Socialist blue New York is seeing its locals fleeing to other states, and with those kind of losses, someone’s congressional seat has got to go.
Whose seat is on the block? The Daily Wire has a report:
According to pollster Frank Luntz, New York is likely to lose a seat in Congress after the 2020 census and Democrats in the state legislature will have to redraw the state’s Congressional districts as a result. Although there are plenty of places to cut, New York Dems are reportedly eyeing Ocasio-Cortez’s Bronx district for elimination because she’s been out of sync with state-level Democrats who control the process.
“New York is expected to lose a House seat after the 2020 Census, and state Democrats are looking to draw out @AOC’s district,” Luntz wrote on Twitter. He included a link to an article from a local New York City magazine, The City, that suggested the Ocasio-Cortez is doubling down on her efforts to encourage her constituents to fill out the 2020 census so that she can stay in office.
The report goes on to note that the machinations of New York’s state legislators skew against Ocasio-Cortez’s spot, given that she doesn’t get along with them.
