Ocasio-Cortez Rips Right-Wing Personality Who Tried To Discredit Her

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is being hailed as the new face of the Democratic party after vanquishing Queens party boss Joe Crowley in Tuesday's primary, but one former co-worker isn't jumping on her bandwagon.

Speaking on Sunday, Ocasio-Cortez said while she believes her success can be mirrored in other districts, there is room in the party for candidates less left-wing than herself.

Ocasio-Cortez did return to the Bronx after graduating from BU, returning to the same apartment she lived in until age 5.

But Ocasio-Cortez said the label of democratic socialism did not represent her fully. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., won in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary.

Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez said in an interview on the "Bill Press Show" that Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is "the future of the party". "Aside from her winning one of the top spots and going to the [Intel International Science and Engineering Fair], she was just one of the most awesome presenters in all of the years I've been at Yorktown".

Alvarado said he attended social demonstrations, political events and went door-to-door with Ocasio-Cortez, as she met voters in her district. Growing up, it was a good town for working people.


Cardillo, Deace, and the others attacking Ocasio-Cortez keep talking about how glad they are that an open socialist is running for office so they can debate socialism honestly.

Ocasio-Cortez's response seemed to resonate with people on Twitter. "Your attempt to strip me of my family, my story, my home, and my identity is exemplary of how scared you are of the power of all four of those things", she wrote.

"My dad had a small family business in the Bronx, and the rest of my whole family stayed there", she said.

The 28-year-old Democratic Socialist was having none of it, however, and shot back at Cardillo, claiming that her mother "scrubbed toilets" so that she could live in a nice house.
