Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) just got sworn into office a few months ago, yet her competition is already hoping to show her the door. The Democrat’s most likely Republican opponents so far include a female Egyptian-American journalist and an NYPD cop turned teacher. In addition to more competitive biographies than bartending, they could potentially have a multimillionaire mystery donor. According to Bronx Republican Chairman Mike Rendino, a megabucks donor who is “worth over $200 million” is hell-bent on replacing Ocasio-Cortez in the next round of elections. Though that will be an uphill battle in the heavily Democratic district, it’ll be fun watching her spend Democratic Party cash to defend against slam dunk attacks.
Here’s more from New York Post…
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s surging national profile has inspired a trio of Republican opponents from her home district — along with a multimillionaire mystery donor who could help close the gap in her foes’ long-shot race against her.
Just three months after taking office, the Democratic socialist congresswoman’s challengers include an Egyptian American journalist, who has already tossed her hat in the ring, and an NYPD cop-turned-high-school-civics teacher and conservative talk-radio producer, both of whom are seriously exploring a run against her.
And the fledgling challengers could get help from a wealthy New Yorker committed to backing an Ocasio-Cortez opponent, a GOP big said.
