Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., was removed from the primary ballot of the progressive group Working Families Party, after coming up two signatures shy, according to the New York Daily News.
The union-supported group, which calls itself the “Tea Party of the left,” is an independent political party that allows votes across ballot lines to keep Democrats honest and to avoid having their vote taken for granted.
Ocasio-Cortez received only 13 signatures from members of the WFP, keeping her off the group’s ballot line in the November general election. Her Democrat opponent is former CNBC contributor Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, who thinks AOC cannot relate to the working-class people in her district.
