She had helped launch Flats Fix, a tacos and craft cocktail spot in Manhattan, while pondering what to do next. She previously worked as a bartender and as a political organizer for Bernie Sanders, the New York Times reports.

She joined protesters at the Standing Rock demonstration against a natural gas pipeline. During a televised debate with Ocasio-Cortez less than two weeks before the primary, Crowley argued that "simply abolishing the agency doesn't take it out of the hands of (Attorney General) Jeff Sessions or this president".

Following an event in the Bronx, Cuomo broke down the race by saying there "was a minority community, largely in this district, that is afraid, that is angry, that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez did a very good job of connecting with", the New York Post reported. She spent Wednesday morning telling reporters of her hope of going to Washington "with an entire caucus of newly elected progressives" who aren't beholden to corporate donors and are willing to shake things up. The fact that in a very progressive district in NY, it went more progressive than - Joe Crowley is a progressive, but more she's left than Joe Crowley, is about that district.

I thought those of us who were pulling for Ocasio-Cortez would be talking about how remarkable her spirited performance was, given the long odds. "I want her to be victorious".

The district is considered within reach for Democrats in November. "I am proud of the race we ran and, more importantly, proud of all of the work we've done to advance this community", Crawley said in a statement. The pair been working on their latest documentary, entitled "Knock Down the House", for months, focusing on four different women - including Ocasio-Cortez - running for office around the country. "If we can get somebody to care, its a huge victory for the movement and the causes were trying to advance".

During her campaign, she criticised Mr Crowley on his ties to Wall Street and accused him of being out of touch with his increasingly diverse constituents. He had voted to create the Department of Homeland Security. They made a choice in one district. "[Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] represents the future of the Democratic Party", said Nixon. She was the first to admit that she had bounced around, from Sen.

Crowley did not take the challenge lightly, spending $1.5 million, more than five times as much as his opponent.

"What the people of Maryland understand is that we can most effectively oppose Donald Trump's extremism with strong progressive leadership at the state and local level - and there are few progressives stronger than Ben", he added.

"I won", Ocasio-Cortez screamed while watching the results come in on television.

Crowley congratulated Ocasio-Cortez on her victory. "A great and loving family will be coming to D.C". There's the establishment wing, and there's the Ocasio-Cortez crowd. Ocasio-Cortezs focus stayed on Crowley. Sanders endorsed her, but didn't campaign for her. We should also keep in mind there is a pendulum in American politics that Trump has not destroyed.

Ocasio-Cortez and Sullivan were both student speakers at BU's Martin Luther King Jr.

She turned and faced Palma.
