Default AOC Challenging Schumer or Gillibrand???

FM, have you been hearing about this recently?

AOC may challenge Chuck Schumer, Kirsten Gillibrand in upcoming Senate races: report

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, could be facing a major challenger in their next Senate races -- Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY.

Top Democrats suspect that the freshman congresswoman will primary either Schumer in 2022 or Gillibrand in 2024, according to a report from Axios, Gillibrand, who is currently running for president, just won reelection during the 2018 midterms after vowing she would serve her full six-year term.

If AOC runs against the two party powerhouses -- and wins -- it wouldn't be the first time she toppled a big-name Democrat after she defeated leading lawmaker Joe Crowley, who was the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus a member of Congress for nearly 20 years, during the New York primaries in 2018.

Since then, Ocasio-Cortez has become a household name and is leading the effort in promoting the Green New Deal in hopes of tackling climate change.

With massive support among progressives, the New York representative is seen as a kingmaker during the 2020 election and is weighing her options on who to back in the presidential race.Senators Bernie Sanders, I-VT, and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass, have so far received the highest praise from the self-described Democratic Socialist.

She has repeatedly blasted former Vice President Joe Biden, most recently for his previous support for the Hyde Amendment, which outlaws federal funding for abortions."If your pride is being a moderate centrist candidate, say that," Ocasio-Cortez said last week. "Say, 'I'm proud to be a centrist, I'm proud to be funded by Wall Street. I'm proud to not push as hard as I can on women's rights.' Say it, own it, be it, but don't come out here and say you're a progressive candidate, but at the same time not support repealing something as basic as the Hyde Amendment."

No, that's the first I heard about that. I did hear she made like Jesse Owens when confronted by her GOP rival in next years election challenging her in a debate regarding capitalism vs socialism.

Did you hear about Omar's "No means no" when AOC was challenged by former Rep. John Delaney, D-Md.to a debate on the same topic? To give Omar a break, I think she is personally upset she never got a chance to ever say no.

AOC is done I seriously don't see her being reelected to her seat. She won because what's his face duck debates and didn't take her seriously. She is too dumb to debate and has to duck. Her dumb comments will haunt her throughout next year's election season.

This election is turning out to be quite interesting on the Dem side for a lot of reasons. The media is stirring the Dem pot as usual and most Dems don't have the sense to realize that their pot stirring has nothing to do with advancing the Dem cause(s). Dem Presidential hopefuls are coming out of the woodwork but most aren't gaining traction. The media seems to be complicit in trying to take Biden out. Obama's prognosticating ability seems to be defective as usual and AOC is continuing in her campaign to dominate the Dem party with her foolishness which is burning a huge amount of bridges. Where are the bastions of liberal talking points on all of this? They seem strangely quiet for a change as if pondering how things are going to work out.

She knows she will not win her own seat again so she is looking for a new group of DEMS to dupe. My bet is this bimbo is back tending bar for tips after 2020.

And why not?

America took a community organizer from Chicago, and his husband. With only 3 years as a Senator, where he ONLY voted Present. And made him President.

I can TOTALLY see how that can make her feel qualified.

Keeping in mind that she IS the speaker of the house.
