1. Sounds like Axios is trying to stir dissension in the Democratic ranks

This is years away. I won't listen to this shit until at least early to mid-2021.

2. I Wouldn't Think So

"But Corbin Trend, Ocasio-Cortez’s communications director, told Axios, “Having worked on her campaign, I don’t think we’re going to be moving to a different role any time soon.”

to run when Schumer eventually retires.

3. With zero evidence,

and a statement from her communications director contradicting the claim.

This bait don't taste right to me.

5. I think AOC is the one who'll be primaried

This is going to sound like a silly question, but while she’s busy purifying the Democratic Party has she taken the time to do a little constituent service? I get the feeling Joseph Crowley could get his job back pretty easily because he was a good congressman.

6. Really?

As for AOC and constituent service, I guess that will be up to the voters next year as to whether she's met their needs.

7. I doubt he could.

Besides, he's got a lucrative lobbying job now.

9. Good- Schumer should never be majority leader again.

That job should go to either Warren or Harris, whoever isn't president when the Dems take bake the Senate.

13. Thanks to those who point out her com director denies this moronic idea & that Axios may be ...

...in essence, trolling.

That path would be suicidal. For Dems in 2020 and for her. The problem is not with our Dems, it is with Trump and the GOP.
