    AOC will not run for Senate in 2024, spokesperson says


    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., will not primary Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., in 2024.

    Lauren Hitt, Ocasio-Cortez’s spokesperson, told POLITICO Sunday that the representative is “not planning” on a Senate run.

    “She is not planning to run for Senate in 2024,” Hitt said. “She is not planning to primary Gillibrand.”

    Gillibrand, who took office in 2009, announced her re-election bid in January amid speculations she could face a primary challenge from more left-wing member of her party in the deep-blue state.

    “I know it drives everybody nuts. But the way that I really feel about this, and the way that I really approach my politics and my political career is that I do not look at things and I do not set my course positionally,” Ocasio-Cortez told CNN.
