WATCH: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims this will happen if we don’t address climate change
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may think she’s the BOSS – but her colleagues miiiiight not agree with her.
Five freshman Democratic women in the House have made it clear that Ocasio-Cortez is not running the party and didn’t have to win a tough election like they did last November.
At an event to tout their formation of a joint fundraising committee to tap each other’s donors (and hopefully bring in more), the five, all with military or intelligence backgrounds, never mentioned New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez by name.
But the message from Reps. Elaine Luria and Abigail Spanberger of Virginia, Elissa Slotkin of Michigan, Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey and Chrissy Houlahan of Pennsylvania was clear: Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t represent them, and she’s not the one who’s going to help Democrats maintain their majority.
If ANYTHING, Ocasio Cortez is going to LOSE this for them. She’s literally a caricature of everything wrong with the left.
“There’s been an overwhelming focus on a small number of members in our caucus who did not flip seats, who did not help win the House, who are doing what is right for their districts, but who don’t represent our districts, or at least my district,” Slotkin said at a Friday breakfast with a small group of reporters.
All five flipped seats previously held by Republicans last fall, helping Democrats retake the House. Now they’re banding together to help each other fundraise to hold on to those seats in 2020.
And they’re ABSOLUTELY right. Do you think AOC has the slightest idea how to flip a seat? She literally won one of the most liberal districts in the NATION. As even Pelosi admitted, even “a glass of water” with a D by its name could have won her home turf.
But here she is, acting like she’s the future of her party.
If SHE is the future of the Democrats, then they are ROYALLY screwed.
