Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, meanwhile, has declared she will raise her new dog as "a community pup", noting on Twitter that she hoped to train the little guy to come to work, "enjoy townhalls" and ride Amtrak when he commutes from NY to the nation's capital.

While Ocasio-Cortez's followers fawned over the Frenchie's cuteness, Newkirk was not pleased in the least.
"I give quite a bit to fellow Dems - we've fundraised over $300,000 for others (more than my "dues"), w/ over 50% going to swing seats", she tweeted.
December was Ocasio-Cortez's strongest month to date, with 120,000 contributions received and an average donation about $16.50. That is exactly what the 185,000 people that donated to this campaign are part of: "a movement", said Corbin Trent, spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez. "How do my Republican friends want the American people, their constituents, and history to remember them?"

Blackwell went on to say that Ocasio-Cortez's 2019 Q3 fundraising haul exceeded every other House Democrat, and that she has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to support Democratic incumbents.
"That's always up to individual members so I guess I don't think about it one way or another. I can choose not to fund that kind of exclusion".
