Nate Silver Claims Ocasio-Cortez’s Race and Gender Drive GOP ‘Crazy’

FiveThirtyEight editor-in-chief Nate Silver said Tuesday that Republicans do not like Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) because of her race and gender.

Silver made the remarks on Twitter, in response to a tweet by CNN political analyst Joshua Green. Green noted that Ocasio-Cortez was the most-talked about politician at a Republican gathering at the Trump International Hotel on Tuesday night.

“There are lots of reasons Ocasio-Cortez drives certain Republicans crazy, foremost among them her race and gender,” Silver tweeted. “But it’s also that she’s quintessentially a New Yorker and DC political culture is formal and prudish when NYC mostly isn’t those things.”

Kayleigh McEnany, the national spokesperson for the Republican National Committee (RNC), blasted Silver for his tweet, calling his claim “ridiculous.”

‏”Republican focus on Ocasio-Cortez has NOTHING to do with her race and gender and EVERYTHING to do with her crazy socialist views,” McEnany tweeted.
