Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is making her signature outlandish statements for attention again, and this one’s a real whopper.
“Texas turning blue is inevitable,” she claimed. While IN TEXAS.
AOC was in the Lone Star State promoting two liberals on February 12, in an event that was covered by MySanAntonio.com.
According to the website, Ocasio-Cortez said “Here’s what’s exciting about Jessica’s race and Greg’s race, is that if we flip Texas, we flip the country…Texas turning blue is inevitable. The only question is when. We are going to fight for a living wage, we are going to make sure we unionize the hell out of this state… and we’re going to make sure that not one dime is made exploitatively across any worker, especially the undocumented.”
Senator Ted Cruz agrees with AOC, not that Texas IS turning blue, but that IF it did we should expect some disastrous consequences.
“If we lose Texas, it’s game over,” Cruz said. “I don’t believe Texas will turn blue but central to that is we’re going to have to work to communicate and turn people out.”
Back in 2020, Donald Trump defeated Joe Biden in Texas by about six points.
