Democratic House nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared to get her political colors mixed up on Friday, when she said in a video that she wanted to turn a Kansas House seat red.
Ocasio-Cortez, who has become one of the leading figures of the Democratic Party’s left wing after her shock win over Rep. Joe Crowley, D-NY, in a primary last month, is in Kansas City to help Democratic hopeful Brent Welder’s challenge against Republican Kevin Yoder.
So excited to be here on Sen. Sanders’ account and we’re here in Kansas City to rally for Brent Welder,” Cortez said to the camera.
“We’re gonna flip this seat red in November.”
Joe Lieberman, who was the Democratic Party's candidate for vice president in 2000, in an interview with Fox News on Wednesday, said that Ocasio-Cortez’s ideas will struggle to gain support across America.
