New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ran away from Rich Valdes’s debate request at the Puerto Rican Day Parade on Sunday, according to the potential Republican challenger.

Ocasio-Cortez allegedly “literally ran” away from her potential Republican challenger Rich Valdes at the National Puerto Rican Day Parade on Sunday.

Valdes tweeted that he tried to “politely introduce” himself to Ocasio-Cortez during the parade and hoped to “invite her to debate the issues.” He said that instead, she “cut her handshaking short” and “jetted to the other side of the street,” the New York Post reported.

“She literally ran!” Valdes told the NY Post.
