Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez often boasts about how she’s the future of the Democratic Party.
But the New York socialist lawmaker just got rocked with 7 pieces of horrific news that could result in her only serving one term in office.
Seven is the current number of Republican candidates who are lining up to take on Ocasio-Cortez.
While she has dominated media coverage since becoming a member of Congress back in January, AOC’s chances of winning re-election in 2020 have made her vulnerable.
Several of the candidates who will duke it out in the Republican primary spoke to Politico — and they are all excited about trying to make Ocasio-Cortez a one-term politician.
Scherie Murray, a Jamaican immigrant, announced last month that she’s joining the Republican primary and eager to take on AOC.
“Twenty-five thousand jobs were ousted,” Murray told Politico. “We should be encouraging businesses to come into the state, versus pushing them out.”
Others echoed a similar message.
“She’s fired everyone up,” Rey Solano, one of the Republican 2020 challengers, said. “She’s really annoyed a lot of people.”
“The standard-bearer of socialism in America is in [Congressional District 14]. If you’re going to stop the spread of socialism, and especially the encroachment of socialism throughout the outer boroughs, you have to stop her,” said Ruth Papazian, another potential Republican candidate.
Ocasio-Cortez’s own constituents also appear to be fed up with her behavior and antics.
Federal Election Commission data reveals that almost no one from Ocasio-Cortez’s district is donating to her re-election campaign.
Over 99 percent of AOC’s reported contributors to her re-election campaign in the first half of 2019 came from people who do not live in her congressional district.
Just 10 individuals living in her district in the first half of 2019.
If her own constituents aren’t donating to AOC, that’s a big problem because it may result in many not voting for her reelection.
As crazy as it may seem, this isn’t the only bombshell news that could result in Ocasio-Cortez only serving one term in office.
Several members of AOC’s staff are abandoning ship and getting out while they still can — including two top officials who played a big role in helping her get elected last fall.
Her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti and her communications director, Corbin Trent, are both resigning to “pursue other opportunities.”
While the liberal media is brushing this off as no big deal, Chakrabarti’s departure may not be a coincidence.
In recent months, AOC and Chakrabarti have found themselves in legal trouble for violating ethics rules.
On top of that, Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti “could be facing jail time” if their control over Justice Democrats, a far-left PAC, was intentionally hidden.
Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti “obtained majority control of Justice Democrats PAC in December 2017, according to archived copies of the group’s website, and the two appear to retain their control of the group.”
Former FEC commissioner Brad Smith said that if “a complaint were filed, I would think it would trigger a serious investigation,” adding that both Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti “could be facing jail time.”
“At minimum, there’s a lot of smoke there, and if there are really only three board members and she and [Chakrabarti] are two of them, sure looks like you can see the blaze. I don’t really see any way out of it,” Smith said.
Around that same time, it was also reported that Chakrabarti allegedly funneled over $1 million in political contributions to his private business.
With all of this considered, AOC’s political future could be in serious jeopardy.
