Ohio College Republican Federation calls AOC a 'domestic terrorist,' then apologizes

An email sent by the Ohio College Republican Federation called a prominent Democratic congresswoman a "domestic terrorist."

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York tweeted about the incident, calling the rhetoric dangerous and adding such incidents lead to spikes in death threats made against her.
