Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez said in an interview on the "Bill Press Show" that Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is "the future of the party".
Except Ocasio-Cortez isn't quite the blue-collar champion she's branding herself as.
A few days after Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., commented on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's upset victory, other established figures in the party voiced concerns that what worked locally may not translate as well nationally.
This is 100% true and I also have 600 unread text messages on my phone. "I would rather debate an open socialist than those who hide what they believe", Beck tweeted. It'll take a minute. "Her ability to take complex information and explain it to all different levels of people was fantastic". The family almost lost it after Ocasio-Cortez's father died of cancer during the Great Recession.
Of course, her lipstick is far from the only thing making waves in America.
"There are a lot of districts in this country that are like NY 14", Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press".
But multiple reports revealed that when she was around the age of five, her father Sergio Ocasio moved the family from a community in Parkchester, Bronx, to a home in Yorktown Heights, a wealthy suburb in Westchester County.
Trump tweeted that U.S. Representative Joe Crowley, whom Ocasio-Cortez beat by 15 percentage points, "should have been nicer, and more respectful, to his President!"
"Fast forward to now, and the people of NY-14 have spoken, and now she is only an election away from getting into Congress and being the first woman of color to represent her native Bronx neighborhood and district of NY-14", he said.
Ocasio-Cortez's brother's description differs from photos of the houses tweeted by Cardillo: "I owned & sold that home".
John Cardillo, in response to the fierce rebuttal, said that he stood corrected about Ocasio-Cortez's alma mater, but continued to insist that the NY Democratic candidate was not being wholly truthful about her past.
