AOC warned against challenging Senate Dem leader Chuck Schumer

There’s currently widespread speculation that there’s a chance that firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) will mount a primary challenge against Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in the 2022 election.

According to the New York Post, the 31-year-old lawmaker was recently essentially ordered to stand down by the head of New York’s Democratic party, Jay Jacobs, who argued that there’s really no need for Ocasio-Cortez to wage that kind of battle. 

“I think it would be a primary driven by ambition more than by need,” Jacobs said.  “She has a constituency that admires her and supports her, and they’re in her community, and I think it would be a loss for them if she were to do that.”

Contrary to what many believe, Jacobs would handily beat her in a Senate primary, according to Jacobs. President Donald Trump and some others have said otherwise, claiming that Ocasio-Cortez would take out the 70-year-old Democrat without much of an issue.

Though speculation has raged for months over her ambition to make a move to the upper chamber, she hasn’t done much — if anything — to douse those rumors. When recently asked about the possibility that she would primary Schumer in 2022, she simply responded, “I don’t’ know.”

The young lawmaker even told Vanity Fair in October that she’s unsure of her future in House politics. “I don’t know if I’m really going to be staying in the House forever,” she said, raising questions as to what her political future holds.

“I don’t want to aspire to a quote-unquote higher position just for the sake of that title or just for the sake of having a different or higher position. I truly make an assessment to see if I can be more effective,” Ocasio-Cortez told Vanity Fair.

While the country will have to wait a few years to see if she really goes through with it, one thing is clear: Young, radical progressive lawmakers have already made their mark on Capitol Hill and it appears as if they have no plans on stopping that progress.

        1. They are BOTH COMMUNISTS ! Chuck joined the communist party back in the 70’s.. he should get along just fine with that idiot.

    1. Best idea anyone could come up with-congrats! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could get Piglosy completely out of government. Good Grief! She is 809 years old and who keeps working at that age unless they are greedy. However, don’t replace her with someone like Cortez. That would be bad to worse.

      I’m still praying Trump gets his 4 more years and the Dems don’t get away with all the election fraud they set up. Biden even told us ahead of time that they had it set up. How stupid is that? I have the picture of him saying that and I watched him say it. Wish I could post picture here but can’t. He says he has the most extensive voter fraud set up ever in the U.S.

      1. And how do you know there was a fraudulent election because Trump said so? Get real Trump is the biggest liar and cheat that has ever been. It’s because of trump we are in the shape we’re in to begin with. Do you like going hungry or are you rich? Any other problem you want to blame on Biden ?

        1. Debra, when you have more votes cast than there are people to vote in a county then that is a problem. Common sense tells one that. No one has to be a genius to figure that one out. I suggest you look at the numbers.

        2. Deborah….Before you accuse President Trump of being a liar, you had better take a look at HIDEN BIDEN’s history of lying about his standing in his college days, people he has met and his plagiarizing of several speeches. As for the voting, if Biden really had(as) the most votes, then he is President, but first you need to see how things are shaping up in PA, MI and WI where they, the local officials are finding way more votes than there are registered voters. PA has found approx. 200,000 more votes than voters. So if you want to talk about LIARS, lets take a look that the DIMS that were on the election committees and see who the real LIARS, CROOKS AND THIEVES ARE!

        3. How do YOU know there wasn’t ? Because YOUR PARTY said so ?!! Keep watching CNN and drinking the yummy look-aid , thinking for yourself is wayyy beyond your pay grade !

      2. I can’t understand why all the crooks are not in jail and good people like the hair dresser in Texas were thrown in jail (even for one day). America is not what I came here for! All of the known crimenals : Hillary, Bill, Comes, Biden, Hunter, etc. etc…… are still working around enjoying their bounty! by the way, most are our money !

    2. She also got a dressing down when she was voted out of every plumb committee. She got a tiny 17% of the votes to sit on any desirable committee. So unlike when she started, this time she didn’t have any power to get what she wanted and no one in DC likes her.

  1. AOC is too stupid to be anything other than a bartender! Not trying to put down bartenders, but being in politics should be taken seriously and she is far from that!

  2. I wish people would put quotation marks around “progressive” when they write about her & similar. To call her progressive is a misstatement.

  3. She should never have been elected in the first place, and why anyone in their right mind would vote for her a second time, is mind boggling. You can’t fix stupid. The more we look at Congress, the more obvious it is.

    1. Phyllis, As was pointed out in the article, “she is loved by her constituents” (paraphrased) Considering that her base are young, they likely are of her mindset…..ignorant!!

    2. i think judge judy said that; “you can’t fix stupid.” i also think she wrote a book “Don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining” WE’D BETTER WIN GA SENATE!

  4. She hasn’t done anything to help out her constuants. She knocked them down instead. When she told Amazon they weren’t wanted, that should have sealed her fate, but guess there are too many in her district who cannot see the writing on the wall. She will take them down to satisfy her. Of course with Schumer in that same district for how many years?

  5. Everyone thought it would take a nuclear blast to get Joe Crawley out of his seat that he held for 20 years. She did it in the Primary.

  6. She has such a high opinion of herself and her ability to “rule”. I bet she does not heed Jacobs warning and then hopefully she will lose both of the positions. What is wrong with her constituents that they would vote for her to begin with. ? What has she done for the residents of NYC anyway other than lose thousands of jobs with Amazon.

    1. First of all, aoc is a LIAR ! Just about everything that comes out of her mouth is a lie!
      She and the bunch of them are nothing but communists! Including the stupid, so called preacher running for senate in Ga. as well as the Abrams idiot! WE Must win Ga Senate seats or we will loose our freedoms forever! Remember Schumer’s words; take Ga and change the world! these liberals are interested in two things for themselves; money and power and not interested in anything for the American people!

  7. A (Another) O (Onerous) C (Communist) doesn’t have the brains to pour piss out of a boot, but then, neither does Chucky “Cheese” Tumor, so who cares who wins? Maybe they’ll eat each other, then America wins!

    1. yep and she is sooo into herself! thinks everyone wants to see her ugly face and videos on tv! i fast forward anytime she is on one of my shows,(you can do that if you record them and don’t start watching it right on time!) China is planning to OWN us! Make no mistake, and the biden family is just one family China owns plus big tech etc.. joe won’t be able to sneeze without their permission! his whole family is compromised! That alone should demand he get out and harris…….don’t get me started on her!

  8. It would be better to kick out both: – Schumer and AOC, plus Pelosi. There would be less noise and more work results
