Say What? Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez struggled with a question about House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Wednesday night, initially stating that there isn't "any one head" of the Democratic Party. In an interview on CNN's "Cuomo Primetime," anchor Chris Cuomo asked the 28-year-old New Yorker who she believed to be the "head of the Democratic Party." "Well, I don't think that there's any one head," Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, a democratic socialist, replied after giving the question some thought. "We are a collective, this is a movement, and I don't think parties are ever about one person, but they're about the contributions that each one person gives to the party." Mr. Cuomo accused Ms. Ocasio-Cortez of being "intentionally" vague. Ocasio-Cortez also touted Medicare for all as a way to save on funeral expenses, instead of spending on "unlimited war."
