Hillary deals stunning body blow to Jamaal Bowman but AOC’s calling in the cavalry

Embattled “Squad” member Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) is fighting for his political life and one of his party’s really big guns just endorsed his primary opponent.

The loose-cannon leftist lawmaker and notorious fire alarm puller was already being clobbered in the polls by his more moderate opponent George Latimer and that was before he landed the blessing of failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Wednesday.

“With Trump on the ballot, we need strong, principled Democrats in Congress more than ever,” Clinton wrote on X, formerly Twitter. “In Congress, @LatimerforNY will protect abortion rights, stand up to the NRA, and fight for President Biden’s agenda—just like he’s always done. Make a plan to vote by June 25th!”

The Westchester County executive is running as a pro-Israel candidate, looking to appeal to voters who are turned off by Bowman’s childish antics as well as his association with his fellow “Squad” members, a pack of yappy shoot-from-the-hip women, several of whom like Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) are virulent anti-Semites who act like Hamas are their real constituents.

For all of Mrs. Clinton’s faults – and there is a boatload – she’s never been accused of being a Jew-hater and her endorsement is another boost for Latimer who also recently scored the nod from popular former Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY) who strongly criticized Bowman’s anti-Israel sentiment.

Hillary may have added her clout to Latimer’s campaign but Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is calling in the cavalry.

The “Squad” leader is leveraging her star power and is mobilizing all communists and anti-Semites for a frenzied get-out-the-vote effort to save Bowman’s hide and bringing in mentor, crypto-commie codger Bernie Sanders to help.

Comrade Bernie took a shot at the powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) lobby which has taken the fight to anti-Semites in Congress.

“AIPAC, funded by right-wing billionaires, supports extremist Republican candidates. They will spend $100m against progressives this year, including $25m against @JamaalBowmanNY,” Bernie said in a call to his supporters to turn out in force for Bowman.

It’s unclear if Omar and Tlaib will be there too.

Whether the late push from AOC and Bernie will help offset Hillary’s endorsement remains to be seen but a just-released poll showed that Bowman is down by 17 points with the primary less than two weeks away. He’s going to need all the help he can get.
