NEW SOCIALIST “IT GIRL” CONTINUES TO PAY DIVIDENDS: Ocasio-Cortez weighs a new primary target: Hakeem Jeffries.

Jeffries [D-NY] has sparked the ire of Justice Democrats for several reasons. The group feels Jeffries takes too much money from corporate interests, a key litmus test, and is overly friendly with banking and pro-charter school interests. But Ocasio-Cortez is also unhappy that a campaign donation to her from Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) was allegedly used in a whisper campaign against Lee before her narrow loss to Jeffries in the recent race for Democratic caucus chair — a charge those allegedly involved have called a complete falsehood.

“It’s personal for Ocasio,” said the person who spoke with Ocasio-Cortez and her staff. “And she’s going to go all out to take him out.”

“Target?” “It’s personal?” “Going all out to take him out?” With all that eliminationist rhetoric flying around AOC, I sure hope her clip art has been approved by Paul Krugman.

UPDATE: What Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Challenge To Hakeem Jeffries Could Mean For 2020.
