& # 39; AOC (All Out Crazy) wants to establish a new Soviet republic. I believe in capitalism about socialism. Her misplaced policy does not represent the district, & he said, according to the New York Post.
Valdes continued: & # 39; She is good in fundraising, but not in services. Asking around, most voters don't think that climate change is a number one issue. & # 39;
