Democrat Refuses AOC’s Endorsement!

When it comes to an endorsement by far-left socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it’s “thanks but no thanks!” At least that is how fellow Democrat Tim Ryan feels, having brushed off AOC’s endorsement, saying that it would not be “helpful” as he vies for an open Senate seat in red-trending Ohio.

Ryan is a veteran House Democrat who has served alongside fellow AOC since she joined the lower chamber in 2019. However, Ryan, who is locked in a tough Senate race against Republican J.D. Vance in Ohio, is less than thrilled about the show of support that he received from the progressive New York lawmaker.

Ryan, who since 2003 has represented a congressional district anchored in northeastern Ohio, has barnstormed the state campaigning in areas that have not been friendly to Democrats in years — hoping to cobble together a coalition of traditional “rustbelt” voters while also attracting those who may be exasperated by standard politicians.

And the pledge of support from the liberal star wasn’t something that Ryan was looking for, or even wanted, according to NBC News.

“It’s not a helpful endorsement here,” the congressman told NBC. “Nor did I seek it.”

After the Supreme Court struck down the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision — which legalized abortion in the United States and afforded a constitutional right to the procedure — AOC wrote on Instagram last month that voters needed to vote for Ryan this fall, along with Senate candidates John Fetterman in Pennsylvania and Mandela Barnes in Wisconsin.

“We CAN do more to pursue these items more aggressively. And THEN, once we do, we can secure the W and turn out the vote for [Fetterman] in PA, [Barnes] in WI, and [Ryan] in OH this November,” she wrote at the time.

For much of his congressional career, Ryan opposed abortion, citing the beliefs of his Catholic faith.

But in 2015, Ryan publicly reversed course and expressed his support for abortion rights, a position that he further embraced after the high court’s recent ruling on the procedure, which he called “the largest case of government overreach in my lifetime.”

“By overturning Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court is gutting a long-established right in order to put politicians between women and their doctors,” he said in a statement at the time.

Ryan has called for abolishing the filibuster to codify Roe into law, a position that Ocasio-Cortez had gotten behind even before the court overturned Roe.

However, Ryan is still trying to shake off AOC’s support and is actually seeking to put some distance between himself and Washington Democrats as he seeks to win over voters in a state that has become difficult for the party.

But despite such efforts, it’s an uphill battle in with less than 100 days to the midterms in a year where Republicans are poised to make major gains in Congress.

  2. I want to know where in the Bible, or the Constitution, it says that ANYONE has the right to murder another human being!!! That is what they are doing, murdering their own child! If they would use contraception, or just keep their legs together, they wouldn’t be getting pregnant!!! Getting pregnant when they do not want to be, does NOT give them the RIGHT to use abortion as a contraception!

    Progressives have become more and more immoral, and evil over the years. Even so-called Catholics are going against the Bible. They are perversion personified!!!! They are trying to teach little children their evil, and it is WRONG!

    I believe that people have the right to live their life the way they want, but when you start shoveling your crap down the throats of others, that is where I draw the line!!! Being different does NOT give you more rights than anyone else!!! You do not have the right to force people to accept your ways.

    • Only if we could all come together on this issue.rape or incest and still borne in my opinion yes on abortion. But no on oh it was only a one night deal and this is going to ruin my life. Should have thought about that before. I don’t blame this all on women, the men are just as responsible if not more. I am a man and let me tell ya lady’s, just like I told my daughter’s and granddaughter’s. Men will tell you anything to get in your pants.Sorry about my bluntness. May God Bless us all! Again just my opinion.😶 wouldn’t it be nice if we could all discuss things. And live in peace. It’s a dream I know.

  3. Ohio voters may not have swung far enough left, since SCOTUS overturned RoeVWade. And, Being a Catholic, yet embracing abortion, might be less harmful than OAC. Who knows? I will be watching this race.

  4. Ryan ranted against the Supreme Court ruling overturning abortion. What did he think would happen? It was music to radical AOC’s ears. She could not help but endorse him. Hope her endorsement sinks his campaign.

  5. How stupid do you have to be to call reversing Roe v Wade “the largest case of government overreach in my lifetime”. Either he isn’t very old or he lacks wisdom. The Roe v Wade original decision is one of the largest cases of government overreach in the United States’ history; along with Obergefell v. Hodges. Restoring issues to the electorate to make decisions on is not government overreach. OH, do yourself a favor and put this fool out to pasture.

  6. Some people have said if I do not like high gas prices, open borders, inflation, crime ridden cities, CRT, keeping criminals out of jail, green energy, etc. Somehow, I am an idiot. I guess running a red light, pretending to be a woman and using the girls bathroom, showing an ID to vote, staying in lockdown forever because Dr. Delusional Fauci said so, or the more delusional Biden said so, wanting to keep jobs in America, energy independence, carrying a gun legally so the government and criminals cannot hurt citizens, steal, loot, start fires, attack police and citizens, in peaceful protests, allow illegal immigrants to take our food, jobs, houses, and only Joe and the others know what else. Then maybe those people are part of the build back better project.

  7. STOP calling these traitors “lawmakers” they are “Lawbreakers” which has surfaced, in grand style, by nancy pigliosi and her criminal crooked husband! how does one enter office making $174,000 a year and end up with $100 million+? It is called selling influence and insider trading! These top dogs are criminals and should all be in prison! Oh, and pay back the tens of millions to the taxpayers from whom they stole the money!

  8. It was smart of him to avoid AOC’s Endorsement…..HOWEVER, we don’t want nor need a BIDEN VOTING DEMOCRAT IN OUR CONGRESS LIKE TIM RYAN, We need A freedom fighting REPUBLICAN like J.D. VANCE TO FILL THIS SEAT, PERIOD!

  9. Tim Ryan (D) votes for all of O’Biden’s and the Democratic Communist Party’s radical left wing policies! If you want a politician who is in favor of the current policies that are destroying our country, Ryan’s your guy. But if you liked the policies President Donald Trump had in place, vote for J. D Vance (R).
