According to election filings, at least 12 Democrats are planning on running against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on June 23rd.
No fewer than 12 Democrats have filed in the district to run against Ocasio-Cortez in the primary election on June 23, according to radio station WINS of New York City. In addition, at least three Republicans will vie for a chance to ultimately win the seat.
“Last election cycle, in the primary as we know, the turnout was quite low,” she told a small crowd in Corona, Queens. “This year, we want to multiply turnout by four times. That’s our goal. We want to secure 60,000 votes in the primary election. We need to start creating a turnout machine right now.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is still by far the most likely to win due to money and name recognition.
Ocasio-Cortez is considered difficult to beat. In addition to national media attention, she also amassed more than $5.3 million in campaign funds by the end of 2019, according to OpenSecrets.org.
It is unlikely that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will lose but that doesn’t mean this isn’t a big story. It is clear that people in her district view her as vulnerable and able to be beaten.
We also have the fact that her district is a complete mess(Don’t mind Andrew Lawrence’s tweet he is a Media Matters hack)
Tucker Carlson guest says that @AOC‘s district is dirty and the reason it’s so dirty is bc it’s “one of the least American districts in the country … it is occupied by relatively few American citizens” pic.twitter.com/OOn6aiMt7L

This is going to be her main weakness. She has made herself into a worldwide star while her own district suffers. Her constituents know this and will take this out on her at the ballot box.
