AOC Is Getting a GOP Challenger

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may be enjoying the limelight as a member of Congress, but there’s increasing dissatisfaction with the democratic socialist in her district, which is opening the door to challengers.


The latest to say they're taking on AOC is Scherie Murray, a Republican immigrant from Jamaica who’s active in state politics.

“There is a crisis in Queens, and it’s called AOC,” Murray told “And instead of focusing on us, she’s focusing on being famous. Mainly rolling back progress and authoring the job-killing Green New Deal and killing the Amazon New York deal.”

The New York businesswoman officially launched her campaign for the congressional seat on Wednesday with a video titled “Bridges” that emphasizes her strengths in building relationships in the community and targets AOC as someone more focused on political stardom.

“Your representative in Washington chooses self-promotion over service, conflict over constituents, resistance over assistance," Murray says in the video. "Queens and the Bronx needs someone who will create jobs instead of turning them away."


She adds: “You deserve someone fighting for you, not fighting for the limelight.”

A number of Republicans have already filed to run for the seat, including “former police officer John Cummings, medical journalist Ruth Papazian, construction contractor Miguel Hernandez and entrepreneur Antoine Tucker,” according to

Any Republican will face long odds at winning, however, as New York’s 14th congressional district is solidly blue.

Murray is confident nevertheless.

“A Republican can win the district,” she told “There is an absolute path to victory when you look at a general election campaign.”
