Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just gave Nancy Pelosi the worst possible news for 2020
Nancy Pelosi’s agenda as Speaker of the House may be dead on arrival.
The Democratic Party has never been more divided and a new Democrat comes out every day saying they won’t support Pelosi.
And now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just put Nancy Pelosi’s career on life support.
It’s no secret that the radical left despises Nancy Pelosi.
Some Democrats want new leadership.
They don’t think Pelosi is socialist enough.
Now, Ocasio-Cortez and other Democratic-Socialists are backing efforts to primary incumbent Democrats in 2020.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez backed an effort Saturday by a group called the Justice Democrats, which opposes “Democratic incumbents who are demographically and ideologically out-of-touch with their districts.”
The Justice Democrats helped Ocasio-Cortez oust veteran Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) in a primary in New York’s 14th congressional district earlier this year.
Since winning her election Nov. 6, Ocasio-Cortez has continued to challenge the Democratic Party leadership, joining a sit-in protest in the office of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) over climate change policy.
Though she has not yet taken office, Ocasio-Cortez is already committing to replacing many of her colleagues — apparently on the basis of race and ideology.
If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez manages to successfully primary Pelosi’s cronies in Congress, it could put an end to her career.
Other Democrats are more concerned about their 2020 ambitions rather than legislative accomplishments.
They know their number one priority during the current session is to block Trump’s America First agenda at all costs.
But Nancy Pelosi will no doubt have tricks up her sleeve to save her career and what is left of her “legacy.”
