“The Story Too Many Reporters Are Missing in the Democratic Primary Results”:

It is true that Ocasio-Cortez ran on medicare for all, tuition-free public college, a federal jobs guarantee, and criminal justice reform. Those are all things that will be discussed among Democrats when/if they take back control of Congress. As I’ve suggested for a while now, the Democratic Party is blessed with a plethora of ideas for how to reach their shared goals around equal opportunity for all. That is what diversity looks like and no one should mistake it for a Democratic civil war.

Whether it’s a Puerto Rican woman representing the Bronx and Queens or a Native American woman representing the people in the first congressional district of New Mexico, the truth is that the Democratic Party is changing in much the same way the country is changing, while the Republicans are attempting to tap into the fears associated with the demise of white patriarchy. That is the story a lot of reporters missed in covering this race.
