(AmericanProsperity.com) – Three democratic socialist congressional candidates endorsed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) did not fare so well on Super Tuesday.
For months, AOC has been squabbling with establishment Democrats over the $5 million she has raised for her political action committee (PAC) Courage to Change. The PAC supports progressive candidates willing to primary against moderate Democrats.
With the full support of AOC, three far-left primary challengers in Texas and California underperformed.
Texas congressional candidate Jessica Cisneros fell short of defeating the pro-gun moderate, nine-term incumbent Rep. Henry Cuellar (R-TX). Cisneros also received support from presidential candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
I am so incredibly proud of Jessica Cisneros.
At 26 years old, she ran for office for the first time to offer TX28 new leadership that fights for workers, gender rights,& a climate agenda.
She stood up to Koch brother money & incumbency, & she came closer than anyone imagined. https://t.co/3NiBVMfDrf

Also, Christina Tzintzun Ramirez lost to establishment-backed candidate MJ Hegar to face off against Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) in November. Ramirez came in third place with only 13.3% of the vote.
Finally, Georgette Gomez barely made the initial cut in California’s 53rd district in San Diego County, losing by 9.5 points but still coming in second place. By California law, Gomez will appear on the November ballot as the state allows the top two candidates to appear there.
