Trump-Supporting GOP Star From Jamaica Strikes Fear, Will Take On AOC In 2020
A Trump-supporting immigrant from Jamaica just struck fear in the heart of one Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
If there has ever been a Congresswoman who deserves to be a one-termer it is AOC. She has literally called Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump racists which is hard to square with reality.
The blanket denunciations are a problem for the left and made worse by a new crop of intolerable millennials who are rising in Dem politics.
Intolerable and ignorant on nearly every subject, they stomp their feet like toddlers throwing temper tantrums when they don’t get their way and in that way prove to America they are not ready for prime time.
Politics is about compromising and AOC and Omar want the rest of us to bend to their will and that will never happen.
From Fox News:
Scherie Murray, a New York businesswoman who immigrated from Jamaica as a child and is active in state Republican politics, is launching a campaign Wednesday for the congressional seat held by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Fox News has learned.
In a phone interview, Murray, 38, confirmed her intention to run for the New York congressional seat as a Republican.
“There is a crisis in Queens, and it’s called AOC,” Murray told Fox News. “And instead of focusing on us, she’s focusing on being famous. Mainly rolling back progress and authoring the job-killing Green New Deal and killing the Amazon New York deal.”
Murray, who was born in Jamaica and moved to the United States when she was 9, is officially launching her campaign Wednesday with an introductory video that takes sharp jabs at the 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez.
“Your representative in Washington chooses self-promotion over service, conflict over constituents, resistance over assistance,” Murray said in the video. “Queens and the Bronx needs someone who will create jobs instead of turning them away.”
Asked about Ocasio-Cortez’s brand of Democratic socialism, Murray said, “I think it’s far, far to the left and it is not connecting with everyday Americans.”
As for “Medicare-for-all,” which Ocasio-Cortez has embraced, the Republican said: “Medicare-for-all, I think a lot of people are happy with their current health insurance.” And on the Green New Deal, the left-wing proposal to address climate change pushed by Ocasio-Ortez, she said: “We know that it certainly will kill jobs.”
Asked during the interview if she considers herself a Trump supporter, she said “yes.” She said she is in the process of talking with national Republicans about her campaign, including South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, a prominent black Republican in Congress.
