Remember, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also wrote her own winning ad

Today, she ousted 10-term incumbent Rep Joe Crowley.

Chardo Richardson, the primary challenger to U.S. Rep. Stephanie Murphy of Winter Park, hasn't gotten much traction so far - but the Democratic Party's biggest new star, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, made sure to endorse him after her stunning victory in NY on Tuesday night. Knowing he was beaten, Crowley, a guitarist, strummed "Born to Run" and dedicated it to her. The Crowley campaign spent upward of $3 million in the Democratic Party primary.

Ocasio-Cortez's victory could be a sign of a generational divide among Democrats as younger voters push the party to the Left. He wielded money power. "There's a radical empathy that she has with people".

"Sandy is brilliant-she is boldly curious and always present", he says. Perhaps more critically, Ocasio-Cortez won on a campaign putting forward the sort of left-leaning ideas that until very recently many Democrats considered fringe.

Raul M. Grijalva, Arizona Democrat and co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, said her victory pulled back the curtain on a growing political trend of voters rewarding bold liberal messages.

Alexandria's win underlines the importance of primaries and the need to engage the Democratic base.

But that pressure needs to increase. By aggressively campaigning for climate change policy reform. They may have been foreshadowing an escalation of insider pushback before the full DNC decides on rules in late August. In April, a secret recording was leaked, of House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer telling progressive candidate Levi Tillemann, who was running in Colorado's Sixth District, that he should get out of the race to make room for Jason Crow, the candidate favored by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. But if the party falls short "there will be new leadership throughout".

Lionel Messi equalled a long-standing Diego Maradona record but is still yet to score a goal in the World Cup knockout stages. It is normal and logical to be dependant on such great players. "That is an additional factor".

Colombia through to last 16 with 1-0 win, Senegal out
Colombia and Japan go on to play opponents from Group G - either England or Belgium, who play later Thursday. Colombia had it all to do to book a spot in the last 16, with Senegal only needing a point to advance.

Ocasio-Cortez also told Colbert about her democratic socialist agenda, explaining that she believes "no person in America should be too poor to live". "It is not to be viewed as something that stands for anything else", she added.

Others in the party, like rising star Rep. Joe Kennedy, D-Mass., simply blamed the unpredictable nature of elections.

"She was a fresh face, she tapped into a lot of the new energy that's out there and I think that's what happened in Joe's district as well", he said. Plus, Sanchez angered Democratic leadership when she said in an interview a year ago, "I do think it's time to pass the torch to a new generation of leaders". No wonder young people's support for the party has been eroding. "So what's your problem?" the Democratic leader responded.

"Most of her votes, her strongest support, was from areas that were not predominantly Hispanic", Romalewski said. "In just two years, it dropped sharply from 55 percent to 46 percent".

Picking candidates tuned to the district is what a winning party does.

Ocasio-Cortez attended public school 40 minutes north of the Bronx in Yorktown.

Clyburn, like Pelosi, insisted that Crowley's defeat did not result form the simmering tensions between the mainstream wing of the Democratic party and those who fashion themselves in the mold of Sen. They are republished from a number of sources, and are not produced by MintPress News.
