Ocasio-Cortez win strikingly like a 1972 trailblazing one

Ocasio-Cortez win strikingly like a 1972 trailblazing one”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn't just a force to be reckoned with because she took on a 10-term congressman from New York's 14th Congressional District and won.

She raised more small-dollar donations than any other New York City congressional candidate. Here, a graphic supporting her from the organization's New York City chapter. "This whole campaign started because the Bronx and Queens deserves leadership that is accountable to people over profits, and dares to pursue the most ambitious plan possible for our children's future".

I was happy to see an antiwar Democrat beat the establishment Joe Crowley in NY.

More than 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometres) away in deep-red Utah, former Massachusetts Gov. Romney defeated little-known state Rep. Mike Kennedy, who questioned Romney's conservative credentials and ability to work well with the president.

During her campaign, she criticised Mr Crowley on his ties to Wall Street and accused him of being out of touch with his increasingly diverse constituents.

Pundits are questioning whether Ocasio-Cortez's upset spells trouble for Pelosi, but Thompson said her fate hinges on the November elections. "Listen, I do not know the district".

Ms Ocasio-Cortez posted on Twitter after Ms Gillibrand's endorsement that the NY senator "didn't even bother to talk to nor consider me before endorsing".

Ocasio-Cortez wants to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and believes there should be a "clear" path to citizenship for unauthorized immigrants. "I think people were really energized by Alexandria's victory last night and really excited about the prospect of our campaign and our campaign winning".

"She's far left", Noah said.

SNELL: Pelosi told reporters Wednesday that she is certain that progressive politics and democratic socialism in particular are not ascendant in her party. "You're talking about a district that's probably in the top 5% of the most liberal districts in the country". She noticed that Celler, who was first elected in 1922, didn't spend much time in his Brooklyn district, and he was 84 years old.

Ocasio-Cortez is a Bronx native, member of the Democratic Socialists of America, and former campaign organizer for Sen.

"We can't write trend stories at this point when one thing has happened", one senior leadership aide tells TIME.

Ms Ocasio-Cortez is now one of 130 women who have won primary elections for US House seats, 80 percent of who are Democrats. I think we do well when we have candidates that match the districts that they represent. Virtually every cell phone and house phone in the district was called, thousands of doors were knocked on, and multitudes of subway riders were greeted by campaign workers and the candidate herself.

But the demographic peculiarities of the race did not detract progressives from their confidence in what they saw as the election's broader philosophical crux: that Democratic voters seem ready for a change.
