AOC condemns Democrats’ strategy of backing ‘dangerous’ right-wing GOP candidates

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York blasted Democratic leaders’ attempts to meddle in Republican primaries to promote extremist candidates whom they think Democrats could beat in a general election, calling it dangerous.

The self-described democratic socialist congresswoman criticised the efforts, saying that Democrats hoped that former president Donald Trump would be the 2016 Republican nominee.

“I don’t think we should be elevating dangerous elements of the right-wing”, she told The Independent. “Democrats who have that type of thinking should have learned that lesson with Trump in 2016 but, I personally am not supportive.”
