Socialist star Ocasio-Cortez strikes out: All endorsed candidates lose Tuesday primaries
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 50.1 percent to 34.6 percent, according to numbers published by the New York Times.
Saad came in fourth in the five-way race, capturing only 20.1 percent of the vote.
Cori Bush lost her primary to William Lacy Clay, 62.3 percent to 30.2 percent, the Times results show.
Hawaii’s primary election will be August 11. Stay tuned to see if Ing fairs any better.
