We're big fans of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Congressional candidate who defeated longtime incumbent representative Joe Crowly in last week's ny primary.

Democratic House nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez downplayed Sunday her affiliation with democratic socialism, describing it as only "part of what I am".
"My mom scrubbed toilets so I could live here & I grew up seeing how the zip code one is born in determines much of their opportunity", she tweeted.
Her campaign biography states that her father was a small business owner and that "she grew up in a working-class household where her mother cleaned homes and everyone pitched in on the family business".
Naturally, a lot of institutionalists are pretty scared of her and they're trying out all the tactics they can think of to tear her down.
