Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez failed her first major test on how much influence she has in pushing progressive Democrat's far-left agenda as the majority of the candidates that she endorsed lost last night.
Ocasio-Cortez, who is the Democratic nominee in New York's 14th congressional district, endorsed six candidates, four of whom lost on Tuesday night.
The New York Post reports that "Ocasio-Cortez stumped for Abdul El-Sayed for governor of Michigan, Fayrouz Saad in the Wolverine State’s 11th congressional district and Cori Bush in Missouri’s 1st District."
El-Sayed lost, Saad got blown out, and Bush went down in flames.
The fourth Ocasio-Cortez-backed candidate to lose was Brent Welder, a congressional candidate in Kansas' 3rd district, who lost to Sharice Davids in a competitive race.
James Thompson, a congressional candidate in Kansas' 4th district, won last night as did Rashida Tlaib, a congressional candidate in Michigan looking to fill the seat of disgraced Democratic Rep. John Conyers.
