AOC Considers Primarying Chuck Schumer Next Year

During a recent interview with CNN New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t rule out the possibility of challenging New York Senator and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer next year. The progressive “Squad” member hasn’t ruled out the idea of running for higher office when faced with questions in the past but the lawmaker often keeps her answer vague in regard to the future of her political career.

According to The Daily Wire:

Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks during a CNN interview with Dana Bash that will air on Monday night. “I know it drives everybody nuts. But the way that I really feel about this, and the way that I really approach my politics and my political career is that I do not look at things and I do not set my course positionally,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

“I know there’s a lot of people who do not believe that. But I really — I can’t operate the way that I operate and do the things that I do in politics while trying to be aspiring to other things or calculating to other things,” she said in the interview.

Earlier this year, after President Joe Biden ruled out Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal to forgive $50,000 in federal student loan debt, the congresswoman hit back and said Schumer was on her side, as the New York Post reported back in February. Schumer has, in fact, been an advocate for mass student loan forgiveness, and even has a mask that reads “Cancel Student Debt.”

Ocasio-Cortez seemed to give a nod to Schumer’s progressive stances, telling CNN in the soon-to-air interview, “For what it’s worth, Senator Schumer and I have been working very closely on a lot of legislation and that, to me, is important.”

Could AOC be a worthwhile contender against the veteran lawmaker? We will have to see.

Please call your senators and tell them not to vote for the INFRASTRUCTURE bill.
It’s the green new deal, harmful for our country and us citizens.

Let’s see . . . which would be worse for NY? Schumer, the Sewer Rat, or AOC, the epitome of a Brainless Socialist Automaton.

The Wicked Witch of the West (Wackosi) will help her win a Senate seat to get rid of the pain in her ass, but she still has the rest of the Squad to deal with, unless we have a massive Red Wave, November, 2022. 😊

Surely, NY folks are smart enough not to make her a Senator?

The ones who cares the most are those filling out bogus mail-in-ballots to total more than AOC’s opponent, as what happened in November 2020!!!

As a Republican in another state Rhode Island this is good news. Cuomo is going and his personal issues don’t help. He’s gone just when at this point. Establishment Democrats will rally for Schumer but AOC has a following and should be well funded. She’s a woman and Hispanic which she will get support from them. Schumer support will come from the Establishment Democrats and Jewish Community. Catholics and Protestants who are traditional Democrats will probably back Schumer. Of course it is important not to generalize and politicians should not to take any group for granted and primaries are not participated in like general elections, so the Democratic primary should be more liberal inclined than the general election.

AOC – Another Offensive Commie would be well not to run for anything, although New Yorkers seem to vote in some strange characters. She is about as sharp as a marble and won’t be effective in any debates. She’s more of an instigator not a Senate leader.

I don’t care what office she holds or aspires to hold in the future. This ho shouldn’t be anywhere near Congress. Just speaks to what low lives her constituents are.
By the way, please call your Senators and tell them not to vote for the INFRASTRUCTURE BILL. IT’S A DISASTER FOR OUR COUNTRY.
IT’S THE GREEN NEW DEAL with 6% going to REAL INFRASTRUCTURE.

AOC should be more concerned about holding any position in government. A lot of seats are up for grabs in 2022 and I hope she doesn’t make the cut, any cut for that matter!
