Crowley has long been in tight with the financial establishment and most of his donations came from mega-corporations. His challenger was largely financed by small, individual donations. Ocasio-Cortez is a self-described socialist whose views on the Middle East seem to contrast with Crowley’s strong pro-Israel position. Should we cheer this challenge to the status quo, or fear creeping socialism? Tune in to today’s Liberty Report:
