The come-from-behind win defied expectations and is bound to invite comparisons to the win by progressive star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who stunned the political world in June by defeating established Rep. Joe Crowley in a New York Democratic primary.
"This race is about every single last one of us, right? Those of us in this room…those who could not vote for me because they may be Republicans. But, you want to know something?
