Democratic congressional nominee and self-proclaimed “Democratic Socialist,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has agreed to debate her Republican Congressional opponent, Dr. Anthony Pappas.
According to a press release from the Pappas campaign, the debate has been arranged and will be hosted by Queens Latino, a local spanish-speaking newspaper. The debate is tentatively set to occur at a school auditorium.
Pappas, who is an Associate Professor in Economics and Finance at St. John’s University’s Peter J. Robin College of Business, plans to confront Ocasio-Cortez on her endorsement of socialism.
“‘Professor vs Student’ of economics, this debate will offer the first glimpse of the major party candidates as they go head-to-head in the November 6th general election,” the release said.
In an interview with the Daily Wire, the campaign stressed that the Pappas — who is running for his first time — is a “moderate, independent Republican who is the alternative to the socialist candidate.”
