I am not weeping for the Democrats, but this should be a warning for the future. The Far, far left is coming!
A stunning upset finds a socialist challenger defeated a strong House incumbent and it wasn’t even close. The voters in this NY 14th Congressional District, don’t like what they see from the Democratic Party and they want to move farther left into Sen. Bernie Sanders’ territory.

Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley loses primary to 28-year-old progressive Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
A stunning upset for someone who many thought was a future Speaker of the House

Rep. Joe Crowley, the powerful chairman of the House Democratic Caucus seen as a potential future speaker, was unseated Tuesday night by primary challenger Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in his New York district.
Ocasio-Cortez had 58 percent of the Democratic primary vote to 42 percent for Crowley when the Associated Press called the race with 85 percent of precincts reporting.
Ocasio-Cortez, 28, challenged Crowley on ideological and racial grounds, arguing that the 10-term congressman was not in step with his majority-minority district and was too cozy with corporate donors.
Whoa. With 31% in safely blue #NY14, Ocasio-Cortez leading longtime Rep. Joe Crowley 57-43. This would be a Cantor-sized upset over the chair of Queens machine

Republicans will scoff at this win and will not pay attention because it has nothing to do with our side, but I beg to differ. If young socialists start defeating Democrat incumbents and our party stays old and feckless, there will be a major shift the likes you haven’t seen before.
Sen. Bernie Sanders destroyed Hillary in the primaries, but she won with her Super-Super delegates which nobody has ever heard of before. Young people want free stuff from the government, and if they can elect representatives to push those ideas, they will become formidable.
I don’t sleep on stuff like this and you shouldn’t either.
