Summary

Democrats took control of the House from President Donald Trump’s fellow Republicans in January thanks in part to party moderates who won seats formerly held by Republicans in November’s midterm elections. “It’s OK to vote your district,” said Representative James Clyburn, a member of the House Democratic leadership who, like Cunningham, represents a South Carolina district. We’ve got varied backgrounds and experiences that we have to take into account.” Ocasio-Cortez’s communications director, Corbin Trent, said the congresswoman believes Democrats who have broken with the party on such votes “are putting themselves on a list for Republicans, to divide the party.” At a closed-door party meeting on Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez, who describes herself as a “democratic socialist,” said Democrats who voted for the Republican gun amendment had put her in a difficult spot because the measure endangered some in her community, Trent said.
