NY-14: AOC worried about losing seat after 2021 redistricting.

With New York likely to lose at least one congressional seat, the district held by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could be broken up, forcing her to find a new winning coalition. There’s little love for the disruptive young upstart in Albany, and many state lawmakers would like nothing more than to redraw her out of office. Ocasio-Cortez seems aware of the threat, as she’s been promoting Census sign-ups in her district to ensure that her constituents are fully counted.

3. Even as a "celebrity" she's been very effective on the committees on which she serves.

Of course that does not matter to the right wingers and centrists who like to demonize her for no real reason other than she, as a woman of color, climbed the ladder to success, put a white man out of a job and is good at what she does.

11. What the heck?

She most certainly is a woman of color. I am born and raised in California with a family history in California spanning back 150 years and White people STILL ask me where I am REALLY from and compliment me on how well I speak English.

Being a citizen of the US has absolutely NOTHING to to with being a person of color. Stacey Abrams I am sure, can trace her heritage WAY back in US history and she is a woman of color.

Rethink your statement...

14. I'm pretty sure it's your familial heritage and not your address,

locale, or place of family origin that determines your ethnicity.

15. Puerto Rico is a COUNTRY, not a color.

Puerto Ricans come in all colors and races. She identifies as a woman of color and she's the one who gets to decide.

18. Irish people also come in different races,

though they are predominately white. And some "white" Irish people have the darker "Celtic" coloring -- almost black hair and skin that easily tans.

20. It's those Kerry feckers you have to be concerned about.... and those Cavan fellas with the tight

arses

Actually there's a grouping in Galway/Mayo who have that easily tanned skin, that it is reckoned have a connection to the Spanish Armada survivors who landed there in 1588.

people with olive skin, brown eyes, and very dark hair -- not an uncommon mix among the Irish.

Solved the problem by redistricting him into a redder population. Rep. Doggett simply put on his walking shoes and started knocking on doors. He's still serving!

lots of things could happen, or might not. Good idea about the census though.

8. NYS may lose a seat but I don't see that happening in NYC

NYC has been adding population since the last census while upstate NYS is losing population.
I think this article is just fake news thrown to their conservative base.

Remember that after 2010 census, New York eliminated Anthony Weiner’s seat.
