Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says socialism only 'part of what I am'

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says socialism only 'part of what I am'

Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez instantly became a national celebrity after she upset 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in last week's primary. Ocasio-Cortez represents a new wave of young, left-wing candidates having electoral success, inciting backlash among conservatives. The New York Times described her childhood home as "a modest two-bedroom house on a quiet street".

Newsmax host John Cardillo isn't the only Republican attacking Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

"They made a choice in one district", Pelosi said. Ocasio-Cortez also pointed out that Cardillo got the name of her alma mater wrong in his tweet; she attended Boston University, not the Ivy League Brown University. Alvarado viewed the campaign as an opportunity to document her "humble beginnings and run for office".

Soon afterward, Cardillo admitted flubbing Ocasio-Cortez's alma mater but added, "that said, you're not a girl from the Bronx".

At the same time, Duckworth said she believed if candidates "go too far to the left", they would lose in the Midwest.

The 28-year-old shared a photo of the worn-out shoes that she'd worn on the campaign trail - a pair of & Other Stories zip-up sneakers - which were discolored and cracked at the soles. She countered with small donations and shoe leather-a volunteer army who knocked on doors and leafleted at subways.

As the district has been under Democratic control since 1993, it seems likely that Ocasio-Cortez will be victorious come November's general election. And progressive challengers have fared remarkably well in primary battles. "I'm not trying to impose an ideology on all several hundred members of Congress, but I do think that once again it's not selling an -ism or an ideology or a label or a color". The party's operatives still advise caution in promoting bold ideas like Medicare for All, which can alienate deep-pocketed donors.

"What's this tell you about where the Democratic Party is going today?" he asked. "She embodied so much of what we wanted to accomplish". The contrast with Crowley wasn't merely about generation and identity; it was about clarity and boldness. "We were always naming what we wanted to accomplish".
