voter casting a ballotA conservative activist does not believe any Republican stands much of a chance in unseating socialist Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) next year.

Jamaican-born immigrant Scherie Murray has created quite a media buzz since entering the Republican Party primary for New York's 14th District seat to challenge the freshman congresswoman who has achieved celebrity status in the national media.

As OneNewsNow has reported, Trump administration official Lynn Patton, an administrator in the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, told Fox News this week she is not ruling out a GOP primary run. She is critical of AOC and others of "The Squad," saying they "haven't done squat for the American people" since taking office in January. A recent internal Democratic poll reveals that only 22 percent of voters in Ocasio-Cortez’s district disagree with that assessment.

Bauer, Gary (American Values)"I do not want to discourage the women of color that are talking about or have announced that they will run against AOC in New York, but it is an overwhelmingly Democrat district," comments Gary Bauer, president of American Values.

Though he wishes them well, Bauer admits, "My political instincts tell me that it will probably take a Democrat that is pro-Israel and pro-America that will have a better chance of beating AOC in the Democrat primary than a Republican will have a chance to beat her in a general election."
