Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez now has a strong America First challenger in Tina Forte. Forte is running as a Republican in New York’s 14th congressional district.
According to her website, Forte is a small business owner who supports the police and condemns politicians like New York Congresswoman AOC and former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio who attack law enforcement.
A major part of Forte’s campaign is her focus on increasing funding for law enforcement and implementing better oversight to fire bad cops and reward good cops.
On top of that, she supports measures to lower healthcare costs and improve healthcare accessibility for all individuals. Her campaign is also focused on fully funding Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), while also pushing for measures that strengthen a border wall.
School choice is also on Forte’s agenda, as she wants to promote charter schools and vouchers as a way to foster more competition in the education sector.
In correspondence with BLP, Forte stated, “AOC is a communist sympathizer. She’s the darling of the Democratic Socialists of America – a Marxist organization that glorified Cuba’s Castro regime and Venezuela’s Maduro regime.”
AOC and her allies have killed New Yorkers with their bail reform and soft-on-crime policies, imprisoned us in our homes with lockdowns, ruined small businesses with shutdowns, violated our rights with mandates, and tortured children with masks for political science, not medical science. Enough is enough.
New Yorkers have suffered because these liberals acted like dictators drunk on power. They must be stopped and it starts with firing AOC.
In the last few weeks, Forte has been on a tear on social media.
On March 13, 2022, Forte tweeted, “Help me get these signs all over New York’s 14th Congressional District.

Forte is the challenger that is needed to make AOC sweat. In the current political environment we live in, there needs to be strong candidates who stand firmly against the Left. We can no longer afford to play nice with the radical Left. Turning up the heat and laying out an explicitly pro-America First platform is essential to making the America First message a reality.
