Ocasio-Cortez Appears in Video to Oust Incumbent Dems

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is throwing her support behind a movement that seeks to oust incumbent Democrats in favor of more radical replacements.

In a promotional video, Ocasio-Cortez locks arms with Justice Democrats, which runs a recruitment program by which activists can nominate grassroots candidates for office. The Justice Democrats had backed her longshot bid against incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley last year.

“I think we as Justice Democrats have a chance to really transform the Democratic Party,” says executive director Alexandra Rojas as Ocasio-Cortez nods.
