New York (77 WABC) – US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez moved quickly to avoid potential Republican challenger Rich Valdes as they both marched on Fifth Avenue yesterday during the National Puerto Rican Day Parade. Valdes was invited to march with the Guardian Angels by their founder and 77 WABC radio host Curtis Sliwa. Sliwa watched the encounter unfold and explained that Ocasio-Cortez turned away from Valdes when he approached her to introduce himself. Sliwa saw AOC turn and run uptown on Fifth Avenue ahead of her delegation just to get away from him.
