    Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) hasn’t taken office yet, but she’s already looking to take out fellow Democrat Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), according to a report Tuesday. Ocasio-Cortez, who shocked the political world when she defeated veteran Queens Rep. Joseph Crowley, said last month she’d support challenges to Democrats who are not as left-leaning as their constituents. Politico reported that she’s recruited an African-American woman to challenge Jeffries in 2020. A source told the news website that running a primary rival to Jeffries, who represents parts of Brooklyn and Queens, was the “highest priority” for Ocasio-Cortez. Jeffries was recently elected the...

    Mitt Romney, the weak sister who was so badly beaten verbally by Ex-POTUS, Obama & CNN POTUS Debate Moderator, Candy Crowley in 2012 went "Rogue" on POTUS, Donald J.

However, he is not to be blamed for his hate & blabber...he is just plain hateful, envious, dumb & weak. Case closed!!! The folks that really deserve blame are the idiot, buffoon voters in the state of Utah that elected this fool, moron, Romney, to a U.S. Senate Seat. Actually if they had...

    **SNIP** "I am like, 'hey, we are fighting for universal care, for tuition-free public college, we are fighting for a living wage,' and you see that kind of defense mechanism kind of come down." But in America at large, such politics are pretty radical. She is a Democratic Socialist in the vein of failed 2016 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, on whose campaign she worked. Ocasio-Cortez has compared the fight against climate change to the fight against Nazi Germany in World War II, calling it a "major existential threat" and has likened electing Democrats to ending slavery. The right has branded...

    Six days before the election, flyers have turned up in Queens urging voters to support Rep. Joseph Crowley over Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — who stunned the political world in June by defeating the veteran congressman in the Democratic primary. Crowley, who remains on the ballot as the candidate of the Working Families and Women’s Equality Parties, says he has no idea who’s behind the flyers and doesn’t want people voting for him. “Not running. Not campaigning. Shut down campaign operations months ago. Not circulating fliers. To whoever is: knock it off. Focus should be on electing Democrats to Republican seats....

    **SNIP** Crowley has formed a state campaign committee “Joe for NY,” and is holding a fundraiser Oct. 29 at the Fitzpatrick Grand Central Hotel in Manhattan, where the maximum suggested donation is $10,000. According to an email sent to “Irish Americans & Friends Crowley” by Walter Swett of the firm Dynamic SRG, who is the Crowley committee’s campaign treasurer, the group was “established to position Joe for future opportunities in public service.” **SNIP** The IrishCentral website recently floated Crowley’s name for statewide office, noting that, “While white ethnic Catholic no longer plays that well in Queens, it is a powerful...

    The Democratic side of Congress is almost certainly going to look a little different after the midterm elections this year, as a result of the success of women and minority candidates in primary contests. Race by race, they've begun to make inroads into the traditional white and male establishment of national politics. The victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the Democratic primary against New York Rep. Joe Crowley -- a ten-term incumbent and the fourth highest-ranking Democrat in the House -- has been a beacon for other outsider progressive women and minorities trying to defeat entrenched Washington incumbents. **SNIP** Massachusetts' 7th...

    US Representative Joe Crowley, who just two weeks ago lost the Democratic Party nomination for New York’s 14th Congressional district to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in dramatic fashion, looks set to remain on the November ballot as the candidate for the Working Families Party. Oops. **SNIP** New York’s election laws do not allow the WFP to remove Crowley from its ballot line. Nor is Crowley allowed to simply remove himself. The only option is for Crowley to somehow make himself ineligible. Or die. Crowley (somewhat understandably) is reluctant to do this. Having achieved the most dramatic primary win of the season and...

    Mediaite ^ | 8/17/2018 | Ken Meyer
    Democratic New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez decided to ban the media from her latest town hall event with constituents. Ocasio-Cortez has been conducting a “listening tour” throughout the 14th district to talk with local residents about immigration, healthcare, and various other issues. However, according to the Queens Chronicle, Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign refused to allow any TV or newspaper reporters into her last event in Corona, Queens. Campaign spokesman Corbin Trent said the ban was the campaign’s response to an incident last week where Ocasio-Cortez met with healthcare activist Ady Barkan, and the two of them were “mobbed” by journalists despite...

    Democratic Congressman Joe Crowley, who lost to 28-year-old Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in their June primary, said migrant children being held in custody by the Trump administration should be compensated. 'The damage that has been done to these children will be life long,' he said at a press conference at the Capitol on Wednesday. 'In fact, I suggest they need to be compensated for what this administration did to them.' **SNIP** Crowley is on the ballot for the Working Families Party and explained Wednesday the procedure to get his name removed is too complicated.

    Former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) is urging voters in the general election to vote for Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) instead of Democratic nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who upset him in the party primary. "Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s surprise primary victory over Rep. Joe Crowley seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party. It doesn’t have to," Lieberman wrote in an op-ed published Tuesday in The Wall Street Journal. ADVERTISEMENT "Because the policies Ms. Ocasio-Cortez advocates are so far from the mainstream, her election in November would make it harder for Congress to stop fighting and start fixing problems." Lieberman noted that...

    Rep. Joseph Crowley, D-N.Y., tried to ease the tensions between himself and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the insurgent Democrat who defeated the 10-term congressman in last month’s primary, after she bashed the incumbent last week for not getting his name off the ballot in the general election. “I don't want to take anything away from her win,” Crowley said Sunday on CBS News’ “Face The Nation.” “I did not do as I preached. I didn't remind folks of my accomplishments. I just took that for granted I think.” Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter on Thursday accusing Crowley of purposely staying in the race,...

    So much for Democrats coming together in New York’s 14th congressional district. A feud erupted Thursday on Twitter between Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and outgoing Democratic Rep. Joseph Crowley -- the longtime congressman Ocasio-Cortez shockingly defeated in New York’s primaries last month. The victor claimed the incumbent is now mounting a third-party bid. “.@repjoecrowley stated on live TV that he would absolutely support my candidacy,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Thursday. “Instead, he’s stood me up for all 3 scheduled concession calls.” The 28-year-old progressive Democrat added: “Now, he’s mounting a 3rd party challenge against me and the Democratic Party- and against the...
  • Vanity - Crowley polling had him up 36 points on Ocasio-Cortez - NY TIMES.

    Interesting tidbit via the NY times revealing that Democrat, Congressman, Joe Crowley's internal polling revealed the he was up 36 points over his challenger, Democrat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Of course we all know the fifteen point "political slaughter" that befell the stunned, Joe Crowley, last Tuesday evening, in the 14thNYCD. One of Democrat, Nancy Pelosi's, favorites, Joe Crowley, received a most crushing blow in his defeat handed him by Ms. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I tried to search the internet for pre-primary election polls, but came up empty, even on "Real Clear Politics" site. It appears the Fake News" pollsters scrubbed their numbers...

    As a Christian, I hope that each of us gets better than we deserve. And I pray that Americans don’t fall for politicians like the one that just bobbed up to the surface, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A photogenic socialist, she won the Democratic primary in a New York congressional district. (That means she’s a shoe-in in November.) Cortez crushed the long-term incumbent, Rep. Joe Crowley. Many had seen him as the likely heir to Nancy Pelosi as leader of Democrats in the House. Just a few months ago, Cortez worked as a bartender in Greenwich Village. Blind-sided political journalists are now...

    President Donald Trump said Wednesday that New York Rep. Joe Crowley "got his a– kicked" in his Democratic primary Tuesday by a 28-year-old Bernie Sanders supporter "who had a lot of energy." "Last night, we had a great evening," Trump told a rally in Fargo, North Dakota, for Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer, who is facing Democratic incumbent Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in November. "We watched that television — and we were winning left and right," Trump said. "They didn't know what the hell happened.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old Latina running her first campaign, ousted 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in New York's 14th congressional district on Tuesday. An activist and member of the Democratic Socialists of America, Ocasio-Cortez won over voters in the minority-majority district with a ruthlessly efficient grassroots bid, even as Crowley -- the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House -- outraised her by a 10-to-1 margin.

    And you will know her name. A day before Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 28, clinched her remarkable Democratic primary victory in New York's 14th Congressional District, she took a moment to note how she was being described in the political press. "A Girl Has No Name: Headlines from the Political Patriarchy," she tweeted. In the tabloids and on some local television stations, she was, over and again, simply Rep. Joe Crowley's "primary opponent."
