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.

PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks
The Democrat complained about masks.
New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.
Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”
This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.
Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.
Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
