Another Democrat said they'd like to see the rising self-described Democratic socialist star give her fellow colleagues a chance before "passing judgment".

"I think she looks mature and they look juvenile", Walsh said.

"She's new here, feeling her way around", said Representative Kurt Schrader (D., Ore.).
