The 28-year-old Democrat appeared on the ABC program "The View" Friday to talk about her upset victory in a primary over a 10-term NY congressman.

The Democratic nominee for the 14th Congressional District also dismissed the validity of polls in primary elections. In just six days since Ocasio-Cortez's victory, Harris has netted more than $15,000 from 429 donors from 41 states and the District of Columbia - nearly as much as she had raised since the start of her campaign.

Third, Ocasio-Cortez had to fight off foreclosure of that palatial Yorktown Heights mansion after her Dad died.

England manager Gareth Southgate is expected to bring captain Harry Kane back in to the starting line up for this clash. The Swiss have only lost one match in the past two years, with 15 wins and four draws during that stretch.

The DNC chief added that he has "great respect" for Ocasio-Cortez's primary opponent, Rep. Joe Crowley, whom Perez called a "good Democrat" and a "class act".

Ocasio-Cortez would have been about 10 years old at the time.

Alvarado said he attended social demonstrations, political events and went door-to-door with Ocasio-Cortez, as she met voters in her district. According to Corbin Trent, a Justice Democrats co-founder who spent seven weeks working full-time for Ocasio-Cortez, this was the dream all along - one breakthrough candidate who demonstrates that incumbents are beatable. Growing up, it was a good town for working people. Responding to a critic on Twitter who insinuated that Yorktown Heights is nicer than the Bronx, Ocasio-Cortez said: "It is nice".

During her campaign, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Party's rising "democratic-socialist" icon, painted herself as the "girl from the Bronx". My mom scrubbed toilets so I could live here & I grew up seeing how the zip code one is born in determines much of their opportunity.

Cardillo is staring right at the essence of Ocasio-Cortez's message, but he still can't see it. "One just graduated college, one who is in college, and they were both texting me about their excitement over Alexandria because she really - she represents the future of our party", Perez said during an interview with liberal radio show host Bill Press.

As the CDU and CSU parties hunkered down in Berlin and Munich, leaders on both sides sought to clarify what was a stake. Ahead of a hard Bavarian state election in October, the CSU is determined to show that it is tough on migration.

Naturally, a lot of institutionalists are pretty scared of her and they're trying out all the tactics they can think of to tear her down.
