The NRA Seems Terrified Of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez In New Video

Queens party boss Joe Crowley loses Democratic primary to Bernie organizer Alexandria Ocasio Cortez in stunning upset

She says Ocasio-Cortez's win over 10-term U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley shows voters are eager to retire establishment politicians in favor of progressives.

Mr Crowley had not faced a challenger from his own party in 14 years in the mostly ethnic minority district, which covers parts of the Bronx and Queens in NY.

Ocasio-Cortez ran defiantly to the left of Crowley - who holds the fourth highest position in the House Democratic leadership - and she is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America.

Less than a year ago, Ocasio-Cortez was working as a bartender to help support her working-class family.

She never doubted her chances. When Lynch was the U.S. Attorney, she did nothing to crack down the corrupt court system even though the problems were well known to just about anyone active in NY politics.

"To me", she explained in a recent interview, socialism "is about direct representation and people actually having power and stake over their economic and social wellness...it means guarantee [ing] a basic level of dignity".

"Joe is a great guy, but I don't think he paid enough attention to those constituents at home", he said Wednesday morning.

She is expected to win the blue district easily in November.

A radical 28-year-old former Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer stunned the political world by defeating longtime powerful Democratic incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY14th).

"We saw these numbers coming in, we couldn't believe it". "But it has been there, and I think hopefully from it comes a lesson for us that those points of view that she represented in her campaign, and others represent, including me, they need to be factored in and incorporated and part of our overall message".

But Vahedi, who lived on Ocasio-Cortez's dorm floor freshman year ("Warren Towers, 16B"), was not surprised by the political upset.

Mr. Crowley has been an outsized personality on Capitol Hill and was seen as a contender to succeed Nancy Pelosi as leader of the House Democrats.

At BU, Ocasio-Cortez was president of Alianza Latina, BU's largest Latin American student organization.

Trump got more good news elsewhere in New York City as Grimm failed in his political comeback attempt at the hands of the Trump-backed incumbent Donovan.

Following her victory on Tuesday evening, Bernie Sanders said: "She took on the entire local Democratic establishment in her district and won a very strong victory".

"I think that the election of Donald Trump was a real game changer and I think we can throw out the old playbook", Nixon said Wednesday. Ocasio-Cortez asked her fellow students that day, according to BU's student newspaper The Daily Free Press.

In a weekend op-ed published in The Salt Lake Tribune, Romney wrote that the Trump administration's policies have exceeded his expectations, but he pledged to "continue to speak out when the president says or does something which is divisive, racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, dishonest or destructive to democratic institutions". Republicans target her as the national image of a Democratic Party of coastal elites, while some in her own party use her as a symbol of the ways party leaders are out of sync with an increasingly diverse, progressive electorate.
