Republican lawmaker announces challenge to Ocasio-Cortez in 2020

She may be one of social media’s most active politicians, but that doesn’t mean that she’s living on Easy Street.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is known for her brash and stupefying statements, often disseminated through the lens of social media.  Her constant, carte blanche “resistance” to President Trump has garnered her a rabid fanbase of radical leftists, antifa types, who will stop at nothing in their quest to delegitimize President Trump.

And while AOC spins and sputters her way through the news cycle, quietly, off in the wings, a challenger appears.

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.

Her angle is very apparent.

“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.

Ocasio-Cortez’s election to Congress wasn’t surprising to many, with even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying that an inanimate object with a “D” stamped on it would get elected in that district.

Given AOC’s spectacular failures on Capitol Hill, maybe that “D” is no longer a prerequisite.
