Democratic House nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez downplayed Sunday her affiliation with democratic socialism, describing it as only "part of what I am".
In races across the country, Ocasio-Cortez's endorsement has been an incredible signal-booster, drawing fresh attention to candidates who had been struggling for it.
He shared the image because he felt the house showed a far different from the struggle-filled childhood in the Bronx Ocasio-Cortez claims to have had, but believe it or not the tweet didn't wind up working in his favor.
"I think that you can't win the White House without the Midwest and I don't think you can go too far to the left and still win the Midwest", Duckworth said during the interview.
Progressive political newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed a conservative TV host on Sunday after her suggested the Democratic congressional candidate for NY lied about where she came from.
Ocasio-Cortez said in her campaign video: "I wasn't born to a wealthy or powerful family - mother from Puerto Rico, dad from the South Bronx". Growing up, it was a good town for working people.

"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", she tweeted. After Ocasio-Cortez beat Crowley, the Stila lipstick she wore in her debate against him sold out.
But, Ocasio-Cortez added, "I don't think he knows how to deal with a girl from the Bronx". After the waitress complained to her manager, her take was doubled to $100, a source said.
Cardillo is staring right at the essence of Ocasio-Cortez's message, but he still can't see it. It was clear to her, even then, that the zip code a child was born in determined much of their destiny.
"You consider yourself a Democratic socialist like Bernie Sanders, correct?"
While the Post's article is essentially a non-story, it hasn't stopped conservative Twitter personalities from using it as an attempt to smear the new congressional candidate over her Democratic socialist credentials.
