This is really unusual!

Things are going so well for insurgent Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that she’s winning primaries she didn’t even enter.

In addition to recently whipping longtime Queens Rep. Joseph Crowley in the 14th congressional district Democratic primary, Ocasio-Cortez also won the Reform Party write-in primary over Bronx Rep. Jose Serrano in the neighboring 15th congressional district. Neither she nor Serrano were competing for the line.

Still, the city Board of Elections certified Ocasio-Cortez’s write-in victory on Tuesday. Of the 22 people who received write-in votes, Ocasio-Cortez got the most with nine. While write-in votes are not unusual, someone actually winning a race she wasn’t running for is.

But having won it, Ocasio-Cortez had to decline one of the nominations she won since state law bars individuals from being candidates for two different offices at the same time.

LOL... 9 write-in votes and your hair is on fire about the Socialists taking over a national party! ROFL

Derp!
You forgot about Bernie Sanders. The Dims had to cheat him out of the nomination.

Th point us, the Socilists are out of the closet. You don't have to hide behind "progressive"anymore.

Socialism has always been out of the closet. It actually has a track record. It's the Ayn Rand Objectivists/libertarians who have no record whatsoever, but insist it's the model we should emulate.

You forgot you made your assessment based on a quote about a candidate who won because of 9 write-in votes. I understand you're embarrassed and want to change your whole argument now. That's funny too.

Derp!

What's "Th point us" mean? And what are "Socilists"?

Derp! Derp!

What is a dram queen?

Dims no longer have to hide from being Socialists.
