AOC Risks Losing to Republicans in 2020

Peyton Gouzien | @PGouzien

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s unfavorability among voters in her own district has gone up to 50.88%. The poll, done by the “Stop AOC” PAC, shows startling results for AOC’s re-election bid. 33.4% of voters in her district pledged to oppose her. Additionally, only 13.3% of voters said they wouldn’t oppose her, with the rest unsure.

Low polling is attributed to the New York Amazon deal that AOC opposed. The deal never came to fruition due to her opposition. Thanks to polling, it shows that her actions on this deal could come to haunt her when 2020 rolls around. She already has a Republican challenger in Rich Valdes, an associate producer of the Mark Levin Show. Valdez plans to run against AOC in 2020. However, he is not alone in the pledge to oppose AOC as another Republican seeks her seat. Bronx Republican and Medical Journalist, Ruth Papazian, pledged back in March to run against AOC. Papazian has already challenged the congresswoman to debate, of which no response has been made. Additionally, Scherie Murray, a Jamaican immigrant and businesswoman, recently launched her bid to oust AOC.

Kamala Harris Is Not as Progressive as She Seems

It’s been over two weeks since the Democratic debates in Florida and the nation is still reeling. Attention has not come off the candidates’ wins, losses, and scandals for a single second. The puff pieces and local news health broadcasts have practically nowhere to go. A “winner” of the second Democratic debate was US Senator Kamala Harris. The media and her supporters praised her take-down of Joe Biden and her stellar performance on the evening of the debate. Harris’ supporters think of her as a perfect progressive candidate in support of all the standard and fringe left economic and social issues.
