Appearing on MSNBC, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealed to America that she would be up for going to great lengths to make sure one of her Democrat coworkers was booted from Congress.
According to AOC, Senator Kyrsten Sinema has been far too opposed to Biden’s radical leftwing agenda, and therefore liberals need to take a long look at their options to remove her from her post, including sending a primary challenger at Synema.
AOC was asked by host Mehdi Hasan “If a Ruben Gallego challenged Synema in a primary or someone else, would you potentially consider supporting a primary challenger?”
Cortez’s response wasn’t surprising from an ideological point of view, anyone right of Vladimir Lenin isn’t good enough from Alexandria. But calling for your Democratic teammate’s job during the middle of Synema’s term is something that a person generally doesn’t do to their own party.
As we’ve learned, AOC isn’t like most people.
“If it came down to someone like Ruben Gallego and Kyrsten Sinema, I think that would be the easiest decision I would ever have to make. There is no comparison. This is a state that deserves to be represented by a strong Democrat that is allied with working families, and understands that we need to protect the rights of the marginalized, that understands that now is not a moment to stick up for corporations but rather stand up for working people. And we need someone who has more allegiance to the actual people of this country than special interests.”
