New York Represenative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went to San Antonio on Feb. 12 to campaign on behalf of Jessica Cisneros and Greg Casar — two Democrat candidates running for congress in Texas.
The “Get Out the Vote” rally took place at the Paper Tiger event venue days before early voting kicked off for the 2022 Texas primary elections.
Outside the event, demonstrators gathered on opposing sides of the street to speak out against — and on behalf of — Ocasio-Cortez.
Opponents waved American flags, Trump flags, and raised signs that read “Don’t AOC My Texas” and “AOC make cocktails great again.”
Several supporters donned T-shirts featuring the Ocasio-Cortez’s signature logo.
Elad Eliahu was on the ground to speak with those gathered outside to discuss the efficacy of progressive policies, the possibility of Texas turning blue in forthcoming elections, and concerns over possible communist and Marxist influence among Democrat candidates.
