To boomerang on the Democrats ” blue wave?

Joe Crowley, who may be in line to replace Pelosi, lost his primary, Junior Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Ed Henry has the story for ” Special report.’

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D – Calif., on Wednesday trivialize appeared the impact of the Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez overwhelming victory in New York on the 14th constituency, namely, the voters went for the left–the left of a candidate in a district and the result was not shown by the seismic shift in the media.

“The fact that in a very progressive neighborhood in New York, it is more progressive and (incumbent Rep.), Joe Crowley is a progressive — but the left, Joe Crowley, for example, that the district,” said Pelosi. “It is not regarded as something that stands for everything else.”

Crowley, the loss to be considered a Democratic socialist, was a shocking defeat. He had already as a candidate for speaker if the Democrats retook the house in the November mid-term elections.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday told a rally in Fargo, N. D. that one of his “biggest critic, a sloppy husband, Joe Crowley, got his ass kicked by a young woman who had a lot of energy.”

Trump seemed to be satisfied with the Tuesday evening to lay the first results, and tracks dead on the promotion of Pelosi and Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., as the faces of the Democratic party.

Pelosi was asked on Wednesday about the Republican idea that socialism was in progress, in their party and they denied the theory.

“It is the ascendant in the district, maybe. I don’t want to accept any characterization of our party brought to you by the Republicans. So let me reject this right now. Our party is a big tent, our districts are very different, one of them said to the other,” she said.

The problems Ocasio-Cortez, also ran the expansion of the Medicare program to help people of all ages and the abolition of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

“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 editorial in the New York Times, page said that Ocasio-Cortez was the winner of “a living sign of the changing of the guard.”

“What remains to be seen, though, is whether Democratic leaders will embrace the “newbies” or see them as a threat,” the paper wrote. “This can determine whether or not the Democrats are able to take back the house of representatives in November.”
