Democrats may try to do away with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's seat in Congress, according to the New York Post.

The newspaper, in an editorial posted Sunday, noted her political action committee, Courage to Change, is supporting a slate of seven House candidates.

Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat, noted in a Friday tweet: "It's time to elect a progressive majority in Congress accountable to strong, grassroots movements that push support for issues like Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, racial justice, & more. It's time to elect public servants with the Courage to Change."

And she was recently quoted in The New York Times as saying: "I think my ambition right now is to be a little less lonely in Congress."

However, the Post said that "she may not last in Congress: Already in hot water for refusing to pay dues to her caucus' fundraising arm, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, she's now devoting her resources instead to defeating Democrats.

"Don't be surprised when the established Democrats who'll control redistricting after the 2020 Census do their best to eliminate her seat."

Meanwhile 13 candidates have registered to take on Ocasio-Cortez in November — eight Republicans and five Democrats.
