Sean Hannity Tries, And Fails, To Attack Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Mitt Romney to enter Congress as Democrat veteran suffers shock defeat

Ocasio-Cortez worked with Detroit-based production company Means of Production, founded by Democratic Socialists of America activists, to create the spot for less than $10,000.

Not only was Crowley a Washington power broker, but he was one of the most influential Democrats in New York State, controlling the Democratic Party in his home borough of Queens and directing much of the internal Democratic politics of New York City.

She grew up in the Bronx.

"I was excited for her and I felt obviously a real bond there", Holtzman said. "It's one in which no person is too poor to have the medicines they need to live", she told Vogue. "At some point you say who is representing us and she decided she could", said Raul Fernandez. "It's not just one district", Ocasio-Cortez countered on CNN.

Ocasio-Cortez graduated cum laude in 2011, studying economics and worldwide relations.

Ocasio-Cortez got her first taste of professional politics while working for the late Senator Ted Kennedy on immigration casework and foreign affairs. "We were very clear on our message, very clear on our priorities and very clear about the fact that even if you haven't voted before, we are talking to you".

Things changed for Ocasio-Cortez when her 48-year-old father died of cancer in the middle of the 2008 recession.

"We talked to people throughout the Midwest, visited Flint, Michigan; and finally ended our trip with a stay at Standing Rock", she said, referring to the protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota.

Ocasio-Cortez faces St. John's professor Anthony Pappas (R) in November.

UK euroskeptics urge PM May to prepare for 'no deal' Brexit
Recent polling shows a stubborn split among respondents - though there appears a slight tilt against Brexit. Saturday marked two years since Britain voted 52 to 48 per cent to quit the 28-nation EU.

Mr Crowley, 56, now the powerful chairman of the House Democratic Caucus who was seen as a potential future House Speaker, was unseated by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a socialist who is nearly half his age and was a volunteer in Senator Bernie Sanders' 2016 Presidential campaign. "I wasn't born to a wealthy or powerful family".

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with the NY gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon. She ran on a platform of Medicare for All, abolishing Ice and a federal jobs guarantee. She went to Texas to see conditions at immigrant detention centres near the border. Ocasio-Cortez asked her fellow students that day, according to BU's student newspaper The Daily Free Press. She advocates for housing as a human right and says on her campaign website that she is in favor of expanding the Low Income Housing Tax Credit, which provides tax incentives to encourage developers to build affordable housing.

The top spokesperson for the Republican National Committee made several embarrassing comments Tuesday night, revealing she doesn't understand how primaries work, and paid the price by being mocked mercilessly on social media.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday that Ocasio-Cortez's surprise win represented "a choice in one district" and was not representative of a larger movement within the Democratic Party. "Vote her next, Massachusetts'".

Crowley's loss to a Democratic socialist was considered a shocking defeat.

Still, Pressley doesn't exactly mirror political newcomer Ocasio-Cortez's race this week.

Tuesday night, Holtzman couldn't help but think of that moment as she watched Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pull off an equally implausible victory.

Voters in her district responded by giving her almost 60% of their vote, despite the mainstream news ignoring her and her opponent outspending her 18 to 1.

What's next for Ocasio-Cortez?
