'Abolish ICE' Socialist Newcomer Stuns Top Democrat with Primary Upset

Queens party boss Joe Crowley loses Democratic primary to Bernie organizer Alexandria Ocasio Cortez in stunning upset

CNN White House Correspondent Jeff Zeleny tweeted Tuesday, "The stunning defeat of @JoeCrowleyNY is a fresh reminder that one of the biggest political stories (getting far less attention than it deserves, with Trump consuming so much oxygen) is the major identity crisis underway inside the Democratic Party".

In fact, Crowley was so assured of his victory that he made what was perhaps his fatal mistake: He skipped two debates with the millennial candidate and on one occasion sent a surrogate in his place - moves which came across, naturally, as arrogant snubs to both his opponent and to voters. She has advocated for policies such as Medicare for All, a federal jobs guarantee and free college tuition.

"Congratulations to Maxine Waters, whose insane rants have made her, together with Nancy Pelosi, the unhinged FACE of the Democrat Party".

"What we're basically saying is that the structure of ICE - in a similar manner as the structure of the Patriot Act - is kind of built on a scaffolding of questionable civil liberties infringement and abuse", she said. Joseph Crowley in the House Democratic primary for District 14.

Pelosi says, "Nobody's district is representative of somebody else's district". "It is just a sign of the vitality of our party".

A viral Twitter post noted how less than a year ago Ocasio-Cortez was working in a bar in NY. "'I think there was a good deal of incredulity and some pretty severe criticism, ' Price said". "Something is happening, and the sooner the Democratic establishment realizes it, the sooner we can win in November".

The de-evolution of the Democratic party should be a concern to all of us, and not just the Pelosis of the country, who will soon enough be fighting for their own seats in Congress.

In one of the most brilliant stunts of political manipulation pulled off by those whose goal it is to replace the Constitution with sharia law, Islamists have managed to join that group (and it seems not to matter to progressives how violent or bigoted they are). "For Crowley to lose that election, that was a shocker", he said Wednesday.

Qualcomm is secretly working on Sanpdragon 1000 SoC for Windows 10 Desktops providing great performance with low power draw. ASUS "Primus", a device based on Windows featuring Architecting a Smarter World (ARM) is already in the production stage.

Political observers drew comparisons to Eric Cantor's loss in 2014, when the House majority leader was caught off guard by a tea-party-backed candidate in Virginia's Republican primary. Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy scoffed when asked the same question, boarding the subway train connecting the Capitol to the Russell Senate Office Building. "I want her to be victorious". "Because she was a person of color, representing me". The Californian's top lieutenants are Reps.

But Assistant Democratic Leader James Clyburn, R-South Carolina was ready with an answer.

"It blows leadership wide open", Mr. Connolly said. "What's your problem?" Mrs. Pelosi said. Her pitch to voters, he said, was "we need somebody who looks like me, a Latina who lives in the district". "So let's not get yourself carried away as an expert on demographics and the rest of that within the caucus or outside the caucus".

To his credit, Crowley was endorsed by a slew of elected officials and trade unions as well as liberal and progressive organizations such as Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, NARAL, Planned Parenthood, the Sierra Club, and the Working Families Party of NY.

"It is a tremendous opportunity for Democrats, absolutely", said Rep. Seth Moulton, Massachusetts Democrat. And then, once again, it's hard to predict what's going to happen over the next few months.

Polls indicate that Cuomo has a comfortable lead over Nixon.
