Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), complained of being rejected by other members of the Democratic Party in an interview with the New York Times on Sept. 18.
“In many ways, I feel that I walk through that body [the House of Representatives] as a symbol of someone who shouldn’t be there and a threat to the way power is organized,” AOC said.
Ocasio-Cortez, 29, elected for the first time as a member of the legislative body about eight months ago is popular on social networks, but not so much in Congress itself, according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
The House Speaker referred to Ocasio-Cortez and the squad made up of Minnesota representative Ilhan Omar, Michigan representative Rashida Tlaib, and Massachusetts representative Ayanna Pressley, as having no followers.
“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they don’t have any following,” Nancy Pelosi said, according to Daily Caller.
Ocasio-Cortez accused the House Speaker of being “disrespectful” to the “newly elected women of color” in an interview with The Washington Post.
The results of a poll presented by Fox News indicate the intention of voters voting on Ocasio-Cortez, in the face of the next elections to be held in the United States in 2020.
The controversial leftist representative will have to struggle in the 2020 elections against the challenge posed to her by candidate Badrun Khan for New York’s 14th District.
Likewise, Khan said that in the Queen’s District she aspires to represent, “They are not looking for socialism,” and that she will give voters “Real Results… No empty promises,” according to Fox News.
