Texas Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar trashed his colleague Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for campaigning against him and for his primary challenger. He hit AOC where it hurts calling her a ‘far-left celebrity’ who should go back to New York take care of the people in her district.
Ocasio-Cortez, N.Y., will campaign in Texas this weekend for progressive House candidates including Jessica Cisneros, a Laredo immigration attorney who is challenging Cuellar. Henry said:
“This election is taking place in the 28th Congressional District of Texas- not New York City. The voters will decide this election not far left celebrities who stand for defunding the police, open borders, eliminating oil and gas jobs, and raising taxes on hard working Texans..
“Members should take care of their own district before taking failed ideas to South Texas.
