Ocasio-Cortez likens $10000 debate offer by conservative columnist to catcalling

Abdul El-Sayed

Gretchen Whitmer's victory in the gubernatorial primary on Tuesday means the Democrats will field an all-female statewide ticket this fall if she picks a woman to be her running mate.

The 28-year-old liberal activist, who was almost unknown outside of Queens and the Bronx until a surprise June victory over a 10-term incumbent in New York's Democratic congressional primary, has been crisscrossing the country in recent weeks to stump for fellow progressives.

"The reality is, this is President Trump's Republican party".

"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. The line was a reference to comments from Sen.

"Last week's editorial regarding the National Yiddish Theater-Folksbiene and Democratic House nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attempts to lecture its readers on the prescription for dealing with rising anti-Israel sentiment on the left and particularly in Democratic circles ("'Fiddler' As Political Outreach"). "I'm hoping that even if a candidate doesn't win in this cycle, they will have created gains for 2020, for 2022". Assuming educational - and medical-infrastructure supply levels remains static - health care and academic costs would naturally skyrocket to herculean levels in order to adjust for this imbalance.

"We're paying for this system", she said.

There are reasons to be skeptical.

Michigan Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gretchen Whitmer addresses her supporters after winning the primary, Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2018, in Detroit. 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.

If he triumphs then, he'll have to defeat Yoder ― who has amassed a almost $2 million war chest ― in November. "She doesn't want to be in a situation where she's going to be challenged".

"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".

The crowd began lining up more than two hours before the event.

The progressive activist responded to Shapiro's offer and it's safe to say - it's a no. He ran through a laundry list of progressive goals ― Medicare for all, eliminating corporate money in politics, raising the minimum wage to $15 ― in a call-and-response with the crowd.
