AOC’s GOP Challenger Says Her Policies Are ‘Not Connecting’ With Her Constituency

One of freshman firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s (D-N.Y.) 2020 challengers says the self-described democratic socialist’s policies are “not connecting” with the people in her constituency.

During a Monday interview on Fox Business’s “Trish Regan Primetime,” Republican congressional challenger Scherie Murray (R-N.Y.) was asked by the host to explain her claim that Ocasio-Cortez’s fame “has gone to her head.”

Murray — a businesswoman from New York City — said that the freshman Democrat’s policies are “far, far to the left” and blasted them as “not connecting” with the people in her district in New York.

She continued on to say that Ocasio-Cortez’s “notoriety on the public stage” was getting to her head before further bashing her policies as promoting more of a “conflict” in her district rather than “solutions.”

“The policies that we see now are far, far to the left. They’re not connecting with the constituency in Queens and the Bronx. And the notoriety on the public stage is more to AOC’s head, as we can see, where her policies are pushing more of a conflict versus solutions in the district. And that’s what we see coming from AOC.”

Murray also said that Ocasio-Cortez’s “rhetoric” as well as her role in “tanking” the deal between New York and Amazon and her widely-panned, signature nonbinding resolution the Green New Deal was not needed “for the state.”

“The rhetoric, the job-killing Green New Deal, tanking the Amazon deal in New York,” continued Murray. “This is all rhetoric we don’t need for the state.”

Murray announced her bid for Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional seat earlier this month.

As IJR Red previously reported, the Jamaica-born New York businesswoman became the third challenger to take on the freshman firebrand, proclaiming in her announcement video that there is a “crisis in Queens, and her name is AOC” while blasting Ocasio-Cortez as choosing “self-promotion over service, conflict over constituents, resistance over assistance.”

  1. Murray is right. AOC is Obtusely-Centered on herself, whether it’s her idiot utterances, moronic policies, or just embarrassing herself.

    Consider this: She had zero qualifications. She lied about being “from the block”. She dresses in designer fashions not one of her constituents can afford. She whines about not being able to pay for housing in DC (this person gets to vote on the budget?). She illegally gives her boyfriend a Congressional email, then hires him to do “something”.

    She quotes Nazi sympathizers. Her chief of staff wears tee shirts celebrating actual Nazis.

    Tell me again why, outside of idiot voters, she’s qualified to sit in one of the “three chambers of gov’t”.

  2. AOC is failing to represent her constituency in service to her personal ideology.

    Besides costing the tax base, jobs, etc. by sinking the Amazon deal I challenge anyone to quote a SINGLE time she’s mentioned either her district or serving her voters. Chirping crickets.

  3. I thought that AOC’s district was being done away with?

  4. I hope the New Yorkers will consider the grave error they made in voting for AOC and vote for the Party – GOP – that they have benefited from. AOC will continue heading off the left side of everything with her Marxist ideas of destroying the economy and the entire Planet. The House of Reps needs to be swept clean of the Commie Quad Squad and all the others who are against our Republic.
