Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says socialism only 'part of what I am'

Ocasio-Cortez Stirring people’s hopes and a nightmare for the Establishment

Ocasio-Cortez represents a new wave of young, left-wing candidates having electoral success, inciting backlash among conservatives.

For her part, Ocasio-Cortez has the absolute flawless response to these claims, saying, "Working-class Americans want a clear champion and there is nothing radical about moral clarity in 2018".

There are over 60 Justice Democrats nationwide. Ocasio-Cortez also pointed out that Cardillo got the name of her alma mater wrong in his tweet; she attended Boston University, not the Ivy League Brown University. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., won in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary.

Ocasio-Cortez and Cardillo did not immediately respond to request for comment. Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old member of the Democratic Socialists of America, scored interviews on Meet the Press and the Late Show With Stephen Colbert, and has inspired a whole bunch of op-eds wondering what her lefty campaign portends for the future of the Democratic Party.

Ocasio-Cortez also spoke to the generalizability of her strategy on NBC's "Meet the Press," saying, "I think that there are a lot of districts in this country that are like NY 14 that have changed a lot in the last 20 years and whose representation has not".

Attempts to reach Ocasio-Cortez were unsuccessful.

"We talked about going all-in for AOC a year ago", Trent said.

"I have three kids, two of whom are daughters".

"Pretty much!" she tweeted.

Alvarado said he learned of Ocasio-Cortez's campaign in June 2017 after seeing her posts on Instagram.

Progressives nationwide are applauding the wave of left-wing victories in a number of Democratic primary races-and warning that centrist Democrats who dismiss the growing nationwide enthusiasm for candidates who refuse corporate money and support bold proposals like Medicare for All and tuition-free higher education, do so at at their own peril.

On Twitter, the reaction was mixed, with some supporting Cardillo and suggesting that Ocasio-Cortez had misled people by playing up her Bronx roots (her campaign bio states she went to school 40 minutes from the Bronx, where her father was a business-owner and many of her family members lived) while others criticized Cardillo for attempting to discredit the political newcomer and her socialist credentials.
