    Ocasio-Cortez hits campaign trail with Bernie Sanders

    As upstart Ocasio-Cortez hits campaign trail with Bernie Sanders, high profile spurs fears of Dem rift


    By Gregg Re | Fox News

    Several House Democrats criticize Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

    Comments made by New York Democratic primary winner draw criticism from Democrats; former aide to Senator Schumer Chris Hahn and political strategist Mark Penn react on 'The Ingraham Angle.'

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is hitting the national campaign trail this week with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders to stump for other left-wing candidates, even as the upstart 28-year-old democratic socialist's rising profile continues to rankle top Democrats.

    Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez are expected to campaign on July 20 for two congressional candidates seeking to unseat Republican incumbents in Kansas: James Thompson in Wichita, and former Sanders delegate Brent Welder in the suburbs of Kansas City.


    But Ocasio-Cortez is also set to support several progressives seeking to supplant Democratic incumbents elsewhere -- alarming Democratic leaders and pundits who worry that her rising national profile and far-left politics might fracture the party ahead of critical midterm elections.


    DEFEATED 10-TERM INCUMBENT JOE CROWLEY SEEKS TO EASE TENSIONS AFTER OCASIO-CORTEZ'S SHOCK WIN


    On July 28 and 29, Ocasio-Cortez will visit Michigan to lend her national spotlight to Abdul El-Sayed, 33, a progressive candidate for governor. She will travel throughout Michigan, stopping in places including Grand Rapids, Flint and Detroit.


    El-Sayed is Detroit’s ex-public health commissioner, and looks to upset Democratic former State Sen. Gretchen Whitmer.


    "Alexandria’s victory was a proof of concept for campaigns like ours,” El-Sayed told The Washington Post.

    "If her win makes her into ... the new face of the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party's not going to have a very bright future."

    - Former Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman

    Ocasio-Cortez has also endorsed other progressives seeking to take down incumbent Democratic lawmakers, including and Delaware Sen. Tom Carper and Reps. Stephanie Murphy of Florida, Adam Smith of Washington, and Michael Capuano of Massachusetts.


    WATCH: JOE LIEBERMAN SAYS DEMS WON'T HAVE A 'BRIGHT FUTURE' IF OCASIO-CORTEZ IS THEIR MODEL


    In Kansas' Republican-leaning 4th District, where Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez will team up Friday, Thompson came close to winning in a special election last year, and is taking his second shot at unseating GOP Rep. Ron Estes.


    Meanwhile, far-left Welder is running against GOP Rep. Kevin Yoder, whom President Trump endorsed on Twitter this week as someone who has voted for "$5 BILLION for Border Security" and who "loves our Military and Vets."

    Donald J. Trump

    @realDonaldTrump


    Thank you to Congressman Kevin Yoder! He secured $5 BILLION for Border Security. Now we need Congress to support. Kevin has been strong on Crime, the Border, the 2nd Amendment, and he loves our Military and Vets. @RepKevinYoder has my full and total endorsement!

    2:29 PM - Jul 18, 2018



    Welder, who worked as a labor lawyer and wants a $15 minimum wage and touts a "Medicare for All" platform, has polled ahead of Yoder, and his 3rd District went to Hillary Clinton by a slim margin in 2016.

    Primaries in both Kansas and Michigan take place Aug. 7.


    “It’s a huge boost to our campaign to welcome Senator Sanders and Ms. Ocasio-Cortez to Wichita,” Thompson said in a statement. “The interest and enthusiasm here has been electric.”


    But even as the progressive pair seek to export their brand of progressive politics to the Sunflower State and beyond, top Democratic leaders have increasingly sounded the alarm.

    Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., charged this week that Ocasio-Cortez was overly idealistic.

    "Meteors fizz out,” Hastings said. “What she will learn in this institution is that it’s glacial to begin with, and therefore no matter how far you rise, that’s just how far you will ultimately get your comeuppance.

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2)]



    “You come up here and you’re going to be buddy-buddy with all the folks or you’re going to make them do certain things? Ain’t happening, O.K.?” Hastings added.

    And Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J., said that Ocasio-Cortez's decision to pubicly feud with longtime Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., even after she defeated him in a shocking primary contest last month was upsetting Democrats in the House.


    "She’s not asking my advice,” Pascrell said. "I would do it differently, rather than make enemies of people.”


    Rep. Lacy Clay, D-Mo. -- who is facing a primary challenge from the left by community activist Cori Bush, who has Ocasio-Cortez's backing -- was more direct.


    “Once an election is over and you win, why are you still angry?” Clay asked. “I think it’s a lack of maturity on her part, and a lack of political acumen, for her to be that petty."


    That sentiment was echoed by former Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, who was the Democratic Party's candidate for vice president in 2000, in an interview with Fox News on Wednesday.


    "When I see somebody who really says she's a socialist -- she's a very captivating, charismatic candidate -- when you look at those policies, those policies will not be supported in many places across America," Lieberman said.


    "If her win makes her into what Kellyanne Conway called the new face of the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party's not going to have a very bright future," he added.


    Lieberman wrote a Wall Street Journal op-ed calling for voters to reject Ocasio-Cortez in the November elections.

    No he didn't secure 5 billion for Border Security!

    He introduced a bill and the bill is still far from becoming law.

    Stop the lies!

    I understand his usage of the word "secured" to mean it's already cemented in place. And as stoptheinvaders said, that's not the case. Maybe it was a slip, but it is also possible it's another attempt to deceive like he has been doing on his claim that the Congress gave him a $1.6 billion down payment on HIS wall ...... and that HIS wall is being built.

    Perhaps someone needs to start screening his tweets before his finger hits the send button.

    A Bill is not secured when it has only been introduced.

    He should have said----=Thank you to Congressman Kevin Yoder! He introduced a bill which includes $5 BILLION for Border Security. Now we need Congress to support.

    The word secure means to fix or attach, Yoder attached the $5 billion to the appropriations bill in his Subcommittee on Homeland Security Appropriations, that he chairs, which means he has secured it in the bill and now Congress needs to support it.

    Trump writes most of his Tweets for Trump Supporters who get all this stuff.

    Trump writes most of his tweets for those easily deceived.

    Secure----
    fixed or fastened so as not to give way, become loose, or be lost.

    Trump said he secured 5 Billion for Border Security

    Trump did not say he attached it to the appropriations bill, that may or may not pass.
    I suspect Yoder did this to add to his campaign advertising and speeches, then never hear any more about it once the election is over.

    LOL. Trump writes his tweets as attention grabbers for anyone that will listen.
