“There is a crisis in Queens…”
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a new opponent in town, and it doesn’t look like she can deal the previous cards she’s been dealing.
Republican Scherie Murray, 38, a woman of color and an immigrant from Jamaica and she has a target on Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.
“Mainly rolling back progress and authoring the job-killing Green New Deal and killing the Amazon New York deal,” she stated.
“Your representative in Washington chooses self-promotion over service, conflict over constituents, resistance over assistance,” she continued.
“Queens and the Bronx needs someone who will create jobs instead of turning them away,” Murray striked at Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.
Murray was questioned about how she felt about the feud between The President and Ocasio-Cortez and her Squad. She explained that she wasn’t a fan.
“I think it’s disgusting, to be quite honest,” she stated. “I think we are missing the point of why we’re elected to public office: to legislate on policy, to deliver results to those kitchen table issues that are affecting everyday Americans.”
Is that how I would have worded it? No. Do I think the president is a racist? No.” she continued on about President Trump’s tweet.
“But I want to get back to the core of why we’re even talking about this – there is a crisis at our border,” she exclaimed.
“A Republican can win the district,” Murray said. “There is an absolute path to victory when you look at a general election campaign.”
Murray still insists that a Republican could win due to dissatisfaction with Ocasio-Cortez, even in a Democratic-controlled district.
