Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pushed to challenge Chuck Schumer in Senate primary

by By Seth McLaughlin - The Washington Times -  |  Published on June 22, 2020

The sacking of Rep. Joe Crowley two years ago and the prospect of giving Rep. Eliot L. Engel the boot Tuesday in the New York Democratic primary has far-left activists dreaming big about the future.

So big, in fact, that liberals are kicking around the idea that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could launch a 2022 primary challenge against a titan of the Democratic Party establishment: Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer.

“Just going to say something out loud that should be obvious: The fastest way to speed up the process of changing the corrupt, do-nothing, status-quo-protecting culture of the national Democratic Party is for @AOC to defeat @ChuckSchumer in a Democratic primary in 2022,” David Sirota, a senior adviser to Sen. Bernard Sanders’ presidential campaign, recently said in a post on Twitter.

Grassroots activists are looking for a successor to take up the mantle of far-left politics that Mr. Sanders, 78, carried in his two bids for the Democratic presidential nomination.
