Ocasio-Cortez Says She Would Support Trump Impeachment

One reporter noted, "the Democratic Party is increasingly younger, more female, more diverse, more progressive", asking, "Should the Democratic House leadership look that way?" Her district is in part of the Bronx and part of Queens.

But nobody seemed to underestimate her chances more than Crowley, who is also the current chair of the Queens County Democratic Party.

"She is fighting for our community".

Raul Fernandez (COM'00, Wheelock'16), a Wheelock College of Education & Human Development lecturer, says that "while the political world is in shock, those of us who know Sandy best are beaming with pride, but unsurprised".

Now, Ocasio-Cortez is poised to become the youngest woman elected to Congress. Ocasio-Cortez is, herself, from the Bronx. And second, she needs to learn how to run in heels. In April, a secret recording was leaked, of House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer telling progressive candidate Levi Tillemann, who was running in Colorado's Sixth District, that he should get out of the race to make room for Jason Crow, the candidate favored by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday told "Fox and Friends" that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who just won a stunning victory in New York's Democratic congressional primary election, is the "new face" of the Democratic Party.

"The increased militarization and willingness to commit human rights abuses - we are at that point", she said.

"The community is ready for a movement of economic and social justice".

"A Democrat who takes corporate money, profits off foreclosure, doesn't live here, doesn't send his kids to our schools, doesn't drink our water or breathe our air can not possibly represent us", Ocasio-Cortez says as the video shows her riding the subway, speaking at a local event, and walking through the district.

The New York Times editorial page said that Ocasio-Cortez's victory was "a vivid sign of the changing of the guard".

Fernandez said she hasn't always had aspirations of holding political office, but she followed politics closely and had a passion for giving back and helping those around her. Fernandez said before the election, Ocasio-Cortez texted him and said that "it all happened so fast". Her campaign platform included abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Medicare for All, a universal jobs guarantee, and protection for Dreamers. She also supports immigration reform - specifically abolishing ICE, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency now enforcing the Trump Administration's family separation and detainment policies at the U.S. -Mexico border.

Ocasio-Cortez went to the border to protest the separation of children and families.

"For me, that was clear right away", Elmore said. She was unafraid of calling out corporatism and capitalism.

Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the Democratic Socialists, was not the only one left speechless by her defeat of 20-year incumbent Joseph Crowley, who dreamed of becoming speaker of the House. The first black woman to serve on the Boston City Council, Pressley, 44, is challenging Rep. Michael Capuano, 66, a 10-term incumbent in Massachusetts' 7th District. It's just that most people ignored her.

She also challenged the conventional wisdom that Democrats need to take massive donations from corporations in order to win. Earlier this month, Crowley sent a surrogate to debate Ocasio-Cortez instead of appearing himself.
