Civil War Breaks Out Between Dems

The Democrats in New York are facing a new civil war over an alleged third party run. Fox News reports:

So much for Democrats coming together in New York’s 14th congressional district.

A feud erupted Thursday on Twitter between Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and outgoing Democratic Rep. Joseph Crowley — the longtime congressman Ocasio-Cortez shockingly defeated in New York’s primaries last month. The victor claimed the incumbent is now mounting a third-party bid.

[email protected] stated on live TV that he would absolutely support my candidacy,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Thursday. “Instead, he’s stood me up for all 3 scheduled concession calls.”

The 28-year-old progressive Democrat added: “Now, he’s mounting a 3rd party challenge against me and the Democratic Party- and against the will of @NYWFP.”

This primary upset has thrown a wrench in the Democrat Party’s attempt to maintain a united front this midterm election.
