"Instead of governing, Republicans in Congress choose to cling to people like GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene who sought to form a white supremacist caucus and called Americans calling for police reform ‘domestic terrorists,'' DCCC spokesman Christ Taylor said in a statement to The Hill. 

The NRCC fired back in their own statement, accusing the DCCC of never missing a chance "to light money on fire." 

"Voters want nothing to do with Democrats’ toxic socialist agenda that will raise taxes, defund the police and open our borders," NRCCC spokesman Michael McAdams said.
