While Bustos hasn't showed signs that she will be reversing the policy, Pocan told Politico he believes they are still having an "open conversation" and "there’s more to come" with their conversation.

"Let's be clear. If this policy remains in place, it will mean that we will not allow new Ayanna Pressleys or AOCs to emerge. It's simply wrong," Khanna told the Intercept. "It's also hypocritical for a party that champions strong antitrust. The DCCC is acting as a monopoly by saying that anyone who does business with them can't do business with any competition. It's the classic antitrust violation and an unfair restraint on trade. Many progressives in Congress will fight until this rule is changed. We stand for reform in Congress and reform of the Democratic Party machinery to make sure they prioritize our voters and the grassroots."

Ocasio-Cortez, who is often referred to as AOC, has been very vocal about her opposition to the policy and has retweeted some of Khana's tweets against it. She also told reporters on Wednesday that "primaries are often the only way that under-represented and working class people are able to have a shot at pursuing elected office," referring to herself.

This isn't the first time that Riffle has been critical of the Democratic establishment. Last month, he took a shot at Democratic staffers looking to get cushy jobs as lobbyists instead of wanting to "burn" the political system down.
