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.

So much for the Democrats to come together in New York, 14th constituency.

A feud Thursday erupted on Twitter between Democratic, socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and outgoing democratic Rep. Joseph Crowley — the longtime Congressman Ocasio-Cortez defeated the terrifying in New York in the primaries last month. The victor claimed the incumbent is now mounting a third bid.

“.@repjoecrowley said on live television that he would absolutely support my candidacy,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Thursday. “Instead, he stood by me for all of the 3 planned concession demands.”

The 28-year-old progressive Democrat, added: “Now, he is mounting a 3rd party challenge against me and the democratic party – and against the wishes of @NYWFP.”

Crowley, though, responds by saying that he is not actively challenging her in the General election by the New York Working families party, although he technically on the November ballot as a candidate for the party.

He tweeted that he was “honored to have their support,” but “I’m not running.” Crowley said it is not possible for him to be removed from the vote at this point, short of special circumstances.

“Alexandria, the race is over, and Democrats must work together tweeted,” Crowley. “I have my support for you and erase the fact that I don’t run. We have the scheduled calls, and your team has not continued. I would like to close, but I’m not ready to air complaints on Twitter.”

A lot of questions about the WFP line. Was honored to have their support. I’m not running. For the record, they can only be removed by the vote, if 1) you move, NY; 2) die; 3) be convicted of a crime, 4) to accept the nomination for a different office (in a place I don’t live).

Ocasio-Cortez faces Republican Anthony Pappas in November.

Crowley, the Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, was thought by some as a future speaker of the house of representatives before he was defeated by Ocasio-Cortez in the last month.

Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders trailer, which won for a long time, the abolition of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), had the endorsement of several left-wing groups, including MoveOn and the Democratic socialists of America (DSA).
