28-year-old who scored historic primary election victory seeks 'generational change'

Rep. Joe Crowley upset in stunning NY Democratic primary loss

The New York City district he represented has grown increasingly Hispanic, and Democratic women have also outperformed men in primary contests this year.

She criticized the stratification of New York City, one of the most expensive cities in America, and tied it to the entrenched politician Crowley.

"She is fighting for our community". Bernie Sanders supporters certainly hope it does: Ocasio-Cortez was an organizer for his 2016 presidential campaign.

Another young, insurgent candidate waged a less flashy campaign than either Patel or Ocasio-Cortez, but still made waves in his district.

On CNN, Ocasio-Cortez spoke further about her opposition to ICE and the Trump administration's immigration policy, under which she said secretive children's detention centers are comparable to black sites run by the Central Intelligence Agency.

She ran on a progressive platform.

.

Her victory should encourage both of them-and add a few more worry lines to Andrew Cuomo's forehead.

Her pitch to voters, he said, was "we need somebody who looks like me, a Latina who lives in the district".

Trump pulls support from Republican immigration bills after weeks of supporting them
For the past week, Trump has demanded changes in USA immigration laws and encouraged Congress to act with urgency. Even before votes began, Trump complicated GOP efforts to round up votes.

"Sandy is brilliant-she is boldly curious and always present", he says.

She has repeatedly rejected the supposed divide between economic concerns and "identity politics", a frequently invoked diagnostic tool for Democratic races, as a false dichotomy.

She came back to the Bronx after graduating and pivoted to working as an educational director with the National Hispanic Institute, helping high schoolers "expand their skillsets in community leadership and social enterprise", according to her website. This time a year ago, she was working as a bartender in the Bronx.

A top member of the US House's Democratic leadership has been blindsided by a fresh-faced candidate who beat him in a NY election despite raising one-tenth as much money - and who is now a standard-bearer in the ongoing struggle over the party's identity. There have been eyes on Ocasio-Cortez's campaign from the time she announced her candidacy previous year, and along the way, she secured major endorsements from the likes of MoveOn and Cynthia Nixon, who's running for governor in NY.

In a campaign video, she said her mother is from Puerto Rico, and father from the South Bronx. "She demonstrated once again what progressive grassroots politics can do". She also supports immigration reform - specifically abolishing ICE, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency now enforcing the Trump Administration's family separation and detainment policies at the U.S. -Mexico border. She recently went to Tornillo, Texas, to protest against policies that have separated parents from their children at the southern USA border.

Ocasio-Cortez went to the border to protest the separation of children and families.

"It was clear that no one else was going to do it", she said. She took no corporate donations.

Now, she just unseated a 10-term incumbent congressman previously on track to lead the Democratic Party in the House of Representatives. "Vote her next, Massachusetts'". Like, people usually avoid apartment buildings, but her staff was actually climbing stairs to knock on multiple doors instead of waiting for the elevator. She called out Crowley for his Washington-insider status and seemingly-cozy relationships with major real estate developers and Wall Street.
