Democrats Look at Eliminating Ocasio-Cortez’s District After 2020
Pelosi isn't playing. She's a crafty old politician. She's sees Ocasio-Cortez as a threat to her, but also to the Democratic Party in 2020 and beyond.
Perhaps Ms. Ocasio Cortez can run in Westchester County (hedge fund country) where she is ACTUALLY from. (The very upscale Yorktown Heights to be exact.)
In 2014, New York approved a constitutional amendment establishing a nonpartisan redistricting commission, which is set to take over the redistricting process starting in 2020.
The 10-member commission, meant to be independent from the legislature, is made up of individuals selected by leaders from the state Senate and Assembly, and the original eight members pick two additional members.
But Ocasio-Cortez’s most determined adversaries are not partisan Republicans, but Democrats who say that she has been a disruptive influence.
