Lorena Garcia isn’t the only Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wannabe challenging Colorado incumbents in the 2020 election.
Former State House Speaker Crisanta Duran is also styling herself to be like the hipster socialist Democrat by copying the New Yorker’s cuckoo Green New Deal in challenging not-nearly-as-socialist Democrat Diana DeGette.
Garcia, who is challenging Republican U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner in a long-shot bid, was first to leech onto the bill to kill farting cows and eliminate air travel.
Duran wants everyone to know she can be more radical than DeGette, bragging in every interview that comes her way that she hearts the Green New Deal, and climate change will be her top issue in challenging the entrenched incumbent.
DeGette’s spokeswoman said her boss is “aligned” with the goals of the green deal to prevent (what may or may not happen in 30 years because of) climate change.
DeGette has yet to actually sign onto the Green New Deal, but we’re guessing the race is now on to see who can run furthest to the left with Ocasio-Cortez.
The winner might get a cameo appearance in the new
super hero comic book series coming out this May, entitled: “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force: New Party, Who Dis?”
Josh Blaylock, the founder of Devil’s Due Comics, told ABC News the series will provide “intelligent, unique commentary on current events in a way that only the comic book medium can.”
And that about sums up the new Democratic Party in Colorado, it’s a narrative that can only be captured in a comic book.
