Socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is set to square off with her Republican opponent in the coming weeks; setting the stage for a philosophical debate between the self-described Democratic Socialist and a former economics professor.

Cortez will face-off against GOP candidate Dr. Anthony Pappas; a former Associate Professor in Economics and Finance at St. John’s University in New York City.

“‘Professor vs Student’ of economics, this debate will offer the first glimpse of the major party candidates as they go head-to-head in the November 6th general election,” said a press release from Pappas’ campaign.

“Pappas is adamantly opposed to [socialism] because it is not an economic model that has worked in world history,” the campaign told the Daily Wire. “She is far away from any rational plan of action or solution.”

“Ocasio-Cortez is relying on a ‘make the wealthy pay for it’ scam which was shown to raise only $2 trillion for her spending spree,” added the campaign.
