Ocasio-Cortez: 'A lot of districts' are like mine

Alexandra Ocasio Cortez on the

In a 24-hour span, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went from a relatively unknown political newcomer to one of the faces of the Democratic Party.

Ocasio-Cortez, who was previously an organizer for Senator Bernie Sanders, made abolishing the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency a cornerstone of her campaign, and the #AbolishICE talking point has quickly become popular among progressive voters.

Soon afterward, Cardillo admitted flubbing Ocasio-Cortez's alma mater but added, "that said, you're not a girl from the Bronx". Republicans typically exalt people who are financially successful, so it's not clear why this would be a problem for them. It'll take a minute.

On Monday, Ocasio-Cortez weighed in, mocking Fox News while confirming most of Hannity's claims.

Her victory-and that of Ben Jealous for the Democratic nomination for governor of Maryland, as well as down-ballot candidates like Summer Lee and Sara Innamorato this past spring-also put the lie to the mainstream media's charge that the insurgency begun by Sanders was "flailing", unable to translate his popularity into victories in the primaries. 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.

"She was wonderful", Blueglass said.




Yesterday, conservative TV host John Cardillo, who hosts Newsmax's "America Talks Live", tweeted a picture of Ocasio-Cortez's purported childhood home in Yorktown Heights.

Ocasio-Cortez tells a variation of that story all the time, and for good reason. Crowley is head of the Queens Democratic machine, so powerful that he hadn't had a primary opponent in years, and he outspent her 10 to 1.

Roosevelt, a Democrat and former NY governor, was not a member of the Socialist Party, but that didn't stop his critics from calling him a socialist and even a communist during his time as president.

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

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.

Ocasio-Cortez's brother's description differs from photos of the houses tweeted by Cardillo: "I owned & sold that home".
