BU Alumna Wins Upset Congressional Primary in New York City

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Wednesday that she would support impeachment for President Donald Trump if she is elected to Congress in November.

Democrats noted that Crowley is their only House incumbent to lose so far this year, compared to several in the GOP.

Shapiro said she is a member of the "howling at the moon branch of the Democratic Party" that "throws out radical proposals" and then claims "moral clarity lies in making proposals that are completely untenable and never will be paid for". "I knew that it was long odds, and I knew that it was uphill, but I always knew it was possible". "They can lock down every big donor and every key endorsement and they can still be beaten, because people still vote-and there is still some democracy left".

"What remains to be seen, though, is whether Democratic leaders will embrace these newcomers or see them as a threat", the paper wrote.

These races echoed the divide in the Democratic Party that was highlighted by the primary race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, a breach which has only intensified since the 2016 election.

Ocasio-Cortez quickly took to Twitter to say she has "no idea" who Lopez-Pierre is - and denounce his bigotry.

Up until now, it seemed like Democratic incumbents had been insulated from the anger and energy that has coursed through the political left during the Trump presidency.

Ocasio-Cortez ran on a strong left-wing platform, including support for universal health care and a federal guarantee of jobs.

"Women of color are the backbone of the Democratic Party, and our leaders should be representative of the voters we're trying to reach", Litman said.

The latest Democratic upheaval carried echoes of a political shocker four years ago, when the number two House Republican Eric Cantor was ousted by a little known Tea Party-backed conservative named Dave Brat.

Other progressive candidates challenging incumbent Democrats in the congressional primaries on Tuesday failed to topple their opponents, but their strong showing demonstrated that the Democratic establishment in NY is weaker than previously supposed. The Californian's top lieutenants are Reps.

Asked if Democratic leadership should be more reflective of a party that is increasingly diverse, progressive and young, Pelosi replied: "I'm female, I'm progressive - so what's your problem? What's your problem?" Mrs. Pelosi said.

"If a Democrat in this district can't champion those policies, where can they?" he said. "So let's not get yourself carried away with demographics and the rest of that, within the caucus or outside the caucus". But if the party falls short "there will be new leadership throughout".

"It is a tremendous opportunity for Democrats, absolutely", said Rep. Seth Moulton, Massachusetts Democrat.

Elmore was first introduced to "Sandy", by a friend who said, "She's the smartest person I know". So it's no anomaly that Ocasio-Cortez, a Latina woman, and Ben Jealous, an African American man, are carrying the torch into high-profile general elections. 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.

President Trump read a different message into the vote.
