For years the image of who drives change in our democracy has reflected an old narrative of straight white men in smoky rooms. 

The Beat DC blows through that trope. 

We’re the only daily political news platform that highlights the people of color driving policy in the nation’s capital and beyond, and the policies that impact communities of color at large. 

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Sigue Ganando

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Sigue Ganando

NY congressional candidate and Democratic breakout star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has won another primary -- this time, in New York’s 15th Congressional District. The Reform Party held a write-in primary and invited unaffiliated voters to submit their preferred candidates, and on Tuesday, the city Board of Elections certified Ocasio-Cortez’s write-in victory. Of the 22 people who received write-in votes, Ocasio-Cortez got the most with nine, beating incumbent Congressman José Serrano (D). “Shockingly — and I’m told this is not a joke — we have ALSO won a primary in the neighboring 15th Congressional District via write-in campaign on the Reform line!,” she tweeted. “While I am honored that so many Bronxites are excited about our campaign, I will remain the Dem nominee for NY-14.” Ocasio-Cortez, who shocked the establishment when she beat incumbent Congressman Joe Crowley in June’s Democratic primary, will face Republican Anthony Pappas in the November midterm election. More here.
