Real estate bet big (and lost) on outgoing Rep. Joe Crowley

  • Rep. Joe Crowley upset in stunning NY Democratic primary loss

Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the Democratic Socialists, was not the only one left speechless by her defeat of 20-year incumbent Joseph Crowley, who dreamed of becoming speaker of the House.

Ocasio-Cortez grew up in the Bronx and studied economics and global relations at Boston University.

But Vahedi, who lived on Ocasio-Cortez's dorm floor freshman year ("Warren Towers, 16B"), was not surprised by the political upset. Pressley, 44, sent campaign staff to assist Ocasio-Cortez in her get-out-the-vote efforts and was quick to congratulate her on Tuesday. She was doing it to help support her family after her father died, she's said, and a photo of her that reporter Dave Weigel tweeted still appears on the website of her old employer, the Mexican restaurant and tequila bar Flats Fix. " The profiles paint a picture not just of a courageous underdog fighting for social justice at a time in which it's needed more than ever, but perhaps also contain hints of progressive things to come, whether or not the Democratic or Republican parties are ready to face them". I mean, you even have, even though Stacey Abrams won her campaign previous year resoundingly, I mean last month resoundingly, there was still a battle and a fight to get support from outside of establishment DNC groups to support her. In the 2016 presidential campaign she worked for U.S. Sen. So I'm wondering if you could talk more about who Joe Crowley is, and why this is incredibly important, not just because Ocasio-Cortez ran an important grassroots campaign, but also because she's unseating one of the most powerful Democrats. It's a district that's 70 percent person of color, and it has never been represented by a person of color. Both women have suggested that they have the life experiences and sensibilities to better serve the residents of those communities.

"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", she said.

Massachusetts' 7th District, which includes most of Boston and portions Cambridge and Milton, as well as Chelsea and Somerville, is close to 60 percent minority.

Should he defeat the Republican incumbent he would become only the third African-American elected to lead a USA state.

"I like Joe Crowley, he was a very friendly guy, but the fact of the matter is she had a different approach", Holtzman said.

"I'm dating a number of women, and a number of them are Jewish", he added.

The Congressional Black Caucus political action committee also is supporting the incumbent. So Anoa, I'm wondering if we could just start by talking about this unbelievable victory in NY. "Rep. Capuano has built his career on standing up for those who have been left behind", Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.), chairman of the PAC said in a statement.

Pressley has been endorsed by some local political leaders and grass-roots organizations. "She is rising at the flawless time". "Women like me aren't supposed to run for office".

Others took the Associated Press to task for a breaking news tweet sent Tuesday night declaring, 'U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley defeated by younger challenger in NY'.

Ben Wikler, the Washington director of MoveOn, America's largest independent online political group, said Ocasio-Cortez triggered an quake.
