Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez vocally pushed back against the notion that grassroots organizing alone can combat voter suppression, joining a growing chorus of progressive voices criticizing President Joe Biden's White House for not pushing forcefully enough for voting rights protections.

"Communities cannot 'out-organize' voter suppression when those they organize to elect won't protect the vote.& Even if they DO out-organize, the ground is being set to overturn results. The time to fight like hell for democracy is right now. We may not get another chance," Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter on Monday.

Ocasio-Cortez was responding to a New York Times report published Friday which detailed the tension between the Biden White House and civil rights activists who are sounding the alarm on GOP efforts in states to restrict voting and undermine the results of the 2020 election.
