More progressive primary victories
See results here. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a progressive Puerto Rican woman who supports Medicare-For-All and identifies as a Democratic Socialist, defeated the incumbent corporate Dim. Said incumbent was the 4th ranking Dim in Congress. Dana Balter, running on a progressive populist agenda, defeated an anti-abortion establishment Dim in a swing Syracuse district. Two progressives won Governor primaries, Ben Jealous in Maryland and Jared Polis in Colorado. This is what we the people want, so we're going out and getting it. Progressives aren't winning every race but they are certainly making inroads. Keep up the good fight people.
