A top Democrat who was in line to succeed Nancy Pelosi as leader of the Democrats has just lost his primary in New York today, to a 28 year old no name.
He raised $3 million dollars and has ties to Democrat leaders and to Wall Street.
But all the money in the world couldn’t stop his opponent, Ms. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Bronx Latina who ran as a Sanders style “socialist”
Her campaign was essentially run online.
It's time for a New York that works for all of us.
On June 26th, we can make it happen – but only if we have the #CourageToChange.

Looks like the soul of the Democrats is now socialist.
Today I saw people voting that are almost never seen in an off-year midterm primary.
Just now, as I’m typing this with 8 minutes left, two young men of color, 20 years old, just walked up to me and said they just voted.
2 yrs ago, the “experts” told me not to bother with them.

The Primary was her hardest challenge. Beating Crawford was really her hardest challenge. Miss Cortez will easily win in this overwhelmingly Democrat district in November against a token Republican opponent. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York%27s_14th_congressional_district
The 14th Congressional District is one of the most liberal in America.
Crowley won his district in 2016 with 82.6% of the vote. The Republican who ran against him ran a close second against Mickey Mouse and Daffy Duck.
