The video-which offers a $10K donation to Ocasio-Cortez's campaign (or the charity of her choice, as he later offered) in exchange for her participation-comes one day after Ocasio's highly criticized appearance on CNN Wednesday night, where she stumbled on her words while answering a question about Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

This new breed of Democrat does not sit favorably with conservatives in general, with numerous right-wing figures attacking Ocasio-Cortez on social media. She said while the president's party typically faces rough sledding in his first midterm election, Michigan Republicans have a better record of getting out the vote than Democrats do. "We see it happening all across the country". And she touted her experience during her victory speech in Detroit.

Kansas was kinder to Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez's preferred candidates, but they still only emerged with a split decision.

"And I like to think that even though I'm not going to get the opportunity to serve, that we've ignited a belief in what is possible among young people who never before saw themselves in somebody running for office".

Republicans say they expected higher Democratic turnout. Whitmer also won slightly more than half of the Democratic votes, while El-Sayed received more than 30 percent to Thanedar's 17 percent. The female candidates defeated their male opponents in 45 of the 65 races (69%). Although she later revealed the interview was satire, there was no indication of this when it was posted on Facebook. Few national Democrats give James Thompson, the candidate Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders stumped for in Wichita, a real chance of winning against GOP Rep. Ron Estes in November. While not technically considered slander, it's a dirty trick that often influences the opinions of the less-than well-informed politically.

"She said her piece and put it out there, and that's all we have to say", he said from Hawaii, where Ocasio-Cortez is campaigning for a fellow democratic socialist and congressional candidate, Kaniela Ing.

"I feel really good about it", she told Chris Cuomo. "The people who are supportive of the president are very supportive, they're very enthusiastic", said Anderson, adding that the GOP also will have to appeal to independent swing voters.

In other forums, such as the Jewish Community Relations Council, I have stated that she should come forward and at least indicate a desire to open her mind to the reasons for Israel's defensive actions. "In the United States, we are witnessing the opposite reaction to the tyranny of a deathbot: Donald Trump".

"For me, I'm a firm believer in finding a two-state solution in this issue, and I'm happy to sit down with leaders on both of these".

"I'm here to tell you: right here right now, come November, the red wave is coming right through MI", he said.
