Blue states are losing seats and red states are gaining them. The Trump bastions are increasing their clout in Congress. How dare people move to states that are friendlier to their pocketbooks. This is happening and New York is about to lose a congressional seat. Who will get the axe?
Will it be Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? We’ve discussed how her biggest enemy isn’t Republicans, it’s the New York Democratic Party who aren’t too keen to her brand of politics. She might be eyeing launching a primary challenge against Chuck Schumer. She could run for governor. For Ocasio-Cortez, the sky is the limit, and while she might challenge Schumer anyway, keeping her district from the shredder could entice her to sit out 2022, maybe. Axing her district would release her into the wild where she’s more unpredictable. She very well could run in a neighboring district and win.
But why is this happening in New York? Why are they losing a seat?
