The far-left group that grew out of Bernie Sanders’s 2016 presidential run recorded its biggest victory last week with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s surprise primary win over Democrat representative Joe Crowley (N.Y.). They say it’s just the start of its takeover of the party.
Ocasio, a socialist who ran a strong campaign focused on far-left policies such as universal health care, a federal jobs guarantee, housing as a human right, and abolishing ICE, defeated Crowley, a top House Democrat, by 15 points on Tuesday. Ocasio-Cortez was an organizer for Sanders’s 2016 campaign and was part of a group of candidates associated with Justice Democrats, a group launched by Sanders campaign alums with aim to transform the Democratic Party.
The article goes on to state the following:
The group says Tuesday’s victory was its breakthrough moment, and it is seeing signs of more victories to come.
“There’s a moment when things shift,” said Corbin Trent, who led the Sanders campaign in Tennessee and now heads communications for Justice Democrats. “This is that moment.”
Trent says there is a new energy among both its candidates and supporters since the win, with people taking note that if you put the same work in as Ocasio and her campaign, you can be the next upset.
“When you keep beating your head against the wall, once you finally hear a crack you finally feel better about doing it,” Trent said. “Just from watching our email and donations coming in to Ocasio and our Democrats across the board, this is an invigorating moment.”
