Republican Immigrant from Jamaica Is Challenging Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in 2020 byfor The Daily Sheeple
New York businesswoman Scherie Murray announced Wednesday that she is running for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional seat in 2020.
In a series of tweets announcing her candidacy, Murray, who immigrated to New York from Jamaica when she was 9, said Ocasio-Cortez was more “worried about being famous” than representing her constituents.
“There’s a crisis in Queens and it’s called AOC,” the Republican said, referring to Ocasio-Cortez by her initials. She said the freshman Democrat “seeks celebrity & publicity” and “thinks public service is not about serving the public, but herself.”
Murray said she had experience building bridges “between constituents in our community and the elected officials that represent them, between different nationalities and races, and between political parties.” She said Ocasio-Cortez instead favored conflict and criticized her for her role in driving Amazon to abandon its plans to build a second headquarters in New York.
Candace Owens tweeted her support for Murray writing “she has my full support,” adding that ” AOC is a nasty representation for all women of color.”
It is time for New Yorkers to vote the aspiring actress who HATES America and HATES white people out of office.
AOC is a nasty representation for all women of color.
Vote Murray! https://t.co/54JF6Qcv7L

Murray is going to need all the help she can get because New York’s 14th congressional district, the seat currently held by Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, has been represented by Democrats since 1993.
