Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Defeats Corporate Democrat in NY Primary

  • Ocasio-Cortez Dems need to be 'explicit' in their vision to win in midterms

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old political novice running on a low budget and an unabashedly liberal platform, upset longtime U.S. Rep. Joseph Crowley on Tuesday in the Democratic congressional primary in NY.

Progressive challenger Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez celebrates with supporters at a victory party in the Bronx after upsetting incumbent Democratic Representative Joseph Crowly on June 26, 2018 in NY. Her stunning upset over Crowley-a man widely touted as a possible successor to Nancy Pelosi-inevitably draws comparisons with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's June 2014 defeat by Tea Party candidate Dave Brat. He is also, as Queens County Democratic Party chairman, a significant political player in New York City who recently helped choose the city Council speaker.

Democratic strategists say Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - the 28-year-old who beat the longtime incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley - is a case study in the kind of insurgent Democrats who could lead a 2018 "blue wave".

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was the youngest challenger ever in the Democratic primary in NY. An early profile in the Intercept, she said, was "a game-changer", leading to more interviews and profiles that led with the audacity of her challenge, then got to her policies. "Oh my God, oh my God", she said as she realised she had won, her hands flying to her mouth and her eyes widening.

Democrats need to flip 23 of 435 seats to take over the House of Representatives, which would stymie much of Trump's agenda while opening up new avenues of investigation into his administration. You know, Pelosi's statement about the race today is very disappointing, and just shows the really problematic nature of the Democratic Party as an entity. I mean, I heard reports of canvassers going up into buildings.

"It's about making change in Washington", said Crowley, who in his leadership role has raised money for Democrats around the country. That includes putting an end to private prisons and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE).

Elmore was first introduced to "Sandy", by a friend who said, "She's the smartest person I know".

Joe Jackson Dies: Michael Jackson's Father Was 89
Joe Jackson is known for successfully managing the Jackson 5 as a group, along with the solo efforts of his Janet and Michael . Prince Jackson , Michael Jackson's eldest son, posted a lovely picture of Joe with some of his grandchildren on Instagram.

She also noted that the Democratic party has "an array of genders, generations, geography and the rest, opinion, in our caucus and we're very proud of that". "We've got people. They've got money", Ocasio-Cortez said in the ad.

The progressive left just fired a warning shot across the bow of the Democratic Party establishment. The narrator asks how someone who "doesn't live here, doesn't drink our water, doesn't breathe our air, can possibly represent us".

"She has been thinking about politics since she was a teenager. I felt like the only way to effectively run for office is if you had access to a lot of wealth, high social influence, a lot of dynastic power, and I knew that I didn't have any of those things".

In the Staten Island district of New York City, former Representative Michael Grimm failed in his comeback attempt against the incumbent Dan Donovan.

On CNN, Ocasio-Cortez spoke further about her opposition to ICE and the Trump administration's immigration policy, under which she said secretive children's detention centers are comparable to black sites run by the Central Intelligence Agency. But progressive commentators care less about the numbers game of the horse race and more about whether the party will move left.

District 14 covers parts of the Bronx and Queens, where census numbers show the population is almost half Hispanic - very different from when Crowley first took office 20 years ago, CBS2's Andrea Grymes reported.
