Richard Goodstein: "I do think she's got to stick to her knitting a little bit, because you get 14,000 [votes], that doesn't mean there's this broad support in your district."

HARRIS FAULKNER (CO-HOST): Freshman Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reportedly is threatening political retribution against moderate members of her own party. The conflict is arising, we're told, over a House vote on Wednesday when more than two dozen Democrats voted with Republicans to add an amendment to a gun-control bill. The amendment requires gun sellers to notify ICE when an illegal immigrant tries to buy a gun. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, also known as AOC, reportedly scolded the 26 Democrats and broke ranks to support the amendment. Then the congresswoman reportedly went farther than that, telling the moderates that she was putting their names on a quote, "list," and threatening to help mount primary challenges to them in 2020.
RACHEL CAMPOS-DUFFY (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): I wonder why is Nancy -- just as a Democrat, why is Nancy Pelosi appeasing her? Because clearly -- this is how the GOP, by the way, lost their majority was, you know, the Freedom Caucus not making room for some of the moderates.
RICHARD GOODSTEIN (FORMER HILLARY CLINTON ADVISOR): Just a quick point, as of recently, she hadn't even opened a district office. So I, you know, I do think she's got to stick to her knitting a little bit, because you get 14,000 [votes], that doesn't mean there's this broad support in your district.
