Republican campaign ad touts AOC’s ” terrible ideas”

84SHARES

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is known for her unfiltered approach to her political views. Since being elected in the 2018 midterm elections, she’s risen in the ranks of becoming one of the United States’ most famous Democrats, but many disregard the Democratic-Socialist as inspiring yet not so logical when it comes to presenting arguments in the political arena.

In a recent poll released by the Siena College Research Institute, it showed that AOC’s approval rating is low at 31% among New York voters with 2/3 respondents saying that they strongly support the Amazon HQ deal that Ocasio-Cortez vehemently fought against. Moreover, President Donald Trump is polling higher among New Yorkers with a 36% favorable rating. And, while a growing number of Democrats now view her as a liability, Republican Michele Nix, a Republican candidate to become a Congresswoman in North Carolina, has released an advertisement slamming AOC as a face of the Democratic party.

In the 30-second advertisement titled “Bless Her Heart,” Nix comments that AOC “has the media, has the followers, but bless her heart, she has some terrible ideas.” Nix argues that AOC’s Green New Deal would be bad for North Carolina, and she positions herself as a candidate that will “stand up to socialism.”

Recently, Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign financing came into question amidst calls of “dark money” being used in propelling her to her congressional seat, and she was quietly removed from the board of the Justice Democrats PAC along with her chief-of-staff Saikat Chakrabarti who also co-founded the PAC.

While Ocasio-Cortez has slammed the accusations of wrongdoing, the controversy regards neither Ocasio-Cortez or Chakrabarti reporting to the Federal Election Commission of their leadership role in the PAC. They had “legal control over the entity,” and Justice Democrats was contributing money to Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign.

If it’s revealed that her campaign and the PAC were operating together, then it appears that both Chakrabarti and Ocasio-Cortez could face time in jail.
