Ocasio-Cortez Accused Primary Opponent of 'Avoiding a Debate — FLASHBACK

Ocasio-Cortez Accused Primary Opponent of 'Avoiding a Debate — FLASHBACK

"Her name is. Do you recognize her as the leader for the House Democrats?"

Labor lawyer Brent Welder led for much of the night but ultimately fell to Sharice Davids, a lawyer, former MMA fighter and, if she unseats GOP Rep. Kevin Yoder, the first Native American woman elected to Congress.

Ocasio-Cortez, who defeated 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in New York's 14th District Democratic primary in June, acknowledged the $32.6 trillion cost of Sen.

Ocasio-Cortez took advantage of some unique circumstances to beat Crowley, one of the top House Democrats.

Of course, the circumstances are different because Ocasio-Cortez wanted to debate someone she was running against, but that's not the reason she gave to Shapiro. And she touted her experience during her victory speech in Detroit. She described the day in May when Israeli troops killed more than 60 Palestinians, mostly Hamasniks, attempting to breach the fence with the Gaza Strip as a "massacre". Whitmer also won slightly more than half of the Democratic votes, while El-Sayed received more than 30 percent to Thanedar's 17 percent. Lauer said he likes Trump but that the president's endorsement didn't sway him. Nonetheless, Colorado, given the state's past votes for Mrs. Clinton, is a notable departure from the "flyover" status.

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro responded Friday to accusations by democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that he catcalled her in his debate challenge, arguing that she didn't want to come across as being "afraid".


Perhaps a few realities of government need to be made clear.

He also criticized Ocasio-Cortez's analogy of catcalling, labeling it an "insane" accusation. Indeed, recent interviews and comments from the superstar, who has a degree in economics from Boston University, indicate that she absorbed little at BU in the way of basic economic principles. The question was the same, and her answer was just as rambling and incoherent as before.

Her proposal to legally secure our borders is to abolish ICE and replace it "with something new and better".

"I like balanced budgets".

"Just like catcalling, I don't owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions", Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter, likely citing Shaprio's criticism of her appearance on CNN and sparking a massive Twitter debate.

This can only be accomplished by significantly raising taxes or eliminating spending in other areas. Some users characterize Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's catcalling metaphor as one for the ages, while others say the comparison is groundless. "The candidates who are winning primaries are nearly all progressive leaders who have demonstrated something special about them and their campaign which makes Democratic voters ready to trust them to take on Trump and take away his full control of government".
