Freshman firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) earned herself a new primary challenger for the 2020 election cycle.
The self-described democratic socialist will have to defeat Badrun Khan, a first-generation Bengali-American immigrant who describes herself as “a proud Democrat, advocate, community activist, mother and a proud daughter of an immigrant family.”
The New York Democratic primary candidate — the mother to two teenage daughters and “a financial officer for a large school” — said on her website that she “has spent her entire life fighting for justice, equality and fairness in her community.”
Khan’s website says that she wants to be a “uniter” and that she thinks that “all people” should be more involved with American politics.
Good luck with that one, tool. And will the DNC sanction anyone working with her against the incumbent Democrat?

Waiting patiently for Cuck Schumer, Jellyfish Pelosi, and Cheri Bustos to officially condemn this so-called candidate….. which I’m guessing will happen right about the same time I open a ski resort on Mephistopheles Mountain, here in Hell.

I would be interested in Khan’s reasons for running against Ocasio-Cortez. Is it just “I want to be a congresswoman?” Or is it “I was recruited by the DNC to nullify a progressive and because I’m a Bengali immigrant identity politics will shield me from criticism?”
His body recovered from his torment and became hale,
but the shadow of his pain was in his heart;
and he lived to wield his sword with left hand
more deadly than his right had been.

The Latter: We have a winner!
Bernie figured he could do more good Alive than
dead in a small plane "accident".
I think he's right.

She sounds like a DNC dem:
It is sad to say that our Health Care System is failing many Americans…
Badrun Khan is a believer that we can and must do better! As your Congresswoman Badrun will fight to ensure Social Security and Medicare benefits will not be reduced rather they should be enhanced from their current levels. She will fight to make sure Health Care is made available for all and that those who have existing coverage can choose to keep what they currently have.
Badrun Khan supports increasing Social Security benefits in areas that that have a significantly higher cost of Living like the 14th Congressional District, following a concept set forth in current Federal pay system. (= destroying the concept of SS & increasing the draw on benefits in wealthier real estate markets = higher-income retirees typically)
Our Seniors and those whom will soon enter retirement deserve to know that access to affordable healthcare is within reach and that their golden years will have guarantee protections.
Also, lazy website set-up, not spell-checked or grammar-checked.
The section on “government reform” = big nothing-burger. I’m getting the impression she’s not a serious candidate, actually.

No worries. AOC doesn’t even have to campaign to crush this one, though she probably will anyway.

“Bad Run For Congress” sums it up well for me…
