posted by Hannity Staff - 5.28.20

The Republican challenger hoping to take-on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York in the 2020 election abruptly dropped out of the race this week; blaming Governor Andrew Cuomo’s “draconian” shutdown for hindering her campaign.

“Scherie Murray, one of the Republican candidates challenging New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, dropped out of the primary race, saying Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s ‘draconian’ lockdown orders during the coronavirus pandemic prevented her from being able to campaign,” reports Fox News.

“It’s unfortunate, but what we’ve learned is the governor’s selective executive orders have really put a wrench into my campaign,” Murray said.

“He had the choice to change the election in ways for which it could have been a more democratic process, but instead he chose to leave portions of the designating nominating petition process open to challenges and unfortunately I succumbed to challenges from my opponent and the local establishment,” she added.

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.18.19

GOP Congressional candidate Scherie Murray slammed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Fox News Thursday; saying she knows “first-hand what it is to work hard” in the United States of America.

“Listen to the rhetoric… It’s disgusting and it needs to be dialed back. The conversation needs to be focused on policy,” said Murray.

“I love this country. I know first-hand what it is to work hard. My parents work hard up until today. It’s something that I don’t take for granted. I think that it’s a great opportunity for any immigrant to come to this country and be able to be here in the greatest nation in the world,” she added.

Murray unveiled her campaign against AOC Wednesday afternoon.

“Scherie Murray, a New York businesswoman who immigrated from Jamaica as a child and is active in state Republican politics, is launching a campaign Wednesday for the congressional seat held by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” reports Fox News.

“There is a crisis in Queens, and it’s called AOC,” Murray told Fox News. “And instead of focusing on us, she’s focusing on being famous. Mainly rolling back progress and authoring the job-killing Green New Deal and killing the Amazon New York deal.”

“Your representative in Washington chooses self-promotion over service, conflict over constituents, resistance over assistance,” Murray said in the video. “Queens and the Bronx needs someone who will create jobs instead of turning them away.”

“You deserve someone who will fight for you, not fight for the limelight. Someone who will build bridges, not burn them down. Join me,” posted Murray on social media.

Murray was born in Jamaica and moved to the United States when she was 9-years-old.

GOP challenger Scherie Murray slammed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on social media Wednesday; slamming the far-left legislator after officially kicking off her campaign for New York’s 14th Congressional District.

“AOC seeks celebrity & publicity. She thinks public service is not about serving the public, but herself. If you think you deserve better, then you’re just like me,” posted Murray on social media. “AOC chooses self-promotion over service, conflict over constituents, resistance over assistance. We need to build bridges, not burn them down.”


“Honored & humbled by the overwhelming support & enthusiasm today! We’re in this together. While AOC focuses on her celebrity brand & a politics of division, let’s #unitethefight,” she added. “There’s a crisis in Queens and it’s called AOC. She isn’t worried about us – she’s worried about being famous. That’s why I’m running for Congress”

Murray is a prominent Republican businesswoman in New York City who moved to the US from Jamaica at the age of nine.
