Crowley, who had his eyes on a Democratic leadership post, raised more than $3 million for the primary in New York's 14th congressional district, with a donor list that read like a NASDAQ ticker; Ocasio-Cortez had just north of $300,000. The veteran Democrat was beaten soundly by fresh-faced 28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democratic Socialist.

In November, Ocasio-Cortez will face Republican Anthony Pappas, a St. John's University professor who teaches economics and finance.

What a shame. I hope that she doesn't shy away from the strong antiwar positions she first campaigned on when she takes office. "Here in NY, the progressive revolution has begun, and we could not be more proud to be a part of that movement", she tweeted.

She recently applauded Hamas terrorists who called for the murder of Israeli civilians while violently trying to break through the border as "engaging in political expression".

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi responded to Rep. Joe Crowley's loss, telling reporters Wednesday that every district is different and that she carries the qualities her party values in order to lead the Democrats in the chamber.

Out of nowhere comes Ocasio-Cortez, who deftly used Crowley's establishment status against him. "Our median income is around $47,000 a year, we're about 70% people of colour. It is not to be viewed as something that stands for anything else", she said.

Ocasio-Cortez doesn't need to win the nation, just #NY14, one of the most liberal districts in Congress.

At this point, the 14th District-which spans from the southeastern and eastern portion of the Bronx to part of north-central Queens-is half Latino, 16 percent Asian, and 12 percent Black, but only 18 percent white, making it thoroughly ripe for nationally oppressed representation. People he believes feel abandoned by the Democratic Party establishment. "But I think from day one we have had violations of the emoluments clause with the presidency".

Harlow questioned her on whether DHS is really managing "black sites", and the congressional candidate said she used that term because members of Congress do not have free access to the facilities. She has also expressed solidarity for Puerto Rico, still recovering from Hurricane Maria.

In the video, Stinchfield referred to Ocasio-Cortez as someone who "openly despises the very system that makes America the greatest country in the world".

"I don't think there is that kind of divide", Clyburn said when asked about the tension between the two wings of the party.

Recently, roughly 200 Democratic lawmakers were before a federal judge this month, arguing the hotel and Trump Tower in NY serve as emoluments violations.

Voters in her district responded by giving her almost 60% of their vote, despite the mainstream news ignoring her and her opponent outspending her 18 to 1.

A trio of young progressives are attempting to beat three longtime Democratic incumbents in NY on Tuesday, something no challenger has done so far this primary season.

"When we know children are kept and human abuse rights are happening without any sort of transparency or accountability, that is where we're at right now", she said.
