Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is calling every major donor in his phonebook with an urgent message: I need money to keep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the sidelines!

Already, Schumer has built up a war chest of nearly $32 million to keep the young socialist out of a U.S. Senate primary.  But Schumer isn’t resting on finances alone.  He has cozied up to old socialist Bernie Sanders, supporting his $3.5 trillion (more like $5 trillion) tax and spending spree, while breaking his pledge to Senator Joe Manchin.

Unfortunately for Schumer, the Democrat agenda of higher taxes and irresponsible spending is deeply unpopular with the American people.  Inflation is soaring, businesses can’t find workers, and voters are finding it hard to make ends meet.

Unfortunately for America, Schumer doesn’t care about the economic concerns while his Senate career remains at risk.

Statement from NRSC Spokesman T.W. Arrighi: “Everyone knows Schumer is petrified of an AOC primary challenge, but now we’ve heard it from the horse’s mouth.  From begging wealthy liberals to write fat checks, to moving the Senate as far-Left as humanly possible, the Majority Leader is running scared to save his seat.  Unfortunately for him, AOC and her socialist allies will not be deterred that easily.”
