  • Michigan Democratic gubernatorial candidate Abdul El Sayed campaigns with support from New York Democrat candidate for Congress Alexandria Ocasio Cortez at a rally on the campus of Wayne State University

In a video posted Wednesday, in which Shapiro mocked Democratic National Committee chairperson Tom Perez for labeling the NY congressional candidate the "future of the Democratic Party", he offered to donate $10,000 to her campaign if she accepted an offer to debate him.

More than 1.1 million people voted in the Democratic gubernatorial contest, double the number in the 2010 race, and about 140,000 more than the almost 1 million who voted in the Republican primary.

She's been raising campaign cash in sold-out theaters, rubbing shoulders with leaders in the party's liberal wing and building an audience of 788,000 Twitter followers. That said, we neither invited nor uninvited anyone to see "Fiddler". Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who predicted that El-Sayed would defy polling like Sanders did in narrowly upsetting Hillary Clinton in Michigan's 2016 presidential primary. And in Missouri, Rep. William Lacy Clay beat insurgent challenger and community activist Cori Bush, who received strong support from Ocasio-Cortez.

On Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez discussed her stances on a variety of issues, including education reform, the future of democratic socialism, immigration reform, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict during an interview on PBS's talk show The Firing Line. "Fear keeps people from accomplishing great things".

Republicans say they expected higher Democratic turnout. It's virtually impossible for a third party to win a national election with the two-party paradigm that has a stranglehold on American politics. The female candidates defeated their male opponents in 45 of the 65 races (69%). "So weekend I stopped by his office, said hello, & asked for a debate in person", Ocasio-Cortez wrote alongside a photo of her at Crowley's campaign office.

However, not all Democrats are enthusiastic about JD's message either.

Ocasio-Cortez did not have to reply: No one expects a candidate to debate non-candidates, and her from-the-left appeal is based much more on getting out the vote than it is on persuading undecided independents or hostile conservatives. "The people who are supportive of the president are very supportive, they're very enthusiastic", said Anderson, adding that the GOP also will have to appeal to independent swing voters.

"Congratulations to @sharicedavids in #KS03!" she tweeted." whispers there is no political reality in which a Native American LGBTQ woman candidate is 'establishment'".

"In the world of physics, every action has an equal and opposite reaction", Hallquist reflects. Thank you for believing in me, for supporting me, for carrying me.

"When I won, they said, 'Stay home.' They said, 'Keep it in the Bronx, '" she told a crowd at a progressive Democratic conference in New Orleans Saturday, "But we know better than that".

"It changed our race", she said.
