But this is also the same state where AOC came from - and she is definitely behind some of the NYS infighting. Normally in congress, sure, Pelosi basically shuts her up. But within her state? Not so much...
NYS Dems started their downward spiral shortly after AOC first got elected. She's been interjecting herself into the Party's decision-making apparatus. She inspired a slew of like-minded politicians to rise and stage a hostile takeover of the party, regardless of whether it's detrimental. She led the movement against Cuomo and helped orchestrate his ouster. All charges against him were dropped, by the way.

And the results speak for themselves. Each election since her rise, Dems have lost voter share. It's only going to get worse to more she pushes. Her state allies are leading the charge now and they're completely rudderless and dysfunctional. Heck, even her own electoral results have been lackluster, receiving half the votes compared to 2020. She lost this election to a MAGA candidate with white supremacist sympathies. If the NYS GOP develops half a brain and puts in someone half competent to stand against her, she's in trouble.
