How Bernie and AOC Won BIG On Tuesday, Episode 1288
Despite what the Democratic establishment wants you to believe, Tuesday was a big win for The Left. America’s Left is now more powerful and more influential than at any time since 1972. On Tuesday, Minneapolis voted in favor of rent control; Cleveland voted in favor of a comprehensive groundbreaking crack down on police brutality; Austin voted to defund the police; Progressive Larry Krasner made history by getting reelected as Philadelphia’s district attorney; Cleveland, Boston and Pittsburgh elected progressive mayors; Phil Murphy, not quite progressive but almost, became New Jersey’s first Democratic governor to win a second term since 1977; Shontel Brown kept Marcia Fudge’s Democratic congressional seat. Democrats only lost Virginia, and only Virginia, because they ran Terry McAuliffe– a Neoliberal Wall Street flunky with a criminal past who stood for NOTHING other than more of the same. On today’s show we explain in detail why Democrats only win when they run to the Left.
