Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – Huge Progressive Win?

 

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s energetic and disciplined campaign for over one year has beat the odds. Her opponent thought he was up by 31% but the amoung of connection to the voters in Queens and the Bronx unseated a popular ten term Congressman Joe Crowley. He was the fourth most powerful leader in the Democratic Party, so this is a very big loss for the “Establishment Democrats” and will certainly not make House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi happy.

During the campaign, Alexandria was quite open with her Progressive platform and embraced the fact that she is a Democratic Socialist and would gladly educate voters and the media that would continue to question whether a Democratic Socialist can win and the proverbial questions about whether “America is ready for a Socialist” questions.
