Ocasio-Cortez win strikingly like a 1972 trailblazing one

3 young progressives look to topple longtime incumbents in New York’s Tuesday primaries

"We won because we organized", Ocasio-Cortez said.

Also wrong were the Clinton supporters who made political hay out of characterizing Sanders supporters as "Bernie bros"-which is to say young, white men". Focussing on economic justice, Medicare for All, and the abolition of US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Ocasio-Cortez spent the final weekend of the campaign not ringing doorbells in her district but instead confronting ICE agents at a detention center on the Texas border.

Khanna, who had endorsed both Crowley and Ocasio-Cortez, argued that the young candidate's victory underlined the need for the Democratic party to double-down on progressive values.

In the run-up to Tuesday's election, Ocasio-Cortez, the daughter of a Puerto Rican mother and a father from the South Bronx, said, "What I want the party and people all over the country to know is that my campaign represents authentic, accountable racial and social justice".

Ocasio-Cortez was projected by the Associated Press to defeat Joe Crowley, who'd served in Congress since 1999, in New York's 14th Congressional District.

Ms Ocasio-Cortez posted on Twitter after Ms Gillibrand's endorsement that the NY senator "didn't even bother to talk to nor consider me before endorsing".

Harlow said the candidate was "clearly" accusing her party of dismissing and ignoring "factions of society", and she asked Ocasio-Cortez to specify which voters she meant.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez's claim drew jeers for using statistics from Mass Shooting Tracker, a website used by CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and others. "So I think it created a lot of trust in our community and our message really inspired a lot of folks that don't usually turn out in an off-year midterm primary".

Sanders himself cheered Ocasio-Cortez's victory, saying Wednesday on MSNBC's "Andrea Mitchell Reports" that progressive ideals are winning and "happening all across the country". "We've got people, they've got money", she said in her viral self-produced campaign ad.

Ocasio-Cortez ran on a platform to the left of her opponent - the No. 4 House Democrat and chairman of the House Democratic Caucus.

She relied on a people-powered campaign, small donors, energetic volunteers, and grassroots appeal.

Trump got just 20 percent of the vote in the district, which contains parts of Queens and the Bronx.

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

Bunkeddeko, meanwhile, has honed in on the fact that Clarke has not sponsored any legislation that has passed the House in the dozen years since she took office, telling Politico, "Honestly, with Rep. Clarke's zero track record of passing bills, it's hard to tell what she believes".

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. She will face Republican Anthony Pappas.

She put a down payment on that hope yesterday.

One thing that you certainly cannot say about Joe Crowley is that he is a sore loser. VA pick vows to oppose privatization Crowley stunner sets off new scramble among House Dems Progressives' wins highlight divide in Democratic Party MORE (I-Vt.).

"I always felt like we had a shot and that we had a possibility to win".
