Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) still has plans to visit Kentucky despite one of her GOP colleagues walking back an invitation for her to visit his district.

A spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez told CNN on Friday that the congresswoman has since received another [invitation] to visit the state and plans to follow through on the offer.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Luckily, we still have open borders with Kentucky, we are free to travel there,” the spokesman, Corbin Trent, said.

“We hope to visit and have a town hall, listen to concerns of workers in Kentucky,” he added.

The invitation by Rep. Andy Barr (R-Ky.) was offered to Ocasio-Cortez so she could meet families to discuss the impact of her Green New Deal proposal. The invitation was rescinded when Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), a veteran, engaged in a Twitter battle about the congressman not voting to fund the 9/11 Victim’s Compensation Fund and over criticisms of controversial Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). 

In a letter to Ocasio-Cortez’s office, Barr said the invitation “to come to Kentucky to learn how the Green New Deal could impact hard-working Americans in eastern and central Kentucky” had been made “in good faith with the expectation that you too were interested.”

“But your recent comments about Congressman Crenshaw demonstrate a lack of civility that is becoming far too common in the U.S. House of Representatives,” Barr added.

Ocasio-Cortez shot back, saying she’d called Barr’s “bluff” and that Barr’s rescinded invitation meant “we’ve got ‘em on their back foot stutter-stepping.”

  1. Welcome to the bluegrass state. We have a strong 2A-supporting governor and population. Open carry is quite common, here. Some of our favorite down-home sayings include: “Don’t start any and there won’t be any”; “Smoke ‘em if ya got ‘em”; “Have a blessed day”; “Make America Great Again”.

    She will not be well-received.
