Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., slammed New York Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday, arguing that she can’t even sell her far-left agenda to her own party.
McConnell told “America’s Newsroom” that Ocasio-Cortez’s agenda “is not in the middle,” adding that he doesn’t believe she can “sell her agenda” to the Democrat party, nor find any appeal from Republicans.
McConnell made the comments reacting to a tweet where Ocasio-Cortez warned that time is precious, reminding fellow Democrats that the majorities they enjoy in the House and Senate might not last.
In a series of Twitter messages on Wednesday, the lawmaker from New York suggested that an untimely death among Democrats could cost the party its slim Senate advantage even sooner than the 2022 midterm elections.
“During the Obama admin,” she wrote, “folks thought we’d have a 60 Dem majority for a while. It lasted 4 months.”
