Cortez must be stopped - she is an idiot. Two years after young progressive Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shook the national Democratic Party by defeating former New York Rep. Joe Crowley in a primary, several longtime New York City area representatives are facing primary challenges — and being the establishment candidate may not be enough to see them through.
Reps. Eliot Engel, Jerry Nadler and Nita Lowey are three New York metropolitan area candidates facing primary challenges in 2020. Jamaal Bowman, a Bronx middle school principal and one of three candidates challenging the 16-term Engel, has been endorsed by Justice Democrats, the group that helped propel Ocasio-Cortez to power.
Nadler, the powerful chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is also facing three primary challengers, including former state official Lindsey Boylan, who raised over a quarter of a million dollars in the second quarter of 2019.
