McCarthy “the socialist wing of the party, they are the new power of the Democratic party”

Appearing in an interview with Axios, House majority leader Kevin McCarthy was asked ““So, you, this cycle, raised more money than any House Republican ever. What did you learn and how did you pull this off?”

He replied “The best way to raise money is just let Nancy Pelosi and AOC talk.”

Asked why people “respond so vociferously” to AOC McCarthy responded“Well, she runs the floor. That wing of the party, the socialist wing of the party, they are the new power of the Democratic party” more so than House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) “by far.”

He added “You watched on the floor. Legislation couldn’t be passed unless AOC agreed with it.”
