  • Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

The political newcomer, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who was working as a server in a NY restaurant just nine months ago, is a former volunteer for Bernie Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign and comes from a Puerto Rican family. In 2018, big money political support is morphing from a political asset into a downright liability.

The 28-year-old democratic socialist, whose primary victory over 10-term congressman Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) shocked the public on Tuesday, made the remarks during an interview with CNN.

Democratic leaders carefully parted ways with her on Wednesday on her support for Medicare for all, and the elimination of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

"To put this in some perspective", he explained, "Joe Crowley has been there since 1998, he was thought to be the next Democratic leader in waiting potentially a speaker of the house here, he runs the Queens county democratic party in the old sense of the word". The Hill's Latina Leaders spotlights 2018 candidates Dem who defeated Crowley to sit down with Colbert on Thursday MORE (D) in a NY primary race.

If she wins, she will become the youngest ever woman elected to Congress.

Kawhi Leonard may soon be in middle of longtime National Basketball Association rivalry
Is LeBron James set for a move to the Los Angeles Lakers? As far as I'm concerned, LeBron James is big-time player. And if they can also add Kawhi Leonard or Paul George , adding solid complementary pieces will be even easier.

Pundits are questioning whether Ocasio-Cortez's upset spells trouble for Pelosi, but Thompson said her fate hinges on the November elections. "I think what, really, we need to focus on is making sure that we are advocating for the policies to win in November", Ocasio-Cortez said.

Struggling for words, the politician who won nearly 60 per cent of the vote, said: "I can not believe these numbers right now, but I do know that every person here worked there butt off to change the future of the Bronx and Queens".

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had been a volunteer in Bernie Sander's presidential campaign.

Harlow asked whether Ocasio-Cortez saw herself as a Democrat or a progressive.

"She answered the call", he said, adding that people who know her are "collectively beaming with pride".

Washington State QB Tyler Hilinski had CTE, parents say
The interview comes alongside the debut of a new Sports Illustrated documentary about the family's search for answers. Was that the only thing that attributed to his death? "I don't know", Kym Hilinski said in the documentary .

Until 2013, the district was mainly comprised of middle-to-upper class Manhattan and Queens neighborhoods before being shifted more toward Pelham and the South Bronx.

She raised more small-dollar donations than any other New York City congressional candidate.

"I was really motivated", said Daniel Puerto, 26, who immigrated to the US from Colombia.

Certainly we've seen so far this year that, particularly on the Democratic party side, there is an unprecedented number of female candidates who are running and have won primaries.

Ocasio-Cortez got her first taste of professional politics while working for the late Senator Ted Kennedy on immigration casework and foreign affairs. She will face Republican Anthony Pappas. What we hope for in the party is a healthy debate between that tension of experience and renewal, and I think we're starting to see that debate right now.

5 suspects in custody in connection to teen's slaying at bodega
Horrid video of the incident shows the attack and then Lesandro trying to run to the hospital, which was just a few blocks away. Three of the suspects were picked up in Paterson, New Jersey and two were picked up in the Bronx, officials report.

"There is no such thing as being unassailable, in America", she said. Back when Ocasio-Cortez went by the nickname "Sandy", she had a reputation for being involved and motivated, Sullivan said. "She is likely to be in headlines for years to come", the Times summed up, describing the outcome as "the most significant loss for a Democratic incumbent in more than a decade, and one that will reverberate across the party and the country".
