Axios: Democrats Buzzing About Possibility That Alexandria Donkey-Chompers May Primary Either Chuck "Bank Whore" Schumer or the Stupid Lightweight Kirsten Gillibrand

Axios doesn't mention this, but this happens while Democrats are also chattering about the possibility that they may redistrict Alexandria Donkey-Chompers' seat out of existence and force her into a primary fight with another incumbent Democrat, also serving part of the newly-formed district.

So is this a threat that if she doesn't have an easy seat to defend she'll take out the oleaginous, bank-servicing Schumer or the ditzy Dumb Wave Feminist Gillibrand?

None of this will probably happen, of course, but... I dunno, it's fun to contemplate.

Top Democrats tell "Axios on HBO" they expect Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may eventually primary one of the two New York senators -- Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in 2022, or Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in 2024.

Why it matters: AOC has instantly become one of the party's most coveted endorsers (up there with Clintons and Obamas) -- and has recently made common cause with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a pairing that could take off.

A Harris poll for "Axios on HBO" shows socialism is soaring in popularity, especially with women ages 18 to 54 (55%) and younger Americans.

Corbin Trent, Ocasio-Cortez's communications director, said that when she thinks down the road, she thinks in terms of transitioning Democrats to a party that's unified around progressive policies.
