Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hasn't won her own Congressional race yet. But she's already taking her campaign national. Just a month ago, the former bartender was largely unknown. Then she unseated longtime Queens Party boss Joe Crowley in New York's Democratic congressional primary. Now she's going to Kansas to campaign with Senator Bernie Sanders, and it'll be her first chance to test her star power on the road. She'll be campaigning for a candidate named Brent Welder in that state's Democratic primary, to be hold on August 7th. The seat covers Kansas City and some of its suburbs, and is... [Read More]

A number of Democrats are doing the things you do when starting a possible presidential campaign. Multiple news outlets have pointed to recent actions of former Vice President Joe Biden and senators Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kamala Harris of California and Bernie Sanders of Vermont, the runner-up in the 2016 primaries. Elizabeth Warren is also on that list. Many know her as a senator from Massachusetts. [Read More]

Showtime is fighting back claims that Sacha Baron Cohen posed as a disabled veteran in his new series "Who Is America?" In a lengthy statement issued Monday, the pay cabler denied that Cohen's character Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., Ph.D., seen in the premiere episode of the series interviewing Sen. Bernie Sanders, claimed to have served... [Read More]

Some Amazon employees in Europe are on strike, and people around the world are boycotting in support. Seth King worked in an Amazon warehouse in Chesterfield, Virginia, for just two months last fall. But it was long enough for him to realize such "grueling, depressing" work conditions were bringing him to "the lowest point in my life." "You spend 10 hours on foot, there's no windows in the place, and you're not allowed to talk to people — there's no interactions allowed," King told Vox. Plus, he added, the paycheck wasn't even enough to cover his bills —... [Read More]
Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has launched an aggressive campaign to defeat Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court. It's taken him from the cable airwaves to a trio of Midwestern states so far. But as he ramps up the effort, the Senator has kept an eye back on D.C. where, he worries, Democrats may not be able to unify the ranks against Trump's pick. "Of course," Sanders told The Daily Beast in an interview last week when asked if he worries about red-state Democrats voting in favor of the nominee as they... [Read More]

The case for (and against) cautious optimism about the rule changes. Democrats are in the process of changing the role of unpledged delegates, or superdelegates, in their presidential nomination process. It might seem puzzling that in the wake of Donald Trump's 2016 takeover of the Republican Party, any party would want to give up control. But the Democrats had problems of their own in 2016, the largest of which was that they lost the election, leaving lots of questions about how the party operates. The proposed changes have been cheered among some in the Democratic Party, including those who... [Read More]

A conservative street artist has vandalized a billboard across the street from CBS Studios in Los Angeles by pasting a fake ad for Sacha Baron Cohen's new Showtime series "Who is America?" over a billboard for the sitcom "Young Sheldon." "It seems there's no depth the Hollywood Left would not sink [to] after hearing Sacha Cohen was running around masquerading as a disabled American veteran," artist Sabo told TheWrap, exclusively, taking credit for the billboard. "And no, the damage control Showtime tried to pull by saying Cohen was equally going after the Left because he took a stab... [Read More]

Showtime Sacha Baron Cohen's new Showtime series, "Who Is America?," caused a stir before its premiere on Sunday, as several Republican politicians felt the need to get ahead of the show last week in explaining how Cohen "duped" them to appear on it. Former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, former congressman Joe Walsh, and former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore were among those who preceded the show's premiere with statements explaining their appearances on the series, and criticizing Cohen. For the show's first episode, Cohen, disguised as an Israeli "anti-terror expert," roped several Republican congressmen... [Read More]

In June, the ten-term congressman Joe Crowley lost the Democratic primary for New York's Fourteenth District to a twenty-eight-year-old democratic socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. This result was a shock to the Democratic establishment, who had thought of Crowley as a likely successor to Nancy Pelosi, the Party's leader in Congress. Ocasio-Cortez's win is a boon to the Party's progressive wing, and it mirrors the rift between the moderate establishment once embodied by Hillary Clinton and the liberal insurgency championed by Bernie Sanders. Across the country, in voting booths and legislative chambers, Democrats are struggling to define a cohesive identity and... [Read More]
