Upset of Democratic House leader points to party divisions

Democratic Caucus Chairman Joseph Crowley D-NY speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington DC on Nov. 1 2017

After graduating, she returned to the Bronx where she became a community organizer. "But it has been there, and I think hopefully from it comes a lesson for us that those points of view that she represented in her campaign, and others represent, including me, they need to be factored in and incorporated and part of our overall message".

"I can imagine", Lukes said, "that many of us at Boston University now feel like fathers or mothers of that great upset in NY".

She also used the hashtag #CourageToChange on Twitter, touting a 'New York that works for all of us'. Her father ran his own small business and her Puerto Rican mother cleaned houses.

"They made a choice in one district", Pelosi said.

Ocasio-Cortez's victory sends a resounding message to the Democratic establishment: Progressives are demanding change - and the party can't afford not to listen to them.

Since college, she has worked as an educational director for the National Hispanic Institute, which said it was "proud" of her win and the way she ran.

MacCallum said Ocasio-Cortez ripped Trump as an "authoritarian hyper-capitalist".

She grew up in the Bronx.

. Yet she cautioned against reading too much into the race as a sign of the direction of Democratic voters.

By contrast, this was England's biggest victory in the format, topping their 210-run win against New Zealand at Edgbaston in 2015. England made the highest one-day global total in history, posting 481-6 against Australia in the third ODI at Trent Bridge.

Blanca discussed how the family struggled to make ends meet and explained her daughter's appeal as a candidate. 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.

"Voters also knew that I was the only candidate in the race that did not take corporate money in a time when economic marginalization is really increasing in New York City", Ocasio-Cortez added.

In the weeks prior, Ocasio-Cortez's journey from working-class activist to congressional candidate attracted wider attention when a campaign video designed for social distribution went viral.

It might seem unbelievable that after Bernie Sanders' huge success in the 2016 democratic primaries running on a grassroots campaign that condemned Wall Street's influence and called for social justice that Democrats can still be caught off guard by progressives unseating their heavyweights. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old socialist, ran an insurgent campaign focused on Medicare for all, abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and tuition-free higher education.

To underscore that position, she even traveled to the U.S. -Mexico border region days before the election to protest the separation of immigrant families.

Ocasio-Cortez also supports a federal $15 minimum wage as well as paid child and sick leave. She recieved great grades, he said. And specifically in some of these states, like NY and Maryland, there was a massive upset that will actually change Democratic Party politics in this country, and could challenge some of the neoliberal corporate Wall Street-backed Democrats who have dominated the party. She was Crowley's first opponent in 14 years. "There's something that people see in her specifically". She called out Crowley for his Washington-insider status and seemingly-cozy relationships with major real estate developers and Wall Street.

Throughout the night, as more and more people flooded into the packed Bronx pool hall, Ocasio-Cortez was trailed by a swarm of reporters, supporters and campaign staff clamouring for hugs, selfies or just a glimpse of the woman behind a feat many had considered impossible.
