Meet the Democrat challenging Ocasio-Cortez in 2020


WE WILL BE FOLLOWING IT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR COVERAGE TONIGHT, GOOD TO SEE YOU. ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ QUICKLY BECAME A PROGRESSIVE DARLING LESS THAN A YEAR INTO HER FIRST TERM IN CONGRESS, BUT A NEW SURVEY FINDS DEMOCRATS IN HER NEW YORK CITY DISTRICT ARE SPLIT ON WHETHER OR NOT THEY WOULD SUPPORT HER FOR REELECTION. 26% SAID IT WOULD LIKELY SUPPORT A PRIMARY CHALLENGER, 43% SAID THEY WOULD NOT AND 31% ARE UNDECIDED ON THIS MATTER, SO THAT’S A LOT OF PEOPLE, AND NOW I CHALLENGER ON THE DEMOCRATIC SIDE HAS EMERGED. JOINING ME EXCLUSIVELY IN HER FIRST TV INTERVIEW, A DEMOCRAT PLANNING A PRIMARY CHALLENGE, AS I SAID, AGAINST AOC. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE, GOOD TO SEE YOU TONIGHT. AS A DEMOCRAT IN HER DISTRICT, SHE GETS AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF ATTENTION ON THE HILL. WHY DO YOU NOT SUPPORT HER?>>FIRST, THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME COME ON THE SHOW. PLEASE GO ON MY WEBSITE. IS WHY WE DON’T SUPPORT CORTEZ, WHEN SHE CAME OUT, SHE CAME OUT BEING A VERY STRONG PERSON WHO’S GOING TO BE FOR OUR CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT, BUT RIGHT NOW, WHAT HAPPENED WITH OUR OLD CONGRESSMAN, WASHINGTON AND VIRGINIA, SHE’S HOLLYWOOD AND WASHINGTON. SHE’S NEVER IN THE DISTRICT, SHE’S NOT SURE WHAT’S HAPPENING DISTRICT, SHE OPENED HER OFFICE PRETTY LATE AFTER SHE WAS ELECTED AND HER IDEAS ARE EXTREMELY — SOCIALISM IS NOT WHAT MOST OF OUR 14 CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS ARE LOOKING FOR.>>Martha: SO IN YOUR DISTRICT, SHE WAS VERY PROUD OF THE FACT THAT SHE WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN PREVENTING AMAZON FROM COMING THERE, WHICH WOULD HAVE BROUGHT A LOT OF JOBS TO THE AREA. HERE’S WHAT SHE SAID BACK ON FEBRUARY 15TH.>>THIS IS A CELEBRATION THAT EVERY DAY PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY STOOD UP AND THEY WANTED A SAY IN WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN THEIR OWN BACKYARD.>>Martha: IS THAT YOU FEEL?>>NO. WITH AMAZON, THE PROBLEM IS AMAZON WOULD BRING OUR ECONOMY AND OUR COMMUNITY PRETTY MUCH U UP, AND THEY WOULD GIVE A LOT OF WORK, 25,000 JOBS AND WE DIDN’T EVEN GET A CHANCE TO SPEAK ON THAT. IT WAS SHUT DOWN SINGLE-HANDEDLY AND I THINK IT WAS NOT FAIR FOR THE COMMUNITY. I THINK THE COMMUNITY CAME UP STRONGER, WOULD HAVE GIVEN THEM HIGH-LEVEL JOBS, ESPECIALLY FOR THE QUEENS BRIDGE, WERE ACTUALLY VERY UPSET AT WHAT HAPPENED. THERE WERE PEOPLE WHO ARE UPSET ABOUT THE SITUATION WITH THE TRAFFIC CONGESTION, BUT WE MAY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO WORK IT OUT. WE DIDN’T EVEN GET THE CHANCE TO DO THAT.>>Martha: SO HER NET POSITIVE FAVORABILITY IS PLUS 19 IN NEW YORK, 14. A NET POSITIVE FOR PLUS 27 AMONG DEMOCRATS. THAT’S A PRETTY HIGH HELPER TO CLIMB. AT 15 MILLION IN CASH HEADING INTO THAT ELECTION FOR 2020, HOW ARE YOU GOING TO OVERCOME ALL OF THAT?>>JUST TO TELL YOU, I’M NOT A POLITICIAN. I’M A MOTHER, AND IT WORKED ALL MY LIFE BUT I’M A DAUGHTER OF A BENGALI IMMIGRANT AND MY PARENTS HAD A TOUGH TIME WHEN WE GREW UP, BUT TODAY WE HAVE MANAGED TO DO THIS AND I THINK IF PEOPLE SEE WHAT IS SHE SAYING, REALITY. EVERYTHING CHANGE WON’T WORK. SAYING THINGS ON TV THAT I’M GOING TO DO THIS.>>Martha: WHAT WOULD YOU DO?>>I WOULD DO IT VERY DIFFERENT. LET’S SAY FOR EXAMPLE, MEDICARE FOR ALL. ONE THING — I DON’T KNOW HOW THAT’S GOING TO BE PAID. IF SHE EVEN TELL US HOW IS THAT GOING TO WORK? HOW IS THAT GOING TO COME OUT AND PEOPLE SAY — IT’S GREAT TO SAY I WANT TO DO THIS, BUT IF YOU SEE THE EXPENSES AND THE DEFICIT WE HAVE –>>Martha: AS A DEMOCRAT YOU WOULD RUN ON A PLATFORM OF NO MEDICARE FOR ALL.>>I WOULD RUN FOR EVERYONE HAS TO HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE. BECAUSE IF YOU DO MEDICARE FOR ALL, ALL THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE PRIVATE INSURANCE, IT’S A POOR CHOICE.>>Martha: HE WOULDN’T TAKE THAT AWAY?>>THERE HAS TO BE CHOICE.>>Martha: WHAT ABOUT THE GREENER DEAL?>>VERY GOOD, VERY EXPENSIVE. IS IT POSSIBLE TO DO THAT? PLEASE SHOW ME — I’M A CONTROLLER. I DO IT MATHEMATICALLY. EVERYTHING IS EASIER TO BE SAID, HOW IS THAT GOING TO BE DONE? CAN YOU SHOW ME PAPERS, NUMBERS?>>Martha: THESE PLANS WOULD INCREASE THE TAXES FOR THE PEOPLE IN YOUR DISTRICT?>>DEFINITELY. YOU CAN’T JUST DO IT THERE — IF YOU DO THE MATH IT’S ABOUT 535 PEOPLE ACCORDING TO FORBES AND THEY ARE ABOUT 2.7 TRILLION, THAT THE BILLIONAIRES WE HAVE. SO DO THE MATH –>>Martha: IT DOESN’T ADD UP.>>IT DOESN’T ADD UP.>>Martha: DO HAVE A POTENTIAL CANDIDATE YOU’RE BEHIND?>>ACTUALLY IT’S TOO EARLY. I’M SEEING THEM AND TRYING TO




Comments
  1. Here's a question for you, Fox; In USA, its the law to suck up to the first lady, and never to speak ill of the first lady. No matter how stupid she is. So how come you slam Hillary so much? A former first lady. Eh?

  2. I am no democrat but we need to get behind this lady. I like the republican gal running in this district but at 78% den voters, she will have a hard time. Either will be 110% better than that terd aoc !
    How is aoc going to pay her student loan now?

  3. Lies. I follow her on twitter and she's always going back to her district. So easy to fact check this lying challenger. FAKE NEWS!

  4. All you have to do is have some common sense and know maths and you would quickly realize that AOC is a disaster.
    I am a conservative but I am all for seeing a more sensible Democrat take AOC out. She is very bad for America and represents all that is wrong with the millennial generation.

  5. Ok, let's be honest here, this girl does not have what it takes to take on AOC. Also, she is just as radical as AOC, maybe not as crazy..

  6. AOC will get through the primary she will be in Congress for life. The Bronx goes Democrat no matter what is running. 25,000 jobs lost? No matter. Crazy "New Green Deal?" No matter. Puerto Rican AND Democrat? HOORAY !!! Sad but true.

  7. 43% unlikely to support a primary challenger to the moron that cost them 30,000 high paying jobs?
    That means the people they asked must be brain dead and have no clue who AOC is, or even what a primary challenger is.
    Or, they don't want jobs. They just want more welfare.
    Maybe all of the above.

  8. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, can be as ignorant as Ocassional-Cortex. So, I hope the Wrath of Khan can take out the braindead bartender and represent her district with pride, respect and a willingness to play nice! Children like AOC need to be disciplined and sent on a "time out" to reflect on their poor education and mental instability!

  9. She is another puppet trying to sound tough what a joke she will only side with the democratic agenda or they will cut her funding and support….next!!!

  10. She’s just trying to get a political seat and sees an opportunity to beat Cortez by being more rational. Can’t say I blame her but sure sounds like she’s trying to get a foot in the door to become a career politician

  11. New York 14th District is a local race. If you do not live there, you cannot vote for her. Why is this woman on national TV? This must be her 15 minutes of fame. Another self-absorbed Democrat hack. Hey NY, try voting Republican just once in a lifetime. Being a Democrat does not have to be a life-sentence.

  12. No democ-Rats period! They will all go against America as soon as they are elected and if they don't they will come suicide.

  13. Wow, a democ-Rat that makes some sense. But guess what, she is still looking forward to supporting one of their turds running for the presidency.

  14. Wow…there is still a common sense, fiscally responsible Democrat out there…hallelujah ! Hope she or the Republican former immigrant challenger ultimately wins the seat !!

  15. AOC receives the majority of her campaign funds from out of state, a lot from Hollywood. That's creepy when people fund a campaign to a district they're nowhere near. I don't know if that should be legal, it's circumventing the people of the district.

  16. 🇺🇸♥️🇺🇸NEW YORK STATE VOTE REPUBLICANS TO ENSURE A CLEAN GOOD MANAGEMENT, LAW AND ORDER TO YOUR DISTRICT? VOTE REPUBLICANS 2020🇺🇸What have you got to LOSE??🇺🇸MAGA🇺🇸♥️🇺🇸

  17. AOC was selected/elected an actor, puppet to get into Congress and being fed scripts what to say cause she did not get smart overnight. She is spending more time dividing the people in the country than working for the people in her district that elected her. The Socialist movement freebies for all to gain power and control of your life.

  18. Right now, she's just saying what she thinks people want to hear and then watch, she'll show her true colors. Democrats always do!! Make no mistake.😠

  19. You know if the Republicans running against her don't win I would hope that a Democrat like her does. Granted this is me saying that without knowing her policies but you can tell she would better for her district than AOC

  20. AOC will crush this lady (Badrun Khan), this lady seems nice but did not do her homework well. We all know that AOC is stupid but she has a team of people that helps her do research and prepare for the cameras really well, this lady (Badrun Khan) will obviously fumble in a talk debate or interview against someone that does not like her.

  21. Lol what a joke not for free medicare but everyone must have healtth insurance …sounds like obamacare and individual mandate all over again 🙄

  22. I think the reason Khan is challenging Cortez is so the Dems can do damage control by putting her up as a distraction candidate. To claw back some credibility, as they know AOC is damaging their party's prospects. Don't fall for it. Anyone to the right of AOC is still very anti-American. Look at their policies. It doesn't matter who the candidate is, they will ultimately have to abide by what the party machine wants.

  23. This girl doesnt even know what she is talking about either. I actually lost 100 IQ points watching this. I love trump, if decriminalized marijuana and a few other dumb crimes I think he wins in a landslide. GRAB THE DILDO TOATING DEMOCRATS VOTE TRUMP

  24. Note the spew…who did the survey….it's there right under the graphics. funny how it could not be a conflict of interest! who did they interview and how did they keep the stats? Liars figure and figures lie…normal Fox spin BS to what end do they cook the books here? And if they do it right in front of you how can you trust any of what they say? Can you say slanted news? This is true BS for the cult's consumption

  25. On the Medicare for all point, no one explains the added stress contributing to shorter life spans caused by stress from working all of the time and not having anything to show for it because all of your money is being taken by government.

  26. An alley cat with a lobotomy has more brains than she does….when she loses she will instantly get hired by MSNBC or CNN as a contributor
