  • Bill de Blasio and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Crowley-who is the fourth-most powerful Democrat in the House-was defeated by the 28-year-old community organizer and first-time candidate Ocasio-Cortez.

Now she's being asked about running for president.

"Young socialist upsets King of Queens", the paper continued, while proclaiming Ocasio-Cortez the "vanguard of the Democratic Party". "And I think that that's a very important distinction", said Ms. Ocasio-Cortez on NBC's "Meet the Press".

This is 100% true and I also have 600 unread text messages on my phone. The two women advocated for Medicare for All and framed their agenda as being concerned with the needs of working class Americans instead of the corporate powers from whom their centrist opponents have received donations. It'll take a minute.

After the exchange, Cardillo invited Ocasio-Cortez to appear on his show. Ocasio-Cortez would be just one of millions of millennials who came from an upwardly mobile middle class and then couldn't sustain that level of economic success.

Democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of NY even became the first person in the Senate to call for the abolishment of ICE, just after Ocasio-Cortez's victory. Many have declared her too liberal or too radical for mainstream politics, including establishment leaders like Senators Nancy Pelosi and Tammy Duckworth, who have warned against voters getting "carried away" with such dramatic shift to the political left. Not everyone is happy about how the attention moved toward her-not toward them-but the ones who realize what's happening, they're absolutely excited. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) 2016 presidential campaign, have won primaries for federal-level legislative seats, and the group has propelled dozens of candidates to victories at the state level this year.

London served three terms in Congress as a member of the Socialist Party, representing New York's 12th Congressional District, from 1915-19 and 1921-23.

"I didn't go to Brown or the Ivy League".

Cardillo is staring right at the essence of Ocasio-Cortez's message, but he still can't see it.

John Cardillo, in response to the fierce rebuttal, said that he stood corrected about Ocasio-Cortez's alma mater, but continued to insist that the NY Democratic candidate was not being wholly truthful about her past.
