Lipstick Worn by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez During Debate Sells Out

Ocasio-Cortez Stirring people’s hopes and a nightmare for the Establishment

Ocasio-Cortez Stirring people’s hopes and a nightmare for the Establishment

Her campaign biography states that her father was a small business owner and that "she grew up in a working-class household where her mother cleaned homes and everyone pitched in on the family business".

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the self-declared socialist who defeated fourth-ranking House Democrat Joe Crowley of ny last week, shot back Sunday at a sitting Democratic senator who questioned the efficacy of embracing the far left in a presidential race.

"I think it's the future of the party in the Bronx, where she is", Duckworth said. Long before the 28-year-old Latina went on to beat Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) in the Democratic primary, she went to Boston University in MA, earning degrees in economics and worldwide relations.

But Ocasio-Cortez shot back.

Third, Ocasio-Cortez had to fight off foreclosure of that palatial Yorktown Heights mansion after her Dad died. The right-wing host tried to discredit Ocasio-Cortez's message that has sparked enthusiasm among left-leaning voters. My mom scrubbed toilets so I could live here & I grew up seeing how the zip code one is born in determines much of their opportunity.

In just six days since Ocasio-Cortez's victory, Harris has netted more than $15,000 from 429 donors from 41 states and the District of Columbia - nearly as much as she had raised since the start of her campaign.

"Democrats are a big tent party", she said.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez paints herself as just a "girl from the Bronx".

Cardillo is still tweeting about Ocasio-Cortez a day later.

In response to the tweet, Ocasio-Cortez first corrected Cardillo, explaining she went to Boston University, not Brown, and then said that her parents worked incredibly hard for the family to be able to live in the small house.

While the Post's article is essentially a non-story, it hasn't stopped conservative Twitter personalities from using it as an attempt to smear the new congressional candidate over her Democratic socialist credentials.
