Democratic representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez plans to visit Kentucky in the coming months, despite the fact that he was uninvited by one of the congressional republican congressmen.
Regardless of the faintness, AOC spokeswoman Corbin Trent claims that other Kentucky politicians have asked the New York representative for a stopover in the state of Bluegrass – and it is a request she will make.
& # 39; Fortunately, we still have open borders with Kentucky, we are free to travel there, & # 39; Trent told CNN. & # 39; We hope to visit and have a town hall, listen to concerns of workers in Kentucky. & # 39;
A precise date has not yet been set for the controversial outing, but the 29-year-old wants to settle again with fellow delegate Andy Barr, just like last month in a fiery mood. Hearing of House Financial Services Committee.
Democratic representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is planning to visit Kentucky, despite the fact that he was not invited last week
One of Kentucky & # 39; s Congressional Representatives, Andy Barr (above), told AOC to apologize for showing a & # 39; lack of courtesy & # 39; towards Dan Crenshaw, when she ridiculed him online for scouting Ilhan Omar
After the uplifting speech by AOC that her Green New Deal is not an & # 39; elitist issue & # 39; was only a & # 39; quality of life issue & # 39 ;, Barr bit back on the proposal and stressed that the consequences of the arrangement would leave thousands of his voters without money and without work.
& # 39; I want to invite the gentleman to come to eastern Kentucky where thousands of miners no longer have a salary & # 39 ;, he suggested. & # 39; I invite her to go to the underground with me and get to know the men and women who are doing heroic work to drive the American economy. & # 39;
But, remarkably enough, AOC answered unperturbedly that they were & # 39; happy & # 39; and added that she calls for the full financing of & # 39; miners' pensions in West Virginia and throughout Appalachia because we want a fair transition to ensure that we invest in jobs across those parts of the country . & # 39;
Three weeks later, however, Barr seemed to withdraw the offer last week after a spit between Ocasio-Cortez and Texas Rep. Then Crenshaw.
The couple had a hard time in a war of words on social media after Crenshaw had publicly criticized Ilhan Omar for comments she made last month about 9/11.
Crenshaw was the first high-profile republican to have Omar & # 39; s notorious & # 39; s some people did something & # 39; rejected the speech, it & # 39; incredible & # 39; and a brutal attempt to suppress the tragedy.

Jumping to the defense of her co-lecturer, AOC noted that Crenshaw was a hypocrite on Twitter because he was not co-financing for the Compensation Fund for Victims of September 11, 2001 and urged him to do something about domestic terrorism.
The harsh words spurred a conservative attack on Omar that had been brewing for several weeks.
Jumping to the defense of her co-lecturer, AOC noticed that Crenshaw was a hypocrite on Twitter because he was not co-financing the September 11, 2001 Compensation Fund for Victims and called on him to & # 39; something & # 39; domestic terrorism.
& # 39; You refuse to contribute to the Compensation Fund of the 9/11 Victim, but you have the guts to harbor resentment towards Ilhan with fully out-of-context quotes & # 39 ;, read her tweet.
& # 39; In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind almost ALL US domestic terrorist murders. Why don't you do something about it? & # 39;
Crenshaw, a former naval seal who lost his eye in fighting insurgents in Afghanistan, never responded to the message and later explained to Fox News that he thought it was & # 39; almost not worth responding & # 39 ;
However, in a letter, Barr ordered AOC to apologize to the veteran, accusing her of demonstrating a & # 39; lack of courtesy & # 39; and urged her to withdraw her statement & # 39; prior to a visit to Kentucky & # 39 ;.
AOC maintains that it has no intention of apologizing, even though Barr is publicly publishing a letter urging her to do so before visiting Kentucky.
Majority Senate Leader Mitch McConnell refused to consider the feud, but insisted that AOC visit Kentucky & # 39; interesting & # 39; would be
Ocasio-Cortez maintains that it has no intention of apologizing and accepted Barr's letter as a sign that the GOP were afraid of its visit to the state favored by the Republican party.
& # 39; GOP is startled by the neighborhood, their voters will realize that I am fighting harder for their health care than their own representatives & # 39 ;, AOC thought in a tweet.
She later added that she had invited Barr to a New York City Hall with MSNBC, but Barr refused to watch basketball games at the University of Kentucky instead, she claimed.
When questioned about the distance during a press conference on Thursday, Major Critity leader Mitch McConnell refused to aggravate the fight between AOC and Barr.
& # 39; It's not up to me, I didn't unsubscribe from an invitation & # 39 ;, he said. "[But] It will be interesting if she does indeed come. & # 39;
