In a statement to Fox News, WFP senior director Kumar Rao said the party wants to unseat Democrats the organization sees as traitors for collaborating with GOP members. He claimed the group had already pushed the moderates out of the Independent Democratic Conference, which allowed progressives to make the wealthy pay higher taxes and provide more funding to schools.
Democrats already hold a large majority of the seats in the New York assembly, but the WFP, with the help of AOC, hopes to fill it with people from the far Left. The candidates the representative is throwing her support behind, which she calls the “We Can’t Wait Slate,” include a democratic socialist, abortion rights advocate, civil rights leader, climate organizer, and other activists.
