BREAKING: AOC is in Big Trouble

By

It’s an unfortunate reality that both Republicans and Democrats had come to loathe.

As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi explained recently, “glass of water would win with a ‘D’ next to its name in” the New York district that elected Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez to Congress.

The remark was a clear swipe at AOC, but also a lament that the radical freshman lawmaker is likely in Congress to stay.

Well, Pelosi, and the rest of the country, might be able to breathe a little easier come the 2020 election.

The New York Post reports:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s surging national profile has inspired a trio of Republican opponents from her home district — along with a multimillionaire mystery donor who could help close the gap in her foes’ long-shot race against her.

Just three months after taking office, the Democratic socialist congresswoman’s challengers include an Egyptian American journalist, who has already tossed her hat in the ring, and an NYPD cop-turned-high school civics teacher and conservative talk radio producer, both of whom are seriously exploring a run against her.

It’s still a tough district for a Republican to win, but with enough money behind them, these candidates could have a shot.
