Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the biggest star in the Democrat Party.
But her time in the spotlight is about to come to an end.
That’s because Ocasio-Cortez’s career might be about to end for one reason no one could believe.
Ocasio-Cortez rocketed to stardom when she won an upset primary bid over the number four ranking House Democrat.
Since her victory, Ocasio-Cortez’s embrace of socialism and her social media prowess yanked the Democrat Party far to the left on issues like immigration and so-called “global warming.”
Ocasio-Cortez stated that if Democrats don’t adopt her socialist ideology she will recruit primary challengers against her opposition.
This worries some Democrats who now want to turn the tables against her in 2020.
The Hill reports:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has infuriated colleagues by aligning with a progressive outside group that’s threatening to primary entrenched Democrats. Now some of those lawmakers are turning the tables on her and are discussing recruiting a primary challenger to run against the social media sensation.
At least one House Democrat has been privately urging members of the New York delegation to recruit a local politician from the Bronx or Queens to challenge Ocasio-Cortez.
“What I have recommended to the New York delegation is that you find her a primary opponent and make her a one-term congressperson,” the Democratic lawmaker, who requested anonymity, told The Hill. “You’ve got numerous council people and state legislators who’ve been waiting 20 years for that seat. I’m sure they can find numerous people who want that seat in that district.”
Democrats are eyeing everything through a 2020 prism.
Ocasio-Cortez is popular and candidates react to her every tweet and policy pronouncement.
Top Democrats are worried the 2020 nominee will eventually be forced to adopt Ocasio-Cortez’s platform of openly bragging about turning America into Venezuela.
They know if the American people see how radical their agenda really is, Donald Trump will be a shoe-in for re-election.
Democrats don’t really want to get rid of Ocasio-Cortez, they just want her to tone down her act before socialism is the defining characteristic of the Democrat Party Presidential nominee in 2020.
