Scherie Murray launched a Republican campaign in the Wednesay district of Alexandria Ocasi-Cortez and published a scathng video of her short time in Congress, but in 2018 Ocasio-Cortez praised it.
The Republican candidate in the 14th district of New York praised Ocasio-Cortez as she pushed out ten-year-old Democrat Joe Crowley in the 2018 mid-term elections and said the district was ready for new leadership.
& # 39; Congratulations Alexandria, & # 39; she tweeted on June 26, 2018. & # 39; #Queens is moving in a new direction and it's time for new leadership. #Yes. & # 39;
A little over a year later, the Jamaican-American changed its tone completely and had some choice words for the first-year representative.
Scherie Murray, who set up a Republican campaign against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in 2020, once praised her for starting a trend of new leadership in the 14th district of New York
Murray said on June 28, 2018 that Ocasio-Cortez would help the district in a better & # 39; direction & # 39; to lead with & # 39; new leadership & # 39;
Murray claimed that Ocasio-Cortez is more interested in gaining fame for himself than helping voters in Queens and The Bronx.
& # 39; Your representative in Washington opts for self-promotion about service, voter conflict, opposition to help & # 39 ;, said Murray in the video, which was uploaded on Tuesday.
& # 39; You deserve someone who fights for you, not fighting for the spotlight, & # 39; she continued.
In an interview with Fox News, Murray confirmed her intention to work as a Republican against the progressive Ocasio-Cortez in 2020.
The 38-year-old businesswoman from New York is active in Republican politics in the state, and used to serve as a government official of the Republican Party of the state of New York.
Murray, who emigrated to the United States at the age of nine, announced her campaign for Ocasio-Cortez's home seat on Wednesday – just over a year after honoring the first congress women's victory
The New York businesswoman released an introductory video and confirmed her intention with Fox News that she will compete in the Republican primary take-over over Ocasio-Cortez in 2020
& # 39; There is a crisis in Queens, and it is called AOC, & # 39; Murray said Fox news. & # 39; And instead of focusing on us, she focuses on celebrity. Especially reversing the progress and writing the groundbreaking Green New Deal and killing the deal with Amazon New York. & # 39;
One of the biggest things that Ocasio-Cortez has come under attack in its home state is to push away incentives for Amazon to build part of its second headquarters in its district – a move that would have brought thousands of jobs and would have stimulated the economy.
On Wednesday, Murray will be the fifth Republican day to take on Ocasio-Cortez in the next election.
Former police officer John Cummings, journalist Ruth Papazian, building contractor Miguel Hernandez and entrepreneur Antonine Tucker have all reported themselves as republicans running to the seat of New York's 14th district.
Ocasio-Cortez was a perpetrator of the dark horse during the 2018 mid-term elections. In an unlikely turnaround of events, she was able to destroy ten-year-old Joe Crowley, who was also the Democratic caucus president, the House's fifth-highest leadership position for the party.
& # 39; You deserve someone who fights for you, doesn't fight for the spotlight & # 39 ;, said the Jamaican-American about Ocasio-Cortez, claiming that the congresswoman is more focused on being & # 39; famous & # 39; then do what is best for the voters
Ocasio-Cortez often attracts national attention with its go-against-the-flow character and progressive agenda. She recently disagreed with House leadership and establishment Democrats
It is highly unlikely that a Republican will win in the deep blue area of New York City.
In 2016, 75.4 percent of voters in Queens voted for Hillary Clinton and 88.5 percent voted for Clinton in The Bronx.
Ocasio-Cortez still does not seem to have a democratic primary challenge for the time being, which means that it will again achieve a victory in 2020.
However, there are rumors that more modestly established Democrats can support a challenger that is less progressive and less controversial.
The 29-year-old legislator contributed to a split in the Democratic Party – especially when she and three other first-year congress women were the only ones who voted against a spending bill against the border.
Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley all voted against the $ 4 billion republican border bill, which landlord Nancy Pelosi helped get through the house when she heard reports of the horrific circumstances in which migrants were confronted in detention facilities at the border.
With the launch of its campaign on Wednesday, Murray becomes the fifth Republican to take on Ocasio-Cortez next year. Former police officer John Cummings (left), journalist Ruth Papazian (right), building contractor Miguel Hernandez and entrepreneur Antonine Tucker have all applied to enter the Republican primary
There is not a single democrat that Ocasio-Cortez wants to take on, and it is as if she has a smooth road to victory in 2020. A large majority of its district is blue with more than 88% of the votes in The Bronx for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and more than 75% in Queens
Murray, a 38-year-old mother, also criticized Ocasio-Cortez for killing jobs and looking for a raise for herself instead of helping people in her district with their job and financial problems
House leadership and moderate democrats are opposed to the more progressive group of congress women.
Murray reinforced that Ocasio-Cortez is too far away for most Americans.
& # 39; I think it is far, far left and not connected to ordinary Americans, & # 39; she said to Fox.
Murray claims that Ocasio-Cortez is more interested in earning a salary increase for herself than in helping to create jobs for people in the two boroughs of New York City she represents.
& # 39; Queens and The Bronx need someone who creates jobs instead of sending them away. Someone to unite the fight in Washington and help you build a bridge to a better future for yourself, instead of striving for a pay raise for themselves, "she said in the video.
In a controversial movement, Ocasio-Cortez became one of the only Democrats who agreed that it was right to vote on her own increase, claiming it was simply an increase in the cost of living instead of a real increase.
Murray & # 39; s video makes no mention of President Donald Trump or the Republican party – probably a smart move for the area in which she will compete.
