CNN’s Berman Reacts to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Victory: ‘Oh My… Democrats, Call Your Office’

‘A stunning primary upset of one of the most powerful Democrats in Washington’


BERMAN: "We do have breaking news this morning. Overnight, oh, my, a genuine political shocker. Democrats, call your office. A stunning primary upset of one of the most powerful Democrats in Washington. Congressman Joe Crowley, the fourth ranking House Democrat and most importantly, once seen as a possible House Speaker should the Democrats take over, he was beaten and beaten badly in his New York City district. The upset winner, first-time candidate, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, just 28 years old, supported by the Democratic Socialists of America. She ran far to the left in this race. What does that tell us about where the energy is in the Democratic Party?"
