Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Tweeted That She Will Not Debate Ben Shapiro

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Tweeted That She Will Not Debate Ben Shapiro

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old democratic socialist from NY who scored a shocking primary victory over Rep. Joseph Crowley in June, has since become a lightning rod for attacks from conservative circles.

But others in the Democratic party say the candidates who won on Tuesday are progressive leaders in their own right, nominated to defy the president.

"A lot of these folk were in their political heyday in third-way '90s politics", she said, "I think that like politically this upper-middle class is probably more moderate, but that upper-middle class does not exist anymore in America".

After Tuesday's primaries across four states - Kansas, Michigan, Missouri and Washington - there were 11 female nominees for governor and 182 for the House of Representatives, the U.S. media reported.

She earned the nomination by defeating Shri Thanedar, a chemical-testing businessman, and Abdul El-Sayed, an ex-Detroit health director who was vying to become the country's first Muslim governor.

An airline employee had stolen a 78-seat turboprop airliner and conducted a unsafe joyride, complete with loops and other stunts. The Pierce County Sheriff's Office said the man, who has been identified as Richard Russell , was 29 years old and "suicidal".

Social media soon erupted, with progressives rallying around her assessment that the proffer of money was misogynistic, and conservatives mocking Ocasio-Cortez's response as political correctness on steroids.

The conservative scrutiny on Ocasio-Cortez took a unusual turn this week when a popular conservative commentator and speaker, Ben Shapiro, challenged Ocasio-Cortez to a debate and offered to pay her campaign $10,000 in return.

Female candidates also had victories in several other national and state primaries. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who predicted that El-Sayed would defy polling like Sanders did in narrowly upsetting Hillary Clinton in Michigan's 2016 presidential primary. In November, Thompson will face U.S. Rep. Ron Estes, the Republican congressman who beat him past year in a special election after receiving the backing of President Donald Trump.

Ocasio-Cortez went after Crowley again a month later, saying she was "disappointed" when he failed to show up to a community debate. He has trailed in recent polls.

The video-which offers a $10K donation to Ocasio-Cortez's campaign (or the charity of her choice, as he later offered) in exchange for her participation-comes one day after Ocasio's highly criticized appearance on CNN Wednesday night, where she stumbled on her words while answering a question about Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

"We need a governor who knows how to get things done". "They don't want us to realize how powerful we really are". His chosen candidates win Republican primaries.

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

Lewinsky, who knows from trouble and male attention, weighed in by calling Ocasio-Cortez a "badass".

In her victory speech, Whitmer noted how much she enjoys her home state.

"I spent the last nine days, I know it seems like an eternity, but just nine days I was out traveling the country", Ocasio told supporters at an event in NY this week.
