A new political calling has already been suggested for one New York Democrat who has only been on Capitol Hill for four months.
The news organization has weighed out the chances that Rep. Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez could one day be elected mayor of New York City, her home town. The publication suggests that the realities of Congress may lose their appeal for the lawmaker.
“The fun Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is having could fade if — as is theoretically possible — the GOP regains the House in 2020. Then she’d be faced with the interminable drudgery of being without seniority and in a minority. One can imagine that the prospect of a mayoral race would look attractive to the young firebrand with a, we don’t mind saying, quick wit and taste for the limelight,” the editorial said.
Their suggestion comes at a time when New Yorker are not so happy with current Mayor Bill de Blasio, who is now running for president and has already left the Big Apple for the campaign trail. Mr. de Blasio is currently touring Iowa and South Carolina.
The New York Post called his campaign a “farce” while street protesters have chanted, “Can’t run the city, can’t run the country” in recent days.
