Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's movement failed to deliver any stunners Tuesday night

Ocasio-Cortez v Ben Shapiro Dem candidate refuses ‘catcalling’ debate offer

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez ran as an avowed Democratic Socialist with a platform that included such items as Medicare for all, free education, the abolishment of ICE, guaranteed jobs and wages, and affordable housing for everyone.

But there would be no repeat, in any state, of Ocasio-Cortez's particular feat: unseating an incumbent Democrat.

On the Republican side, the results again reinforced how Trump has refashioned the party in his own image while playing an influential role in many primary races.

That didn't work out well.

In Kansas, congressional candidate James Thompson cruised to victory in the Democratic primary after getting visits from Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. "So electing more women empowers those voices and informs better decision-making".

Missouri's Cori Bush, who campaigned with Ocasio-Cortez a few weeks ago, tried and failed in her bid to oust Rep. William Lacy Clay Jr., whose father, former Rep. William Lacy Clay Sr., was a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus.

The conservative scrutiny on Ocasio-Cortez took a odd turn this week when a popular conservative commentator and speaker, Ben Shapiro, challenged Ocasio-Cortez to a debate and offered to pay her campaign $10,000 in return. But she was an outspoken advocate for women's issues long before the January 2017 Women's Marches and #MeToo era, publicly disclosing during a 2013 legislative debate on health insurance coverage for abortions that she had been raped in college.

It is no accident of geography that an overwhelming quantity and tenor of American politics, as reported by the national media, are heavily weighted and influenced by those on both coasts.

Voters in MI also decided two other primary races. Beginning past year, Sanders-backed candidates faltered in an Omaha mayoral race and a nationally watched House race in Montana. Patrick Colbeck and Dr. Jim Hines, an obstetrician-gynecologist. Bernie Sanders won his signature victory in the 2016 presidential primary, former state Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer routed the insurgent Abdul El-Sayed. Dennis Kucinich lost in Ohio.

The Kansas primaries were one of several that took place Tuesday night.

Of course, Ocasio-Cortez's losses were Sanders' as well, given that Sanders is the young lady's mentor.

Lewinsky, who knows from trouble and male attention, weighed in by calling Ocasio-Cortez a "badass".

"It's not totally predictive, but I think it's a very good sign that we're going to have an engaged, excited Democratic electorate turning out in November", said Dillon, whose party has struggled with turnout in past midterm elections. "Thirty, 40 years later they control every level of government. They need to get some fresh faces, go back to their roots and reorganize".

As the Washington Post put it in its headline about Tuesday: "Democratic Party's liberal insurgency hits a wall in Midwest primaries".
