Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just got some really bad news about her upcoming reelection bid.
Now that AOC has turned Nancy Pelosi into her personal footstool, there is no way that Dems will follow through with threats to primary her next summer.
But she just got an opponent who has a big chance of knocking her off.
Businesswoman Scherie Murray, a Trump-supporting woman of color who also happens to be an immigrant threw her hat into the ring and is the nation’s best hope of ousting Ocasio-Cortez from the halls of power.
Her campaign message: ‘There is a crisis in Queens, and it’s called AOC’ and the first ad isn’t pulling any punches on the divisive Twitter goddess and the callous neglect of her constituents.
You deserve someone who will fight for you, not fight for the limelight. Someone who will build bridges, not burn them down. Join me, let’s #unitethefight, & build bridges together. https://t.co/vrfRk69hiN #NY14

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.
Boy does the ad ever take sharp jabs at AOC and she isn’t going to be happy.
Even though New York’s 14th congressional district is heavily Democratic, folks have to still be smarting over the former bartender’s role in screwing them out of thousands of well-paying jobs when she killed the deal for Amazon to open a second headquarters in the Big Apple.
Normally a Republican would have almost zero chance of winning in this district but Murray is the perfect candidate to nullify the magical talisman of racism wielded by AOC’s squad and may be just the woman to capitalize on local resentment over the celebrity job killer.
The 29-year-old bomb-thrower who has amassed a disproportionate amount of power in such a short time has yet to respond or bark out orders to her three partners but rest assured that it’s coming.
However, Murray’s ad is so well done so as to capitalize on Ocasio-Cortez’s worst characteristics that it may prove to be remarkedly successful with those voters who sent her to Washington only to soon realize that she didn’t give a rat’s ass about them but only in promoting herself.
There could be a price to pay come next November.
