Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to lose her congressional seat based on all those NYC residents fleeing socialism?
American Thinker via Instapundit
Socialist blue New York is seeing its locals fleeing to other states, and with those kind of losses, someone's congressional seat has got to go.

Whose seat is on the block? The Daily Wire has a report:

According to pollster Frank Luntz, New York is likely to lose a seat in Congress after the 2020 census and Democrats in the state legislature will have to redraw the state's Congressional districts as a result. Although there are plenty of places to cut, New York Dems are reportedly eyeing Ocasio-Cortez's Bronx district for elimination because she's been out of sync with state-level Democrats who control the process.

"New York is expected to lose a House seat after the 2020 Census, and state Democrats are looking to draw out @AOC's district," Luntz wrote on Twitter. He included a link to an article from a local New York City magazine, The City, that suggested the Ocasio-Cortez is doubling down on her efforts to encourage her constituents to fill out the 2020 census so that she can stay in office.

#1 If it happens, you would need a heart of stone not to laugh. I hope she kept her mixology skills up to date.

#2 Dream on. Their first priority is and always will be to squeeze a Trunk out of their district.

#3 Whilst I eagerly await AOC's political demise, it may not happen in this manner this November. According to Wiki, NY lost a House seat in 2010 but the redistricting didn't happen until three years later.

If they do indeed redistrict, there are three rep's from the Bronx, and she's probably on the chopping block.

#4 I wonder if Pelosi will threaten to cut off DNC campaign money unless the dump Occasional Cortex from the ticket ?

#5 I agree with Procopius2k. They don't like AOC but they aren't going to give up a DEM +29 seat. They'd rather primary her out.

There is a north/south line on Long Island. East of the line (1st and 2nd districts) are GOP, west is DEM. I believe they will try to merge the two GOP districts as to not lose a DEM seat.

Normally they'd take a district that was high DEM to merge but I don't see any that are contiguous so it would look really bad if they did. Of course DEMS might not care.

#6 It'd be a good way for Pelosi to regain control of her caucus.

#7 DEMs are facing a red wave in 2020 and she knows it. Losing a solid blue seat would be foolish. She'll primary the AOC but probably keep her distance about it.

#8 I believe they will try to merge the two GOP districts as to not lose a DEM seat.

Taking another look at the map, this is spot on.

#9 any realignment of districts won't happen in time for the Nov 2020 election. 2021 at earliest IIUC

#10 And one more (obligatory) thought - redistricting is only bad when Republicans do it!

#11 Remember Bella Abzug (well, I'd really rather not; but her fate could be a warning to AOC.)
