Lipstick Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wore Sells Out

Lipstick Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wore Sells Out

Since Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's stunning primary win over Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday, interest in democratic socialism-the label Ocasio-Cortez unabashedly uses to describe her platform and political outlook-has surged exponentially, prompting corporate TV networks to feature segments on the term and driving a record-breaking membership boost for the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

She faces Republican Anthony Pappas in the November midterms.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)-who has self-identified as a democratic socialist for decades-is by far the most popular politician in the country, and polls have shown that Democratic voters prefer socialism over capitalism. Democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of NY even became the first person in the Senate to call for the abolishment of ICE, just after Ocasio-Cortez's victory. "They have money, we have people".

After high school, Ocasio-Cortez studied global relations and economics at Boston University and worked for Sen.

"Knowing Alex (we call her Sandy) personally gave us a lot to work with", Starrett told Co.Design.

Elmore was first introduced to "Sandy", by a friend who said, "She's the smartest person I know".

Trump dubs Heitkamp a 'liberal Democrat,' urges her defeat
Trump is also predicting that Democrats will do worse than expected in the upcoming midterm elections. He says, "We have to pick a great one" who will serve for 40 or 45 years. "She'll be told to".

In crafting the visual look and feel of the campaign, Tandem's team looked to revolutionary grassroots movements of the past, and specifically to the movements led by labor and civil rights activists like Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez-direct, refreshing visuals often made by hand and conveying a sense of cultural urgency.

"So what that means to me is health care as a human right", Ocasio-Cortez said.

Opting for bold lettering and a flat design treatment that forgoes drop shadows, gradients, American flag motifs, and other visual cliches, the identity intentionally avoids pretentious signifiers to refreshing effect; one might even liken the energetic campaign visuals to a local poster bill. "I do think that we do need to elect a generation of new people to Congress in both parties".

Ocasio-Cortez went on to say she believes the Democratic Party's future is about the "working class". Ocasio-Cortez would have been about 10 years old at the time.

Still, Pressley doesn't exactly mirror political newcomer Ocasio-Cortez's race this week.

She said it was "exhausting just running in the Bronx and Queens" and she can't imagine how national candidates do it.
