While the race to be the next president pretty much begins on inauguration day in the modern era, congressional races tend to start a bit later. Yet with more than fifteen months to go, freshman congresswoman and “squad” member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has already drawn a challenger who officially launched her campaign today. Shockingly, we’re not talking about a Democrat hoping to take AOC on in the primary, but a Republican.

Scherie Murray, a New York businesswoman who immigrated from Jamaica as a child and is active in state Republican politics, is launching a campaign Wednesday for the congressional seat held by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Fox News has learned.
In a phone interview, Murray, 38, confirmed her intention to run for the New York congressional seat as a Republican.
“There is a crisis in Queens, and it’s called AOC,” Murray told Fox News. “And instead of focusing on us, she’s focusing on being famous. Mainly rolling back progress and authoring the job-killing Green New Deal and killing the Amazon New York deal.”
