Who is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?



https://www.npr.org/2018/...sio-cortez



ap_18178174410938_sq-b05045a36c85d2eb9d0f01ed7c4e463f2a09f2cc-s1200-c85.jpg

A May 2016 photo provided by the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez campaign shows the candidate during a Bengali community outreach event in New York.

In a stunning primary upset, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — a young socialist activist, woman of color and political newcomer — has unseated leading House Democrat Rep. Joe Crowley in New York's deep-blue 14th Congressional District.

Ocasio-Cortez, 28, a former organizer for Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign and a one-time staffer for the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, ran on an unalloyed leftist progressive platform, calling for a "political revolution" that includes Medicare and higher education for all, gun control measures, an end to private prisons and the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE).

Wow! Big Trump Hater Congressman Joe Crowley, who many expected was going to take Nancy Pelosi’s place, just LOST his primary election. In other words, he’s out! That is a big one that nobody saw happening. Perhaps he should have been nicer, and more respectful, to his President!

She's probably a little to the left of me, but sure. We need more who will fight back against Trump and his agenda.
This may be one of, if not the, most diverse congressional districts in America

I'm hoping it's an early sign that the voters are fed up with the same old people in office, and they are wanting new peeps in.

Maybe it will make other Dems work harder. I always vote for qualified women and people of color in local elections. The white guys are screwing up badly, why not give someone else a chance? Her opponent sent a surrogate to debate her saying he had scheduling conflicts. Big mistake, his loss wasn't even close.

Despite Crowley outraising Ocasio-Cortez by 10-to-1, her targeted campaign and aggressive ground-game were key. So, too, was her opponent's decision not to show up to debate her.

"This is the second primary debate in which Mr. Crowley was a no-show," according to a scathing New York Times editorial published last week. "A spokeswoman for Mr. Crowley said he had scheduling conflicts that wouldn't allow him to attend the two debates, inevitably leaving voters to wonder — what are we, chopped liver?"

We need Dems who aren’t afraid to stand up to trump. I have a good feeling she will inspire others to run for office. We need more strong candidates.

Pretty hilarious since the ground zero of their platform is - we need overflowing guns just in case we need to rise up and overthrow the government. LOL

Are there Dems strong enough for that?


Claire McCaskill Missouri's Democrat Senator has been trying to stay in good graces with the repubs of our state, and is voting with them more and more, because the election is coming up. I don't like turncoats. So I either vote for the repub Josh Hawley, who tried to protect our crooked Governor or I vote for Claire who is a dem, who is trying to buy repub votes with her vote.

And I'm tired of these people being in office for 20+ years.


I'm stuck with voting for Claire.
