Democrats face tea party-style internal battle as progressives push for change

BREAKING: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old socialist, topples powerful incumbent Joe Crowley

"It's more important than ever before to know who the new voters are", said Stu Loeser, a veteran New York Democratic strategist.

But the image of a stunned Ocasio-Cortez realising she made history in NY is what resonated Wednesday (June 27), and signalled that the progressive wing may be resurgent in the Democratic Party.

On her wish list are lots of things unlikely to pass a Congress held by either Republicans or centrist Democrats. She recently visited an immigration detention center, posting photos of her experience on Twitter.

"I have to do it quietly because of who I am and because the press will go wild", he said, possibly overstating his influence on the media. "You have given this country hope, you have given this country proof that when you knock on your neighbor's door, when you come to them with love, when you let them know that no matter your stance, you are there for them - that we can make change".

USA to curb Chinese investment in tech firms
Policymakers in China moved quickly to temper any potential economic drag from Beijing's dispute with the United States. Meanwhile, later this week, the Treasury Department is due to unveil a proposal on investment and export restrictions.

New York's District 14, which encompasses working class neighborhoods in both the Bronx and Queens, has always been particularly progressive, but Ocasio-Cortez leans even farther left by today's Democratic party standards.

"This is about weaving in an intersectional message of an economic and social agenda that is going to ensure that families are safe, and also can prosper economically, not just in the years to come but for future generations", she said. "I want her to be victorious". "Her voice felt very true". Ocasio-Cortez is, herself, from the Bronx. "She's a woman, she's got a new kind of energy". She is just 28 years old. After his death, the family anxious it would lose its home to foreclosure. Regardless, her platform indicates that she will be a much-needed advocate for restaurant workers.

She has a degree in economics and global relations from Boston University, but after graduation worked as a waitress and bartender to supplement her mother's income as a house cleaner and bus driver, according to a profile in The Intercept. Ocasio-Cortez and Patel argued in favor of policies such as abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement. In a Reddit forum a year ago she described driving across the country with friends after the election.

Glynda C. Carr, co-founder of the group, said Tuesday's upset in NY "demonstrated that all seats are truly in play and that voters are looking for candidates that are ready to lead in this moment". "That tipped the scale for me". "Here in NY, the progressive revolution has begun, and we could not be more proud to be a part of that movement", she tweeted. She defeated Crowley by 15 percentage points.

Rampant Mexico sees off South Korea to close on last 16
A second victory on Saturday gives it six points and a chance to win Group F on Wednesday when the team faces Sweden . The South Koreans are winless in their last seven World Cup matches, losing their last three in a row.

"It was clear that no one else was going to do it", she said. So Anoa, I'm wondering if we could just start by talking about this unbelievable victory in NY.

Rep. Joseph Crowley's primary loss Tuesday sent shock waves through congressional Democrats, who face the prospect of nasty internal battles every bit as divisive as the tea-party-fueled fights Republicans suffered in recent years.

One was low turnout. It wasn't that Crowley lost because he wasn't conservative enough, he lost, in part, because he wasn't progressive enough.

They thanked each other after the result, with Mr Crowley saying he would support Ms Ocasio-Cortez in the mid-terms.

Diego Maradona blamed the Argentine Football Association president Claudio Tapia for the current situation of the team. When his teammates witness his reaction after a setback, they infer he's lost faith the team, in them.

Until 2013, the district was mainly comprised of middle-to-upper class Manhattan and Queens neighborhoods before being shifted more toward Pelham and the South Bronx.
