Lipstick Worn by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez During Debate Sells Out

Lipstick Worn by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez During Debate Sells Out

After winning the Democratic primary in New York's 14th congressional district last week against 10-term Rep. Joe Crowley-who was expected to succeed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went on a whirlwind media tour, explaining democratic socialism to Stephen Colbert, Stephanie Ruhle, and Ali Velshi-while promoting the campaigns of other progressive challengers. Claiming that the NY congressional candidate had lied about her past as being one which saw her grow up in the Bronx, Cardillo attempted to discredit Ocasio-Cortez by saying that she had also lied about her alma mater.

But Cardillo's argument-echoed by places like the Daily Mail-misses something fundamental about Ocasio-Cortez's message. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., won in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary.

"Alexandria's victory was just a remarkable reminder of the depth that we have in the Democratic party", Perez said, adding that Democratic success in this year's midterm elections will be built on candidates who tailor their campaigns to their states and districts.

The 28-year-old shared a photo of the worn-out shoes that she'd worn on the campaign trail - a pair of & Other Stories zip-up sneakers - which were discolored and cracked at the soles.

"She did the hard work", Duckworth continued. She represents the future of our party.

N Korea continues to be a nuclear threat: Pompeo
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday that North Korea remains a nuclear threat, but defended Trump's previous comment. Seoul shut down the industrial park in 2016 in retaliation for the North's ballistic missile and nuclear tests.

Attempts to reach Ocasio-Cortez were unsuccessful.

Cardillo is staring right at the essence of Ocasio-Cortez's message, but he still can't see it.

Ocasio-Cortez is a dues-paying member of Democratic Socialists of America's New York City chapter, which recently called to "abolish prisons" and "abolish profit". "What we did is we changed who turns out", noting that many Millennials voted for her.

That last one was so good it elicited a response from Ocasio-Cortez. Your attempt to strip me of my family, my story, my home, and my identity is exemplary of how scared you are of the power of all four of those things.

According to the Democratic congressional candidate's website, she attended a public school in Yorktown growing up because of the "state of the Bronx public schools in the late 80s and early 90s".
