Fox & Trends with Carley Shimkus.

New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, currently one of the leading lights of the Democrats’ left-wing, is on a tour of the West coast-but above all, the avoidance of meetings with the region of Hollywood’s elites.

Ocasio-Cortez, represents the party of the democratic socialist wing visited the homeless areas on Los Angeles’ Skid Row neighborhood, and met with liberal activists.

But as it is kept low-dollar fundraisers, you has stars with glamorous events with high-profile Democratic donors and Hollywood.

The move has already raised an eyebrow, with The Hollywood Reporter asks: “Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is Too Far left for Hollywood?”

The outlet reported that it covered a number of “political activists” and “members of the industry – donor-class”, they all said that they were not aware of any meeting with her-while others she was not aware of, in L. A.

They also allegedly did not reach out to L. A. mayor Eric Garcetti.

Instead, they held an event with a $27-a-head fee, or $10 for students. The train of the line with your campaign-that was not supported by the democratic party, the machine, you will not receive considerable means, and still overturning expectations managed, as they beat the Democratic party of leg Rep.

While it took the support of Hollywood stars such as Susan Sarandon and Chelsea Handler, and has been in a whirlwind media tour, Ocasio-Cortez, has been prevented from doing so, to conclude, from the Democratic and Hollywood elites-in contrast to other key democratic figures like former President Barack Obama, or 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, both comfortable in such circles.

Also Sanders, with whom Ocasio-Cortez has allies, and occasionally dabbled in the Hollywood fundraising circuit, and this in spite of the promise not to give money from millionaires and billionaires. In 2015, he was welcomed at a campaign fundraiser at the Hollywood home of real estate broker Syd Leibovitch-where those who spent $2,700, or whoever raised $10,000 were invited to a “pre-event reception.”


She far-left issues, such as Medicare for all ” and calls for the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE.) You are a rising left wing within the party, which has only increased since the democratic-socialist sen Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., made a surprisingly strong primary challenge against the possible 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

But Ocasio-Cortez, a meteoric rise from the unknown candidate to the political celebrity has concerns of more mainstream Democrats about how their brand of hard-left democratic socialism is, outside of the left wing of the hubs of New York City and Los Angeles.

Joe Lieberman, the Democratic party candidate for Vice-President in the year 2000, in an interview with Fox News last month said that Ocasio-Cortez, ideas struggling to support to get across America.

“If I see someone that says really, she is a socialist-she is a very engaging, charismatic candidate — if you said to these policies, this policy is not supported in many places in the whole of America,” Lieberman.

The former President Barack Obama gave a long list of mid-term notes last week — a list, especially Ocasio-Cortez.

The nervousness is hardly reassured by the recent performances in the media. In an interview with “The Daily Show” tried to insert it, how would they Finance their agenda — the interview quickly went viral in the pleased to right-wing circles. They also got into trouble after Israel referred to the “occupation” of Palestine, prior to admission, she was “no expert” on the topic.

But in L. A., the enthusiasm for her only seems to grow. The Hollywood Reporter reported that an event with Ocasio-Cortez sold out quickly, with almost no marketing.

“You really inspired me, because she is so young and she is always so far,” said Melainey Jane Foerster, 16, a high school student from the suburb of Santa Clarita, told The Associated Press.

“She’s new, she’s a fresh voice and we have been missing that” Faith Eberling, a long-time San Francisco Democrat, told Politico.
