“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.”
