AOC: ‘So What’ If I’m Just a One-Term Congresswoman?

"Let's say I challenge this whole power structure and they hate me, and they decide they are going to mount a smear campaign..."

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) addressed the possibility that she may be just a one-term congresswoman during an Instagram live video posted on Wednesday.

“Let’s say I challenge this whole power structure and they hate me, and they decide they are going to mount a smear campaign and challenge me in 2020 and I’m just a one-term congresswoman. Right, let’s say that’s the worst-case scenario. So what?” Ocasio-Cortez said. “So what, because I think and I hope that we’re showing that fearlessness can make a lot of change, really rapidly.”

The “power structure” that Ocasio-Cortez is currently challenging the most at the moment is the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), over the committee’s decision to “blacklist” firms that work with primary challengers.

Could these comments from Ocasio-Cortez suggest that she fears the DCCC will run a primary challenger against her in 2020?
