Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s surging national profile has inspired a trio of Republican opponents from her home district — along with a multimillionaire mystery donor who could help close the gap in her foes’ long-shot race against her.

Just three months after taking office, the Democratic socialist congresswoman’s challengers include an Egyptian American journalist, who has already tossed her hat in the ring, and an NYPD cop-turned-high school civics teacher and conservative talk radio producer, both of whom are seriously exploring a run against her.

And the fledgling challengers could get help from a wealthy New Yorker committed to backing an Ocasio-Cortez opponent, a GOP big said.

“There’s definitely national energy and money on this race,” Bronx Republican chairman Mike Rendino told The Post, adding that he has been in touch with a mega-bucks donor hell-bent on getting AOC tossed. Rendino wouldn’t divulge the donor’s name but said the individual is “worth over $200 million, plus [has] connections to raise money in Manhattan.”

Tom Doherty, a former deputy to former Gov. George Pataki, said a Republican challenger to AOC would be able to “raise real national money. “We need to put individuals forward and make the incumbent work for re-election,” Doherty said.

The three potential contenders agree on one thing: They believe Ocasio-Cortez has neglected her district, which encompasses a northeast section of the Bronx including Throgs Neck and Parkchester and a northwest portion of Queens including Jackson Heights and College Point.

It took the congresswoman two months to open a district office in Queens. “She completely ignores the people in this district,” medical writer Ruth Papazian, 61, told The Post during an interview at the homestyle Italian eatery Patricia’s of Morris Park.

Papazian still lives a few blocks away with her 85-year-old mother in the same apartment she grew up in after her parents emigrated from Egypt in 1956.

“I’ve lived here my whole life. I know the heart and soul of this community. The people here have scratched and clawed their way into the middle class, and they’re not about to be impoverished with the high taxes it will take to make the Green New Deal and Medicare for all,” Papazina said, citing two of Ocasio-Cortez’s policy goals.

Papazian is the only area Republican to have committed to running against Ocasio-Cortez — the others are exploring potential races. Papazian has yet to launch a website or establish a fundraising operation.

But she has huddled with President Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, at a Lincoln Day dinner in Queens. “He was encouraging and offered to be helpful when Ruth has demonstrated that she can raise enough money for a serious race,” a source told The Post.

A rep for Lewandowski did not return messages seeking comment. Meanwhile, former NYPD Officer John Cummings has been talking to Rendino.

Cummings, 58, teaches US government at St. Raymond High School for Boys in Parkchester. “I know it’s a difficult road because this is a heavily Democratic district,” said Cummings, who also attended St. Raymond’s.

Ocasio-Cortez won the 14th Congressional District with more than 78 percent of the vote, and Hillary Clinton led the district by over 57 points in 2016.

A recent Siena College Poll found that 52 percent of AOC’s constituents view her favorably — but just 33 percent backed her opposition to Amazon establishing a second headquarters in Queens, and 41 percent support her Green New Deal.

But Cummings says the congresswoman ignores more home-grown problems like the long-haul truck drivers who use Pelham Bay Park as a rest stop. “She’s only interested in a national platform, and we need local representation,” Cummings said.

Rich Valdes, 40, who worked for former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie before joining radio’s “The Mark Levin Show” as a producer, joked that the congresswoman’s initials could also stand for “ambition over constituents.”

Valdes launched an exploratory committee in February. He’s met with Republican clubs in the Bronx and Queens.

“They’re really, really kind of discouraged at the fact that she was elected on this platform of representing the district because she ran against [former Rep. Joe] Crowley, positing him as being no-show, and she’d turned out to be very much the same way a no-show person,” Valdes said.

Ocasio-Cortez’s 10-term predecessor, Crowley, lost to the 28-year-old liberal activist in last year’s primary after skipping two campaign debates.

But her spokesman, Corbin Trent, defended his boss’ record. “I couldn’t disagree more with people who are suggesting that the congresswoman isn’t present enough in the district,” Trent said.

“She’s done town halls, community board meetings, been available for office hours, she’s sat with activists and organizers and had a very strong presence in the district.”

Citing AOC’s strong polling numbers, Trent added, “The reason she has the support of the people in the district is they realize the work she’s doing at a national level is tying back to the district — Medicare for all, the Green New Deal, all these priorities.”

      You guys are so comical, and so predictable. The right wing media sees a rising political star on the left, and they proceed to trash that person relentlessly, in hopes of derailing his or her career. That’s what they’re doing here, and you’re too dense to recognize the ploy for what it is.
      You just jump right on the bandwagon and parrot whatever they say.

        Sorry Olivia….These GOP folks are jumping on the bandwagon BEFORE AOC ruins this District. She did win but she only received 16,000 votes which represented 5% of her entire DISTRICT. I’ll admit her advisors saw an OPPORTUNITY of Ignorance and she was voted in due to shear IGNORANCE on her opponent who did not even campaign. NOT this time around for sure. AOC is a “nutjob” and needs to go…

        Gotta say, about your “so predictable” point …I was surprised to see your comment so far down the list. I figured you’d jump at this from the get-go, as they say.

        Your characterization as a ‘rising political star’ could easily be compared to a mortar being launched, which has only one purpose: to destroy the enemy. The enemy of course being the stability of America.

        How she got to where she is and the destructive policies she’s pushing, very clearly indicate that it’s not America she’s representing, but rather special interests elsewhere.

        Yeah she’s a real “rising star” alright! She is ignorant about basic concepts of government and American history. She makes shit up as she goes along and then says “sometimes being factual isn’t as important is being right morally”. If that’s your rising star, good luck to you. You are one goofy bitch!

    AOC is so taken with her own importance and especially embracing the SOCIALIST agenda that she fails to recognize the failings of both. She is so inamoured with SELF that she doesn’t realize how short on common sense she is , therefore her mouth operates without the benefit of a thoughtful brain operating it. Because of her mouths ability to operate independent of concious thought, and the weighing of idea against reality , she can embrace SOCIALISM. Her lack of true education, of history, world realities, and realistic mathmatics , allows for Utopian Ideas. In essence to AOC pigs can fly as can trains, cows farting cause ” global warming” and America can simply print money whenever the need arises. Hopefully she doesn’t think “I still have Checks in my checkbook , I’ll just write a check for what I want , no matter the account is empty!”. She obviouslt is unaware of Margaret Thatchers statement about SOCIALISM and I quote. ” The problem with SOCIALISM is that you eventually run out of OTHER PEOPLES MONEY!”

    All the democrat reps. in the House are only thinking about a national Platform, NONE of them are doing anything for their constitutes in their districts, Thats the problem with them all.Secondly, the whole party is only concentrating on Trump, not one of them has been doing anything that they were elected to do, they all seem to only want to be the hero of the left who “got rid of Trump” name one thing the dems have done since Trump was Elected (except for losing the election…lol) that was for their voters or even the country as a whole… They are so hell bent on Impeachment or anything else they can do to oust the POTUS BEFORE the 2020 Campaign that the very voters who supported them and elected them aren’t even a second or third thought. And then there are these new, younger generation of newcomers with their radical ideas and agendas who are totally only out to see who can make the biggest Splash. They act like they have to answer to no one, like they have complete immunity to do or say whatever they feel and while the older, established Dems are trying NOT to show how upset and PO’d they are at these green newbies in the House,, the cracks are starting to show. A lot of dems, esp. older ones who are more experienced and a lot smarter are starting to sit back and just watch them all while silently shaking their heads and waiting for the right moment to stand up and say, “Thats enough out of you..STFU!” i mean the Green New deal? at fist All the dems were like Yeah, cool, i like it…until they had to actually vote for it and put their names to it.. lol and this Omar woman just making these comments that are pissing off every American left and right and then refusing to apologize and all her newbie friends like AOC coming to her defense…? Way to radical for the old dem. guard! I dont see any of then getting re elected and i dont see any one of the dems running for POTUS who agree with these young nuts actually getting the nomination. I predict 2020 will be Trump Vs. Biden.

      Can someone educate me please as to what the DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM is? I don’t think we have even seen a PLATFORM from the Dems since 62! The current so called ” PLATFORM ” is impeach a duly elected POTUS and disrupt any progress that can possibly be made. While putting forth UTOPIA without any RESPONSIBILITY on the part of their constituents except giving their ” Government” all their money.

      • Olivia

        April 23, 2019 at 10:57 am

        You haven’t seen a Democratic platform, because the far right wing media you go to for your information doesn’t talk about Democrats, except to bash them. (And, by the way, the Democrats have no intention of impeaching Trump. It would be an exercise in futility, because Yertle McConnell is so corrupt he’d never let it get through the Senate.)

        The Democratic platform varies among candidates, but here are the basic ideas:

        __Affordable health care. (Since the Republican plan is to get rid of “Obamacare” without any replacement.)

        __Affordable college tuition, and getting rid of predatory student loans.

        __Getting billionaires and corporations to pay their fair share of income tax, instead of making working people make up the difference.

        __Get rid of welfare for lazy, entitled bums who can’t get their act together and don’t want to work. (I’m referring, of course, to corporate welfare.)

        __Election reform—get Putin and his goons out of our electoral process, and pass legislation to ensure that everyone who’s legally entitled to vote is able to do so without having to jump through hoops.

        __Stop kowtowing to the fossil fuel industry and other polluting corporations, and start taking reasonable measures to protect our environment.

        __Ensure affordable mental health treatment, so psychiatric patients don’t have to lie on cots in the ER for 10 days at a time, waiting for a bed on an inpatient unit.

        __Ensure that government social programs protecting the nation’s most vulnerable (disabled, abused, veterans, the elderly, the accused, and the very young) are adequately funded.

        A couple of longterm goals:

        __Work to get corporate money (aka legalized bribery) out of politics. Elected officials are public servants, and should be serving their constituents—ALL constituents—not just the lobbyists who hand over the biggest checks.

        __Work to get rid of the electoral college. Are you a Republican living in a blue state? Then your presidential vote counts for nothing, because your state will end up supporting the Democrat even if the Republican gets the majority of votes.

        I’m sure I left a few out, but those are some of the big ones.

        • Olivia

          April 23, 2019 at 11:01 am

          Oh, I forgot this one: DECREASE THE DEFICIT. Like most Republicans, Trump promised to do that in his perpetual campaign rallies—but, also like most Republicans, he blew up the deficit even more, in order to reward his cronies and donors. (After he signed the tax bill into law, he said to them, “You all just got a lot richer.”)

          In fact, it’s the Democrats who get stuck decreasing the deficit, while spendthrift Republicans accuse them of spending too much.

            You truly are ignorant, Obama ran our debt up from 9.2 Trillion to 20 Trillion all by his lonesome. That is 10.8 Trillion dollars all on his lonesome. He doubled our debt from the past 43 presidents combined while giving away all sorts of American interests. However, back in 2008 a then president elect Obama was sashaying around the Country to 57 States as he stated with two he hasn’t been too yet claiming that Bush ran up our debt from 5 Trillion to 9 Trillion. Obama considered Bush raising the debt 4 trillion to be Unpatriotic, he said that is irresponsible. Then he turns around and raises our debt 10.8 trillions not only doubling Bush debt nearly tripled it and uneducated like yourself praise him and worship him a god. He said that with 9 Trillion dollars of debt, every man woman and child will have to pay back $30K. From the day you are born, you are in debt for $30K as Obama would like to put it. After his wrath on this nation that has double to over $60k every man woman and child owes.

          Get rid of welfare for lazy entitled bums? Ok good idea but how will advancing to socialism do this? By taxing everyone to the limit? Without corporations. and those wealthy enough tto provide a workplace where do the jobs come from? Affordable healthcare? How ?O Care sure didn’t 600$ a month for one person affordable? I think not! Fined if you couldn’t afford it ? Really a big help there. Affordable college? Ok we send all to college at a 420 $ billion price tag oh well corporations and the wealthy can pay for it! But God forbid thoe who are NOT college material learn a trade. But I do agree with getting rid of predatory school loans. Affordable mental health care legalize marijuana that will make em all able to sit on the couch and giggle their lives away. The Government will keep them up. Heaven forbid we should face life sober. Ensure gov social projects, first try paying back SS, then cut Congressional pay, 1/2 current salary sounds about in line with the National income average do away with their healthcare/ retirement funds and they take medicare/ SS like the rest of the peons out here! And that money now on hand goes in SS and Medicare fund. Limit terms to no more than 2 and no lobbying afterwards! Ever! What alternative do you have at the moment to replace those naughty fossil fuels? Wind? Solar? Not sufficiently developed to carry national requirements at this time.
          My suggestion for removing corp donations 1$ of everyones taxmoney into a single fund divide it equally among all candidates they cannot raise( beg ) money for their campaign from any source nor can they put up their own! This should tell us who can handle money ! By all means that naughty Electoral College needs to be done away with That way California ( financial utopia) and NY has all the say so in how the country will be run , little communities have NO SAY SO IN THE GOVERNMENT why should they have a voice anyway?But open the border, allow felons to vote that is prefect. All those little communities allowed to pay taxes and they are getting all the freebies from the Gov. Right? Time for a CONVENTION OF STATES! 18 rafifications and working for more!

          All that BS you wrote translate to this: 45 Communist goals- 1963
          Every one of these goals below, Obama and all the rest of the Dems including you have been pushing on this nation, just disguise it and code it.

          IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
          Thursday, January 10, 1963

          CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS
          1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
          2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
          3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
          4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
          5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
          6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
          7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
          8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
          9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
          10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
          11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
          12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
          13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
          14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
          15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
          16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
          17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
          18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
          19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
          20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
          21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
          22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
          23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
          24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
          25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
          26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
          27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
          28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
          29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
          30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
          31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
          32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
          33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
          34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
          35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
          36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
          37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
          38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
          39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
          40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
          41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
          42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.
          43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
          44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
          45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

          You, Olivia, are hysterical. Most of your list above is the total opposite of what the Democratic party is pushing for. And Trump can’t accomplish a lot of his promises due to your damn Democratic party deciding it’s more important to get rid of him rather than try to work with him. Their main concern is to remove him to prevent him from “totally” draining the swamp and finding all the “crooks”.

        Diana, you want to know what the Democratic platform is? Just look at CPUSA.org (Communist Party of the USA) Their platform is exactly the same as the DNC platform. Today’s democrats are communist masquerading as Democrats because they know many registered Dems would switch party rather than support communism. Most of the registered Dems have no idea that they are supporting communism. Take a look at the “45 Communist goals”, entered into congressional records on Jan. 10th, 1963. Nearly sixty years ago. As you read those communist goals, reflect and see that every one of these goals is pushed by none other than the Democrat party. Pay special attention to goal #15 – Take control of one or both political parties. Well they go after the weakest party supporters, the ones who are the easiest to manipulate, Democrats.

        Thursday, January 10, 1963

        Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.
        At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

        21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

        31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

        44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

        #3 Obama constantly demanded that weakening our military is a show of moral strength
        #11 Obama and the Dems constantly pushing the UN and the “one world Government” agenda.

        I can go through each one, but see for yourself. This was written nearly 60 years ago and look at each and every one of these goals we see constantly on daily basis from the Dems. It’s crystal clear and undeniable what the Dems stand for today. Look they voted for a a guy with a muslim name who is a muslim and says so on his school records from Indonesia and likely his college records that are sealed from the public. A guy that was raised by communist supporters being Stanley Ann Dunhams parents and his father and his purported Idol, Frank Marshall Davis, Who by the way was a very prominent CPUSA activist (Communist party activist)Obama was raised and surrounded by communist people and every thing Obama pushed upon the American people was and is communist goals to destroy this nation.

          They left out one goal: dumb down the population , convince them to do away with history. ( They might see the mistakes of the past and not repeat them) Use any means needed to accomplish this. ( Marijuana?) And that ALL are ENTITLED to have everything another has without working for any of it! My neighbors son was excited he was gonna have history at 17 , his comment ” finally I get to find out what 9/11 was all about!” His history book started with 9/11!
          I’m 77 and have seen all those moves up close and personal, but then I also was taught real history!

            Actually #17 touches that.

            “17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.”

            Soften the curriculum. My girls are 14 and knew nothing of the US Constitution especially the Declaration of Independence. I happened to save my papers all the way back to 1rst grade. Reviewing the material discussed in classroom, we was learning history from First grade. Recite all the bill of rights and all the amendments as well as all the names of Presidents before leaving the 6th grade. Sad that I have to spend their time and mine educating them of geography and history while they waste their days away learning how to put condoms on cucumbers and constantly being told to be ashamed of their country and boys dressing like girls are normal and natural and not a mental illness at all, along with killing babies and ripping them from within their mother is a right but then claim that separating babies and children from their mom on the border is terrible.

    100% agree with you!!
    Everyone knows how the Democrats lie about everything.
    Of course Democrats are going for Impeachment, they think they are so smart by trying to fool people into thinking they aren’t going to try this, lol can see through them like a transparent window!
    Vote every Lying Democrat Out Of Office
    With their Nazi Mentality, they would use IRS against us if we speak out against them! Power Hungry Maniacs are what they are, we have no place in America for people like this!!

    Gotta laugh at that stupid reject Olivia commenting we are all brainwashed by the right and she lists the Dems supposed platform. Are you serious??? This is all the freebies the left spouts about but has no clue how to accomplish because none of it is realistic. But they think the bulk of America is as stupid as their base. Olivia, we are not stupid or brainwashed. We just don’t buy the lefts bullshit. The only people who believe anything you or Dems have to say is the dem base that wants hand outs and free stuff. You may fill their heads with shit but the majority of Americans know better.

    2020 Election is going to look much like these comments,
    More Conservative Comments and only 2 Communist Comments!!
    The only reason the Communist Votes Look like they have a percentage of votes is because the Democrat Communist committed Voter Fraud with their illegal registered voters!! 2020 will be watched much closer than the 2018 elections for Democrat Voter Fraud!!
    More AmericanConservatives will turn out to vote than the
    Mentally Insane Communist!
    Trump will win 2020!!!
