenger.
Lipinski delivered a critical response after the New York Times went public with Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement of businesswoman Marie Newman, who ran against Lipinski previously and lost.
The article goes on to state the following:
Lipinski’s statement cited Newman’s support of Medicare for All and the termination of all other private health care options, as well as her approval of the Green New Deal, both of which he said were policies too extreme for the voters in his district.
Ocasio-Cortez quickly responded, saying, “This is a real quote from a Democrat representing a safe blue seat. Aggressive statements like these are so casually thrown from corporate candidates towards grassroots ones, yet they never get branded as ‘divisive,’ despite their rhetoric. We should ask ourselves why that is.”
Dan Lipinski responds to @AOC endorsing his primary opponent and it’s a doozy.
“Ms. Newman is an extreme candidate who is completely out of step with the voters of Illinois’ Third District who do not want to be represented by a fifth member of the ‘Squad.’” pic.twitter.com/zewNDe6CfP
