Outside the media love-in for Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?
She has reason to worry…
Several political groups are after her….
The new House member’s support of stopping Amazon from coming to the area close to her district pissed a LOT of locals….
They will only be too happy to see her lose her job….
Her beating old-time Democratic boss Crowley , and cowing about it has earned her no friends among the state level Democrats who will draw up the new House districts…New York will lose one US House seat….Hmmm?
Oh, and Ocasio-Cortez has backed left leaning candidates that would run against the establishment lawmakers that will decide if she has a district left…
She has a black Republican woman already lined up to run against here also….
This week we have some talking about AOC running for President?
REP. ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ is prepared for the possibility that Democrats in New York could redraw her district after the 2020 election, she told The Intercept in an interview.
Following the 2020 census, every state will draw new district boundaries to reflect changes in the population, the political implications of which will stretch for at least the next decade. In 2014, New York approved a constitutional amendment establishing a nonpartisan redistricting commission, which is set to take over the redistricting process starting in 2020. The 10-member commission, meant to be independent from the legislature, is made up of individuals selected by leaders from the state Senate and Assembly, and the original eight members pick two additional members.
But Ocasio-Cortez’s most determined adversaries are not partisan Republicans, but Democrats who say that she has been a disruptive influence. The Hill recently reported that at least one member of Congress has been urging New York party leaders to recruit a Democratic primary challenger to Ocasio-Cortez. But the news led to a surge of donations to Ocasio-Cortez, suggesting that a more efficient means of ousting her might be simply to eliminate her district….
