    No Republican is a formidable challenger in her district. Only a primary challenger would have a shot.

    And you can bet that Nancy and the DNC will ensure there is a primary challenger with lots of funding!

    She only won by a couple of thousand votes last time. Solidly Dem area so even a Jamaican Republican has little chance but a moderately sane Dem should win easily.

    AOC won with 78% of the vote last year and she was the youngest woman ever to be elected to Congress and won't turn 30 until October. And Trump's attacks will help not hurt her chances to become a fairly powerful congresswoman because seniority and committee chairmanships is where the power is in congress.

    Even the average Dimwit in her district is not as goofy as you are ... she is one and done.
    The DNC will throw money at her challenger.

    Pretty damn low in her district per polls.

    Poll: AOC disliked, distrusted, unwanted in her own NY district

    It found that she has a low 21% favorability rating, that just 11% believe she has their best interests in mind, and that only 13% would vote to reelect her.

    Then why would pelosi throw a lot of money there? That would just make it look like she’s a victim of the national party.

    Considering that the poll was conducted by a right wing organization as well as the fact that there was a sizable number of "not sure" responses there is very little take away from the poll.

    After the glass of water comment it’d be nice to see the district flip.

    Everyone is saying Pelosi is Speaker in name only. AOC all but called Pelosi a racist. So no surprise if Pelosi backs someone else in the primary.

    It really doesn’t matter who is elected in that district. They are being elected by whack jobs, I don’t trust that population to make an educated decision.
