https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/aoc-to-lose-her-congressional-district-after-2020-census/
but it is nice to dream

They don't lose their seat, but they will see districts redrawn and could have two incumbents in one new district.

She (and 'Omar') lose their seat when a different democrat beats them in a primary.  All these wackos come from far-Left districts.

 :-D  8-) :-)

Thank you for this.  A republican can't win, but to run hard, present an alternative, work to change minds and close the gap is crucially important.  People said a Democrat couldn't be elected Senator in Alabama, but if the ruling party candidate is weak enough or the field is divided, you never know.

But she win or lose ----
Would it not be great for DJT to go and campaign in her district for her and America?

US Congressional races, Trump (and Pelosi) Nationalizes the House Race

First this, ccp regarding Rep. Ilhan Omar in Minneapolis:

  - Yes!  Minnesota the almost purple state, not her district the far Left city, is embarrassed of Omar.  When Trump fills Target Center downtown Mpls. with election excitement, he draws from the entire state and region.  Keep in mind that conservative western (swing state) Wisconsin is part of the Greater Twin Cities area and media market. 

The Twin Cities area includes two suburban Congressional Districts that flipped R to D in 2018.  Trump winning MN and Republicans winning back these two districts are closely related challenges.  Those supposed moderates joined with Pelosi, Omar, Tlaib and AOC on impeachment, resistance and policy.  That is not what voters were promised.  Meanwhile Trump brought peace and prosperity, not what they were told would happen if he was elected.  Trump's rise with suburban women, if true, flips these two seats and others like them possibly winning the House, also clinches the Presidency.  The Presidential race and the House races are deeply intertwined.

The city is also a great place to break the bond between blacks and Democrats. Omar can't be beat by a Republican conservative in a far Left district, and Trump won't carry California or NY, but every split between her party and the constituent groups they exploit for votes is a win.

The impeachment vote and the tear up of the speech frames the House contest.  Trump's ego says he has to be a great, two term President.  Greatness requires winning back the House, otherwise that loss is forever part of his legacy, as it was with Obama who lost his legacy.  Winning back the House negates impeachment and is needed to advance any agenda. It's a national race now.

Dershowitz : Schumer and Pelosi have to go

agree but we may get someone like a socialist next

best option
Republicans win back the House
in '20. and then pressure will be on Pelosi.

I don't know if either can be dislodged while both alive though - they and their mob are not just going to walk off into the sunset
They NEVER do

they have to be dragged out kicking and screaming
