Rough Night for Socialist Ocasio-Cortez — Middle America Endorsements Lose Bigly
Brooklyn socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Brown traveled to Middle America last month to campaign for several far left Democrats.
Ocasio endorsed several far-left candidates who are as ignorant on economic policy as she is.
Kaniela Ing, Hawaii
Kerri Harris, Delaware
Brent Welder and James Thompson, Kansas
Abdul El-Sayed and Rashida Tlaib, Michigan
Cori Bush, Missouri
Zephyr Teachout, New York
Ayanna Pressley, Massachusetts (more below)
Linsey Fagan, Texas

But it didn’t quite work out the way she wanted.
Unfortunately, for Democrats — Middle America is not jumping on board their Socialist crazy train.
Ocasio got swept Tuesday in Democrat primaries.
American Mirror reported:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s record on Tuesday night for her chosen primary candidates was as bare as a Venezuelan supermarket shelf.
The socialist pulled off a stunning victory last month in New York, and is now attempting to parlay that win into helping other leftists win Democratic primaries.
Cortez held a whirl-wind tour of the U.S., stumping for Abdul El-Sayed for governor of Michigan, Fayrouz Saad in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District, Cori Bush in Missouri’s 1st District, and is backing Congressional candidate Kaniela Ing in Hawaii.
El-Sayed lost his bid for the Democrat nomination for governor to 51.8 percent to 30.5 percent, according to numbers published by the New York Times.
Saad came in fourth in the five-way race, capturing only 18 percent of the vote.
Cori Bush lost her primary to William Lacy Clay, 56.7 percent to 36.9 percent, the Times results show.
