New York politics was rocked on Tuesday night when an upstart challenger named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez soundly defeated Congressman Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary. Crowley represents New York's 14th Congressional District (it includes parts of the Bronx and Queens), has served for 10 terms, and was part of the House Democratic leadership. But all that wasn't enough to stop the 28-year-old Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the Democratic Socialists who previously organized for Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign.
