Since winning her primary, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been everywhere and quickly turned into a polarizing figure as she has advocated for socialist policies.
She’s constantly tweeting, retweeting and all over the news pitching her policy ideas that would more suitable Europe or Central America. She’s not a fan of the President Trump and has made it abundantly clear that she’s not really into the whole bipartisan thing.
On Thursday, the freshman congresswoman unveiled the “Green New Deal” her landmark bill that contains such ideas making air travel obsolete and “providing for economic security of the unwilling or unable.”
She’s become a lighting rod for criticism and may soon have a Republican opponent for 2020.
Brandon Straka, the founder of the WalkAway campaign, a movement that encourages people to leave the Democratic Party, recently announced his interest on Twitter.
I’m considering running against @AOC in 2020 in NY state’s 14th congressional district.
