Report: Democrats Expect Ocasio-Cortez to Primary Chuck Schumer

Breitbart:

High-level Democrats said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may primary Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) or Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), according to a report.

Top Democrats reportedly told Axios that they expect the progressive and freshman Rep. Ocasio-Cortez to primary Sen. Schumer in 2022 or Sen. Gillibrand in 2024. Gillibrand continues to campaign for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination, despite her low polling numbers across the country.

Ocasio-Cortez has made national fame for her primary victory against former Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY), who was expected to one day hold a high-ranking House leadership position such as House speaker or House majority leader.

The report arises as a Harris poll for Axios found a rising interest in socialism, especially among women. The survey found that 55 percent of women aged 18 to 54 approve of more progressive policies.

Corbin Trent, Ocasio-Cortez’s communications director, said the New York lawmaker wants to move the party towards more progressive issues, such as Medicare for All and the Green New Deal.

  1. My fantasy: La Loca successfully primaries Schumer and then loses the election. Both gone!

    (Another fantasy is a long, long line of pikes planted on the National Mall with the decapitated head of a politician impaled on each one. I know that would be bad – BAD! – but still…)

  2. Beautiful, we can see the replacement a conniving lowlife with a delusional moron.
    We can’t lose on that one.

  4. Good luck to her.
    Judging New York’s general trends, universal imbecility appears within reach.

    Seriously?

    Crying Chuckie?
    Burro-[rid]ing Gillibrand?
    Beer-tender Sandy Cortez?

    Throw em all in a bag, shake it up, turn it over – and NOTHING would fall out.

    Three of the biggest Zeros in the history of politics.
    Only in New York could the electorate be sooo fucking stupid to elect that trio of morons – AND HRC! CA is close, but at least their criminal class has a longer history of corruption and, outside of Pelosi and Waters, doesn’t appear so blatantly and vociferously retarded.

    But, HEY! People do stupid shit – New Yorkers especially so.

  5. Don’t worry Tony, polls showed Hillary winning by a landslide up to and
    into the evening on election night. I don’t know that too many people take them seriously any more.

    Most likely this one is just propaganda too.

  6. @TonyR; hi. I don’t the poll asked whether they wanted “socialism” but rather asked questions such as whether they wanted “universal healthcare”, a “living wage”, “tuition free education” etc. These are kind of motherhood questions which would almost guarantee a positive response of the responder wasn’t aware of the consequences. Having said that there were a few questions that concerned me such as a 66% support for a “state controlled economy” or a 57% support for “state controlled media and communications”.
    The GOP needs to start figuring out a communications plan that will educate these people on consequences of these programs or policies. It would also be interesting to read the whole poll as well as any weighting they did.

  7. I hope so! It would be about time we had a senator that could moonlight as a bartender during their down time since congress ain’t doin’ shit anyway!

    Too bad popcorn has soooooo many carbs.

  9. @svejk. pop your corn in plenty of olive oil and pass on the butter. Add your salt and you’re good to go. Pepper it too for variety.

  10. She is a target to be primaried in 2020 by her own district. To escape this humiliation, she will try to get a better paying job in the senate.
    She is such an eloquent spokesman, this transition should be a cinch!

  11. Subpoena Schumer. Let the world know he’s going to be asked a lot of questions about Hillary. Buh bye, Chuck!

  12. Pardon me, please, but allow me to reduce this farce to a tasteless analogy. The terminal velocity of a free falling human body is about 120 mph. A falling human body in “full delta” position will reach about 180 mph. A large petrified turd (any (d) candidate) will reach about 280 mph in free (what other kind is there for a (d)?) fall, faster than a Peregrine Falcon. But that petrified turd, unlike a falling human body, won’t even make a noticeable dent when it finally hits the ground. It’ll just make some nasty dust.

    Sorry – I just can’t take this shit anymore.

    That’s only because, now, women can have penises.

    Used to be percentages topped out at 100. It’s a brave new world. Brave and free.
