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.”
Liberal host Bill Press brought up Ocasio-Cortez’s defeat of Rep. Joe Crowley (D., N.Y.), the current chair of the House Democratic Caucus, to become the Democratic nominee for New York’s 14th Congressional District.
“Twenty-eight years old, never ran for office before, big progressive. Calls herself a democratic socialist, actually, like Bernie Sanders did, she was a Bernie Sanders reporter,” Press said.
The article goes on to state the following:
“What’s this tell you about where the Democratic Party is going today?” Press asked the DNC chair.
Perez said his daughters both texted him about their excitement over Ocasio-Cortez’s win.
“Because, she really, she represents the future of our party,” Perez said, complimenting the self-described Democratic socialist for running a “spirited campaign.”
Ocasio-Cortez is a member of the New York City chapter of Democratic Socialists of America and her progressive platform includes calling for the abolishment of ICE, a federal jobs guarantee, and single-payer health care.
