State Democratic Chairman Jay Jacobs stood out on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday because of the congressional and legislative contests in New York’s main battlefield last week. The results are disappointing.
Jacobs, who is also the leader of the Democratic Party in Nassau County, said that he has lectured with AOC and other leftists, and that the Democrats had to fight to compete and win games in the purple areas of Long Island and the North.
“AOC has no position on how to hold elections in the suburbs and the north. The area where AOC is located is a 6-1 year old Democrat. She can’t find Republicans in her area with binoculars.
“I invited AOC to come to Long Island and run in one of our regions. You will see different results,”
Ocasio-Cortez, who represents the Bronx and Queens sections of the 14th congressional district, easily won a second term in the Republican challenger John Cummings last week.
Jacobs said that Democrats will not gain control of the Senate in 2018 if they do not win the suburbs and northern regions on the battlefield. He said that progressive laws such as controversial bail reforms would not have happened without them.
Although former Vice President Joe Biden defeated President Trump in the battle for the White House, the party unexpectedly lost a seat in the House of Representatives as a result of an internal struggle within the Democratic Party.
In New York, Republicans led Democratic incumbents and others to vacancies, and vacancies were held in congressional campaigns on Long Island and Staten Island and about six state Senate races. However, about 1.5 million absentee votes are still being counted, which may tilt the results.
The Republicans voted up and down to conduct a security campaign in New York, attacking Democrats for approving a law that cancelled cash bail for many criminal defendants, supported the “demotion” of police and promoted socialism. The Democrats who run the purple area oppose the defense of the police and socialism, but their leftists (including the Arab Oil Company) support the latter two positions.
Like Rep. James Cliburn of South Carolina, Jacobs said that the progressive “no police” slogan promoted hurt Democrats in swing areas.
State Democratic leaders close to Governor Andrew Cuomo also stated that the left-wing mantra of promoting socialism “frightened” voters in suburban and Upstate.
A spokeswoman for Ocasio-Cortez once commented to The Post, saying that the congresswoman had previously accused moderate Democrats of causing losses to progressives.
AOC stated on CNN: “I really believe that we need to unite and not let the republican speech make us fall apart.”
“It is irresponsible to pour gasoline in these delicate tensions in the party.”
Ocasio-Cortez (Ocasio-Cortez) also gained a foothold on Twitter, saying that things that are morally correct at any time are not always popular.
The idea that politicians can control the rights protection news is unreasonable. They are of no use to us,” she said on Twitter on Wednesday.
“Our job is to listen to and develop our information, own it, win and lead. There were no good polls for the civil rights movement at the time. MLK was not popular. Does that mean he was inefficient.”
“Activists are not focus groups. BLM is not DNC. It is the job of the police to have your own information.”
Last week, she also criticized some incumbent lawmakers who had lost the Democratic Party for not putting money into social media.
“Some people ran around on TV, accusing progressiveism as the reason for Dem’s poor performance. I was curious, so I decided to open the door to a tough campaign for candidates who blamed progress for their problems. Almost everyone Both performed badly in numbers. During the pandemic,” AOC tweeted.
“The whole’progressiveism is bad’ argument, but I haven’t seen any convincing evidence. When it comes to “Defund” and “Socialism” attacks, people need to realize that this is a racial resentment attack. You will not disappear You can reduce its effectiveness,” she wrote.
