"Joe Crowley is a very valued member of Congress, a great gentleman, as you saw in the dignity of his concession last night to Alexandria (Ocasio-Cortez)", she said. She had street cred as a former Bernie Sanders organizer, and was endorsed by New York's premier progressive celebrity, gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon. Prior to her congressional run and following her graduation from Boston University with a degree in economics and worldwide relations, Ocasio-Cortez worked in the office of Sen.
It was the first defeat of the primary season for a Democratic incumbent.
Despite Crowley's loss, the governor, who is up for reelection later this year, reportedly said the only "common denominator" was "an activated Democratic Party". Crowley was heavily favored in the small NY district, but the underdog came out on top. She won the primary with 57.5 percent of the vote in a largely ethnic-minority district.
Ocasio-Cortezs politics are substantially to the left of most of the party, and even Sanders.
"ICE was just established in 2003 in the same sweep of legislation as the PATRIOT Act, the AUMF, the Iraq War, and so what we're basically saying is that the structure of ICE.is kind of built on the scaffolding of questionable civil liberties infringement and abuse", said Ocasio-Cortez.
"I understand he hasn't been challenged for 14 years", Ocasio-Cortez said, "but that doesn't mean that an election isn't happening".
While the move reeks of arrogance, his confidence was not unfounded-Crowley out-raised Ocasio-Cortez's campaign by a 10-1 margin ($3,350,000 vs. $300,000), and, as noted by the latter, Ocasio-Cortez's name failed to even receive credit in much election coverage.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's shocking upset is the surest sign yet that the Democratic Party's future lies in its left flank-and in challenging capitalism head-on.
In an interview with left-wing journalist Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept published June 12, Ocasio-Cortez called the riots orchestrated by Hamas-the U.S-designated terrorist organization in control of Gaza-"political expression". She went on to describe her platform, promising to work for Medicare for all, tuition-free public college, a federal jobs guarantee, and criminal justice reform.
"Sandy's friend introduced her as 'the smartest person I know, '" Elmore says. In other results, Hyderabad-born Indian-American civil engineer Aruna Katragadda Miller came up short in an effort to win the Democratic ticket in Maryland's sixth congressional district abutting Washington DC. In districts and states where the Democratic Party holds an overwhelming advantage, the power of ideas can indeed overcome the power of money.
Ocasio-Cortez has been a member of the Democratic Socialists of America and organized for Bernie Sanders' 2016 campaign.
