Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez takes down the Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, in a stunning primary result and the reaction and analysis on ‘Fox News @ Night” by Mark Penn, former pollster and adviser to President Clinton, and Derek hunter, editor at The Daily Caller.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a former campaign organizer for Bernie Sanders, pulled off a stunning surprise in New York City on Tuesday with a victory against U.S. Rep. Joseph Crowley, D-NY, as a king-maker and all, but shoo-in.

Crowley, 56, a 10-term incumbent from Queens and fierce Trump-basher, was a constant fundraiser for fellow Democrats, and was interpreted by some as a future speaker of the house of representatives.

The defeat of the left is not clear, possible choice in the house, in order to succeed U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., as the party leader.

There are times that Crowley’s campaign in New York, 14th constituency showed signs of weakness. The editorial in the New York Times page, after his loss, reported that he ran a lackluster campaign that bordered on indifference. The paper noted that he had considered this, his opponent only once.

Ocasio-Cortez, 28, of the Bronx, is a member of the Democratic socialists of America and a low-budget campaign, where she was delivery in terms of financial, by an 18-1 margin.

“We have our country on autopilot and we have to accept what happened,” she told Refinery29 earlier this month. “And what is happening in this country is indicative that we need a new leadership. We need new leadership in the Democratic party, and we need new leadership in the country.”

To your questions the expansion of the Medicare program to help people of all ages and the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). You recently went to bolt, Texas, to protest against the policies that have separated the parents from their children at the U.S.-Mexican border.

“We beat a machine with a movement, and that is what we have done today,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “Working-class Americans want a clear champion and there is nothing radical about moral clarity in 2018.”

The online Portal Slate over their victory, when then-House majority Leader Eric Cantor, the Republican, lost to unknown Dave Brat 2014. The publication noted that now there was no clear successor to Pelosi in the event of the party, the house, again.

“In the short term, Pelosi may have crossed another potential contender from your list, but the bigger picture may not wrote be good for the existing democratic leadership structure,” Jim Newell in slate. “Crowley, for all his power gathered, just got to the mantra of the generation change. This provides an argument for Pelosi’s critics in the conference, that the rest of the guide is to follow.”

Politico wrote that, although a competitor Pelosi was defeated, Ocasio-Cortez, a “reminder of the generations-demands for change at the top of the party hierarchy,” and your victory is likely to send a shiver through the fashion wing of the party rates.”

Pelosi ties were seen, the injured may be able to keep some of the Democrats’ bid for the seat. To do not support In Pennsylvania, Democrat Conor Lamb sworn Pelosi for speaker, and won a special election in a deep-red district, the President of Trump wore in 2016 and by 20 percentage points.

The National Republican campaign Committee celebrated the defeat of the “poor Joe Crowley.”

“House Democrats, in the hope of a post-Pelsoi era, are now said with the left guide is loose,” NRCC spokesman Matt Gorman. “The only person happier today than Nancy Pelosi, the NRCC is in the evening.”

Pelosi, for her part, Crowley as “an unwavering fighter for America’s working families is referred to in nearly two decades”, which brought basic, unifying, and future-oriented leadership to the historic challenges of the Trump Administration”, as the Democratic caucus Chairman.

“I welcome Chairman Crowley for an impressive legacy of performance, the completed for the people in New York,” Pelosi. “I would like to congratulate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to win.”
