Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez explains her shocking victory and takes shot at Trump

3 young progressives look to topple longtime incumbents in New York’s Tuesday primaries

"It is the youth, it is communities of color, it is activists, it is the base".

"If there was any doubt that their party has moved drastically to the left, Democrats just elected a self-avowed socialist over the current chair of the House Democratic Caucus", Republican National Committee (RNC) Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens wrote Tuesday.

One of the questions that Democrats are going to face after the November election, and whether or not they win back control of the House, is the extent to which they want to keep their leadership structure. "Perhaps he should have been nicer, and more respectful, to his President!"

Age isn't everything, of course.

In 2016, she protested against the Dakota Access Pipeline at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, which set her political career in motion.

Citing scheduling conflicts, he missed a debate in the Bronx with Ocasio-Cortez, sending former city councilwoman Annabel Palma as a surrogate. Patel and Ocasio-Cortez are also two of the almost 30 progressive candidates who have called for abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Boston University professor Raul Fernandez says the Bronx born grassroots organizer won because she knows her constituents.

Her rhetoric matched her agenda, promising a more inclusive vision for governance that would unabashedly confront social injustice. "We have organized", Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter as the polls closed. "We knew that if we talked to people that had never been engaged or invited to the electorate that maybe they would show up".

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is expected to earn his party's Senate nomination in Utah, while Chelsea Manning, who served seven years in military prison for leaking classified data, is a long shot in Maryland's Democratic nominating contest against incumbent Senator Ben Cardin. But if the party falls short "there will be new leadership throughout".

Twitter users are now calling her "Permit Patty". "I have no problem with enterprising young women", she told the publication. She also said the incident had nothing to do with race; it was only about the volume of their salesmanship.

"There is no such thing as being unassailable, in America", she said. Young, working-class, migrant communities in particular are leading a revitalisation of socialism in America, especially in the big cities. "They're all woven together".

As recently as November, Ocasio-Cortez worked as a bartender.

"Cuomo says there's nothing to see here, but that's part of the problem", she said. In 1992, 55 percent of the party also had a high school degree or less compared to 32 percent 24 years later.

Certainly we've seen so far this year that, particularly on the Democratic party side, there is an unprecedented number of female candidates who are running and have won primaries.

"It is their business model to push out black and Hispanic tenants", he said.

"I think that some of the issues we even have today may have to do with some of the calcified structures and relationships", she said. Cleaver has been in Congress since 2005. And then, once again, it's hard to predict what's going to happen over the next few months. They point out that black and Latino voters make up a majority in the district; Oscasio-Cortez is Latina while Crowley is white.

I wonder whether the Left in the United States needs to work on its relationship with trade unions.
