Chuck Schumer just got some bad news.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (R-NY) is not ruling out primarying Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.
When asked by CNN’s Dana Bash if she is considering launching a primary bid for his seat, two-term congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez didn’t rule the option out.
“I know it drives everybody nuts, but the way that I really feel about this and the way that I really approach my politics and my political career is that I do not look at things and I do not set my course positionally,” the lawmaker told CNN during an interview that was conducted in late June.
“And I know there’s a lot of people who do not believe that, but I really, I can’t operate the way that I operate and do the things that I do in politics while trying to be, aspiring to other things or calculating to other things.
“For what it’s worth, Senator Schumer and I have been working very closely on a lot of legislation and that, to me, is important,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “And so, we shall see.”
