Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Democratic Primary Opponent Will Remain on the Ballot Because of Some Bullshit  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Democratic Primary Opponent Will Remain on the Ballot Because of Some Bullshit 

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old Democratic congressional primary winner who simultaneously rouses feelings of inspiration and deep inadequacy within my young, icy heart, will not be the sole Democrat on the November ballot in her district.

Rudy Giuliani loves to pride himself on how he’s the savior of New York—even though he set up the city for its eventual blanket gentrification via draconian laws, among other destructive tactics—because he happened to be the mayor during 9/11, a fact he likes to bring up a lot.
