A trio of progressive groups on Thursday endorsed a primary challenger to Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.), escalating a campaign of retribution against the man in charge of salvaging House Democrats’ majority in November.

Suzanne Berger, the chair of the Westchester County Democratic Committee, said the groups “represent a very, very insignificant number of voters in the district,” adding that Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement is a “net loss” for Biaggi given the moderate views of voters in the district.
