Conservative group launches Times Square ad campaign to boost AOC challenger Martin Dolan

The group is also set to spend tens of thousands of dollars on digital media campaigns slamming her on far-left policy.

With just days to go before the New York Democratic primaries, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's main rival, 66-year-old Democrat Martin Dolan, has received a boost from a Texas-based conservative group. The Job Creators Network has, in conjunction with the Keep America America Action Fund (KAAAF), paid for a billboard in Times Square to go after the incumbent and encourage people to vote for Dolan instead.  
The billboards attack Ocasio-Cortez over her record on crime, illegal immigration, defunding the police, and her numerous other far-left positions. She has represented New York's 14th District, which encompasses parts of Queens and Brooklyn, since 2019.  

"We're back, telling the TRUTH about AOC," KAAAF wrote on its donation page. "New York is hurting and AOC isn’t helping. This just isn’t working for NY-14. AOC is out of touch and she’s making things worse for NY-14. Rising crime is putting us at risk, illegal immigration is creating chaos on our streets, and sky-high inflation is killing our family budgets. Meanwhile, AOC is talking about herself on television and Instagram." 
"P.S. Too bad you pushed out 25,000 Amazon jobs 'cuz you're about to need one!" one of the billboards read, urging those who agreed to "vote Democrat Martin Dolan now!" 
According to the New York Post, Dolan had originally planned on attempting to unseat Rep. Jamaal Bowman, but decided in March to challenge Ocasio-Cortez instead, citing her far-left policies that he argued are harming Americans. 
In a statement to the outlet, the Job Creators Network called Dolan "a much-needed voice of moderation that will help small businesses and working families in New York City and beyond." 

Ocasio-Cortez responded to the billboards by poking fun at the fact they were installed in Times Square, not in her district. "D-Margaritaville," she quipped. 

This is not the first time the Job Creators Network has targeted Ocasio-Cortez. In 2019, it responded to her opposition to Amazon's planned move to the Big Apple via a billboard in Times Square. It cited the economic cost of her decision, adding, "Thanks for nothing, AOC!"
