But in a year in which many Republicans are running for AG for the first time, he stressed that electing Republican candidates across the board is critical.

VIDEO: Ocasio-Cortez Continues Her Rage Against the Democratic Machine Tour
Socialist candidate for Congress, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is traveling the country and spreading her message to audiences in Kansas, Delaware, Florida, and Michigan. In some cases, Ocasio-Cortez is doing interviews on behalf of candidates, but in others, she’s actually showing up.

At an event in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Ocasio-Cortez ripped into a nameless, faceless Democratic establishment right from the start of her prepared remarks. To watch video of her speech, become an AR Intel Insider today and sign up for a 7-day free trial!
