New York Democrats Looking At Potential Challengers To Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

Modal Trigger

Fox News pundit Tomi Lahren came out swinging against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Thursday morning on "Fox & Friends", because the right just loves to hate the 29-year old Democratic Congresswoman from the Bronx and Queens. She accused "Republicans" of "faking videos and presenting them as real", which also was not true, after the Stuckey parody video.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not happy with Facebook, Google, and Microsoft: She recently slammed the tech giants for sponsoring a conference that promoted climate change denial.

Now, some of those Democrats are seeking to turn the tables on her.

[I] t's not just Black Caucus members she has rubbed the wrong way. Pelosi rejected calls by Ocasio-Cortez to create a select committee devoted to crafting the plan, with the power to pass legislation and subpoena officials.

"Considering she's more popular and well-known than some of the Democratic presidential contenders, I think whoever challenges her will lose by huge margins", Shahid said.

Maurizio Sarri: Maybe I Am Not Able To Motivate Players
Asked if his squad was good enough to finish in the top four, he said: "I think so, maybe we are not at the top of the table". It is unacceptable for Chelsea and we have to find the solutions'. "We spoke and in three days time we have another game".

Pingree says one of the reasons she and Ocasio-Cortez wrote this letter is that "climate change is clearly an all-hands-on-deck situation". This is especially true in NY, where there are any number of Democrats in the Bronx and Queens who might be willing to challenge her if they had the backing of those that Ocasio-Cortez seems intent on challenging herself.

When Hoover asked her to expound on those comments, the Ocasio-Cortez stammered and ended up admitting she is "not an expert" on the conflict. This sort of tax is appealing to those who look at ultra-wealthy people like, say, Jared Kushner, who manages to avoid paying any income tax at all because they can manipulate the numbers to technically have a negative income while their net worth keeps rising.

A group of newly elected far-left congresswomen want to slash funding to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the primary US agency tasked with border security. "That's what she said, so you gotta take her at her word until something changes".

"Democrats have to thread the needle between aggressive policies that will really make a difference and making sure rural and swing state members can embrace them", said Paul Bledsoe, who worked on climate change in the Clinton White House.

While there is no legislative text yet available for the Markey/Ocasio-Cortez proposal, the draft circulated by Ocasio-Cortez envisioned a sprawling government expansion that would dwarf FDR's New Deal.
