Bummer: 2nd Republican To Challenge AOC For 2020

In reality, Republicans have, at best, a 2% shot at winning the seat in NY14. It is a purely safe seat for Democrats. But, it might cause Democrats to nominate another Democrat to primary her, especially with all the in-fighting between her, her squad, and Justice Democrats against Nancy Pelosi and the other Democrats

Second Republican announces plans to challenge Ocasio-Cortez in New York

Republican John Cummings on Friday announced plans to challenge Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) for her seat next year.

Cummings said in an interview with the New York Post that he was inspired to launch his own congressional bid by Ocasio-Cortez’s long shot run last year.

“But to just come from the outside and take somebody on is really difficult,” Cummings, a 59-year-old civics teacher and former police officer, told the Post.

Cummings is the second Republican to announce a challenge to Ocasio-Cortez, joining Ruth Papazian.

Regardless of who eventually wins the GOP’s congressional nomination, Ocasio-Cortez will enter the race with a huge advantage in a district that Hillary Clinton carried over President Trump by nearly 58 points in 2016.

Remember, though, AOC polls very badly in her district. What happens if one of these Republicans starts offering ideas that the people in NY14 like and gains traction? Meh, it almost doesn’t matter, AOC will get primaried. She’s caused too many problems in the Dem party.
