Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is in big trouble. The 29-year-old bartender’s worst nightmare just happened today. One of her own constituents, a Jamaican immigrant from Queens who is also a Trump supporter, is ready to kick her back to the Bronx. She just shocked AOC with what she had to say about her time in Congress. You’ll love this.
Her name is Scherie Murray, a Jamaican-born woman who grew up in Queens and founded a TV production and advertising company, and she is fed up with her representative running around like she’s a Hollywood celebrity while ditching her responsibilities to those who elected her.
Scherie Murray is vowing to kick AOC back to the Bronx. Today, Murray announced she’s running against the former bartender.
“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.”
Murray, who was born in Jamaica and moved to the United States when she was 9, is officially launching her campaign Wednesday with an introductory video that is a blistering attack on the 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez.
“Your representative in Washington chooses self-promotion over service, conflict over constituents, resistance over assistance,” Murray said in the video. “Queens and the Bronx needs someone who will create jobs instead of turning them away.”
Asked about Ocasio-Cortez’s brand of Democratic socialism, Murray said, “I think it’s far, far to the left and it is not connecting with everyday Americans.”
As for “Medicare-for-all,” which Ocasio-Cortez has embraced, the Republican said: “Medicare-for-all, I think a lot of people are happy with their current health insurance.” And on the Green New Deal, the left-wing proposal to address climate change pushed by Ocasio-Ortez, she said: “We know that it certainly will kill jobs.”
Asked during the interview if she considers herself a Trump supporter, she said “yes.” She said she is in the process of talking with national Republicans about her campaign, including South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, a prominent black Republican in Congress.
Murray has real-life experience in creating jobs.
Murray, who grew up in Southeast Queens and worked for the city’s Jamaica Bus Depot as a teenager, founded a television production and advertising company called The Esemel Group in 2004. She said her business generated employment for minorities in New York City. She said she no longer works for the company and is now a full-time mother.
She’s also proud to have met President Donald Trump. On his birthday last month, she tweeted a picture of the meeting: “Happy Birthday to our President @realDonaldTrump May God continue to bless you as President of the United States of America. May God bless us all.”

This isn’t going over well with the AOC crowd.
The Twitter trolls got wind of this “woman of color” who is challenging their beloved AOC and they decided to attack Murray.
“Maybe you haven’t noticed but the Republican Party is the Party of White Nationalist. @GOP is an expressly RACIST group. They will gladly see you ‘fight’ @AOC but will never really support or accept you. You could better serve your community by working with AOC,” tweeted Josh Friedman.
Luckily, Ms. Murray is already finding out many Americans are ready to defend her with cold hard facts. Bill Bentgen responded to Friedman: “White Nationalist? (sic – should have an ‘s’) That’s why under President Trump there is record low unemployment for Blacks, Hispanics, & Women. That’s why Hispanic homeownership is making record gains. Black small businesses on the rise also.”

“You could not be more wrong Josh. PTL for @ScherieMurray who is willing to stand up for what she believes in and take on someone who is trying to destroy this country (AOC) someone who does not even know what concentration camps are. My prayers go out to Mrs Murray,” tweeted Todd Empcke.

Ocasio-Cortez’s backers along with her staffers must be shaking in their boots. Here’s a smart, educated woman who has a history of creating jobs in her own community ready and willing to do everything she can to make sure AOC’s days are numbered.
We are sure Scherie Murray will welcome any and all support Americans can give her. Even if you can’t donate to her campaign, it would mean a lot to support her on social media. It would be a welcome sight to see Scherie Murray sworn into office in 2020.
