Nancy Pelosi suffered an embarrassing setback that has everyone asking this question
The fake news media portrays Nancy Pelosi as invincible.
That myth imploded on Tuesday night.
And it’s because Nancy Pelosi suffered an embarrassing setback that has everyone asking this question.
Joseph Kennedy III became the first Kennedy to lose an election in Massachusetts when incumbent Democrat Senator Ed Markey fought off Kennedy’s primary challenge winning a decisive victory.
Sen. Ed Markey beat back Rep. Joe Kennedy’s primary challenge in Massachusetts on Tuesday, striking a blow against the longtime Kennedy political dynasty and notching a significant victory for the Democratic Party’s left wing.
Voters renominated Markey, who has held a seat in Congress since the mid-1970s, over Kennedy, the 39-year-old grandson of Robert F. Kennedy, who attempted to take on a sitting senator rather than wait for a spot in the Democratic hierarchy to open up.
Kennedy called Markey to concede the race shortly before The Associated Press declared a winner, according to Kennedy campaign spokesperson Michael Cummings. With about three-quarters of the vote tallied late Tuesday night, Markey had 54 percent of the vote to Kennedy’s 46 percent.
Markey versus Kennedy was also a proxy war between the rising socialist wing led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Nancy Pelosi.
Ocasio-Cortez backed Markey because of his support for the communist Green New Deal program.
The fake news media claimed that because Joe Biden won the presidential nomination, he proved that “moderates” call the shots in the Democrat Party.
In a Biden presidency, “conventional” Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer would set the policy agenda.
But Nancy Pelosi could not even help deliver a Kennedy a win in Massachusetts.
The energy on the left remains with the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez socialist wing of the party.
