A radical leftist backed by socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) won her primary for Queens District Attorney in New York City Tuesday night.
“Cabán, endorsed by fellow progressives like Bronx-Queens Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, got 39.6 percent of the vote to Katz’s 38.3 percent, with 99 percent of precincts reporting,” The Post said.
Based on her Twitter profile, Cabán ran her campaign on a neo-Marxist, identity politics focused platform.
“We have built the most powerful, the most diverse, the most beautiful coalition that a borough-wide race has ever seen. From formerly incarcerated folks to sex workers to undocumented immigrants to community-based organizations & activists to local & national elected officials,” she said.

She is also expected to bring her radical leftism to work as Queens District Attorney.
“We built a campaign to reduce recidivism. Decriminalize poverty. End mass incarceration. To protect our immigrant communities. Keep people rooted in their communities with the access to support and services,” she said.

Lowering expectations for herself, she noted later that “Transforming this system will not be easy, and it will not happen overnight.”
Ocasio-Cortez celebrated the victory on Twitter.
“We meet a machine with a movement,” she said when the election results were announced.

All of New York City, including Queens, is dominated by Democrats. It is all but certain that Cabán will win in her general election.

‘You Should Be Backing Bernie Sanders’: Nigel Farage Celebrates Democrat Party Extremism at CPAC
Brexit mastermind Nigel Farage talked about the success of populism in his home nation of Britain and abroad while giving a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Md.
“I take it you’re a pro-Brexit crowd!” Farage said to wild applause to start his speech, describing himself as CPAC’s “resident foreign speaker.”
Farage called deposed former Tory Prime Minister Theresa May the worst Prime Minister in the history of the United Kingdom to start his speech and talked about the formation of his new political entity.
“We ironically became the largest delegation in the European Parliament of any European country,” Farage said of his Brexit party, also crediting his party’s success with the resignation of May.
“Boris has become the leader, and Boris to date has picked up every word and every phrase that I have stood and fought for for nearly 30 years. It’s really great news, and it means at long last we have finally left the European Union!” Farage exclaimed.
He boasted about being the most “notorious” MEP in the history of European parliament, and he was happy to be finished in dealing with the European Union.
“I don’t just want the United Kingdom to leave the European Union. I want Europe to leave the European Union,” he said.
Farage credited former Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn with helping to strengthen the Tory coalition united around the Brexit. He believes that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) can do the same thing to the Republican Party in the U.S.
“You should be backing Bernie Sanders. You should be campaigning for Bernie Sanders. You should be donating money to Bernie Sanders. You should be making sure that Bernie Sanders gets that nomination. You need a Democrat Party as far left-wing, as anti-American as they possibly can be,” he explained.
“Not only will you get four more years of this great President Trump, but I think with Bernie, you won’t just get Trump. With Bernie, I think you can re-take the House too!” he added.
Farage talked up President Trump, who he described as his “friend,” as leading the fight to end globalism.
“You are part of a big moment in history, and with four more years of Donald Trump, we will complete the job,” Farage said to conclude his speech, which ended the second day of the CPAC event. It will conclude after Saturday when Trump addresses the event.
