Ocasio-Cortez gets her first scalp in Dem civil war

Article:


There's a civil war brewing in the Democratic Party between the establishment and far-left progressives. While the presidential insurgency of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-V.T., is losing badly to former Vice President Joe Biden, democratic socialists' efforts to purge the House, led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., just claimed their first scalp.

An AOC-backed leftist Democrat narrowly toppled eight-term Democratic Rep. Dan Lipinski of Illinois in a primary on Tuesday.

Lipinski, who's served the district since 2005, has been a top target of national leftists, because he's one of a handful of pro-life Democrats. He became a national leader to defund Planned Parenthood, especially after undercover videos showed abortion officials discussing the sale of body parts from aborted babies.

Lipinski also violated left-wing orthodoxy by voting against Obamacare ("It was not a good bill," he said) and supporting the Defense of Marriage Act.

The blue-collar Democrat won his Chicago district by focusing on kitchen table issues like jobs and constituent service.

But Newman, a former advertising executive, ran up a formidable lead in the district's wealthier suburbs.

Newman led by more than 2,200 votes, or about 2.5 percent, on Wednesday, when Lipinski conceded.

After looking at the returns, Lipinski told his supporters he realized "I will not prevail."

Praise showered in on the Newman campaign from left-wingers nationwide, including Ocasio-Cortez, who tweeted "congratulations" for Newman's "incredible victory!"
