Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has quickly made a name for herself by challenging power brokers and those who hold influence, using the halls of Congress and her millions of social media followers to spread her progressive vision.

But over the weekend, when it came to Ocasio-Cortez being challenged — this time as the person with the power — the self-avowed democratic-socialist tucked tail and ran.

During the National Puerto Rican Day Parade in Manhattan on Sunday, talk radio producer Rich Valdes, a Republican who plans to challenge Ocasio-Cortez for her seat in Congress, confronted Ocasio-Cortez on Fifth Avenue.

Valdes wanted to challenge Ocasio-Cortez and her socialist vision, according to the New York Post.

However, once Ocasio-Cortez spotted Valdes, the freshman lawmaker “cut her handshaking short, jerked her hand back and jetted to the other side of the street,” Valdes told the Post.

“She literally ran!” he exclaimed. “I thought this was a good time to try and get a response but I honestly only saw the back of her head as she trotted across the street.”

The Post spoke with witnesses who confirmed what Valdes claimed. Curtis Sliwa said the incident unfolded around 12:30 p.m. Sliwa’s wife, Nancy, shared pictures with the Post showing a shocked Ocasio-Cortez turning to look at Valdes.

“As soon as she saw him she did a pirouette — a spin — and she ran north on Fifth Avenue, ahead of her delegation, just to get away from Rich,” he said. “I heard Rich yelling after her, ‘OK, AOC. You can run — but you can’t hide!'”

Her spokesman, Corbin Trent, denied that his boss ran from Valdes.

“She kept walking! The parade moved! It’s a procession! Give me a break,” he told the Post. “Tell him to run for office and she’ll debate him.”

Valdes, who previously worked for former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), revealed last week that he intends to move into New York’s 14th congressional district to run against Ocasio-Cortez in 2020.

Meanwhile, Ocasio-Cortez may be setting sights on a position with increased power and influence.

Axios reported Monday, citing top Democratic strategists, that Ocasio-Cortez may try to primary New York’s Democratic senators, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in 2022 or Kirsten Gillibrand in 2024.

    Gee; she should actually look for a a Bureaucracy position. After all when a weak-sister bureaucrat is in the way of the department fulfilling the necessary work; the weak-sister is promoted to a higher position in a less important dpartment with a fancy title. Sometimes even more pay.

    Whoops; I forgot She wants Chucklies Schumer’s job . Will be relatively equal job s long as she keeps doing dumb things.

    OMG!!!!!!! How ceazy is she?????? I’m Not a Democrat, but if she thinks she has a snowball’s chance in hell of running against Chuck Schummer she needs to crawl back under that rock she crawled out from

    He should have followed her……hot on her trail and forced her to debate. She can’t talk on her own w/o a script from Justice Democrats. He should have gotten in her face yelling like they fo Republicans when they see them out. He should have followed her screaming…..what about those Amazon jobs?

    She learned to run away from people that wish to engage in a discussion from Maxine Walters and other Democrats. They are fearful of facts and logic.

    Smart move. She had no script from her superiors, so she had to avoid showing she is nothing more than an out of work bartender.

    Ashe doesn’t want to be questioned by anyone that does not promote her crazy crap! She can’t answer tough questions because she is clueless! She is dumber than a rock! Vote her out, she is a crook!

    I wonder if she will also be fed the questions during any debate? They obviously cannot think on they’re feet. In her case when feeling threatened its just the flight part of her grey matter that works. But she must be being backed by some powerful people. No other newbe politician has been given seats on committee’s so fast in the DNC party. Probably CAIR and other organizations like them are supporting her monetarily. And its all being hidden behind the Muslin veil.

    My guess is this is why she didn’t keep her bar tender job. She ran when they expected her to work.She only knows to say what she is told. And then only gets it right if she can read it.

    Even if she is told what to say, she sounds like an idiot so the people writing her scripts must also be dumber than the box of rocks. Which doesn’t say much for the Socialist Democratps!

    As long as George Soros and his money can Buy her a seat in our Government, she will run for whatever Office,
    Crazy George tells her to!
    AOC is not worried about making money, check out the facts, she has George Soros paying her way!
    Money is no problem, Soros just needs to rig vote elections, just like last time and POW!! She is in office!!
    Most Corrupt Criminal Mafia Organization this World has ever seen!!
    You have to be a Corrupt Criminal to Vote For a Democrat!!
    Pick your friends wisely!!

Too scared to debate another person in public because she knows she has no clue on anything unless she reads what others on social media are saying about it. sad that we have people running this country who get 99% of their knowledge from Twitter or Facebook! What a joke this doofus is, cant we just throw her out and be done with her? she can take those two Muzzie traitor, sleeper cell Bitches with her.

    Margie. I hate to say this but as bad as the Mafia was, they were patriotic, one cannot say that about this piece of crap that came out of the dregs of New York. She should be thrown out of Congress, but Nancy and the other dregs in the DemoRAT party are terrified of her. If they weren’t they would have thrown her and those two Muslim traitors out with her months ago.
