At 6.1% Ing is the Biggest Socialist Loser in USA

CURSE OF CORTEZ? ANOTHER candidate endorsed by socialist darling loses badly

by Kyle Olson, American Mirror, August 11, 2018

Is an endorsement smooch from the socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez actually a kiss of electoral death?

For Hawaii congressional candidate Kaniela Ing, the answer was yes, as he became the fourth high-profile endorsee of Cortez to go down in flames in a primary this week, based on returns.

The Hawaii Civil Beat reported in July:

… Ing, who bills himself as a democratic socialist, has seemingly found little traction among local voters in the race to fill the open seat for Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District.

Ing lagged far behind the leaders among likely Democratic voters in the poll.

Another publication indicated Ing came in fourth in a recent poll.

It turns out Cortez’s support did nothing for his chances, and in fact, it may have hurt them.  

(Editor's Note: I'll beg to differ on that one.  Ing was at 3.8% on First Read--all absentee votes cast before Cortez' rally in Kapahulu.  But the final result for Ing is 6.1% which means that Cortez' rally may have DOUBLED or TRIPLED Ing's results with Election Day voters--without getting him out of single digits.)

Returns published by the New York Times show Cortez’s preferred candidate, Kaniela Ing, came in a distant FIFTH in a field of seven candidates.

Ing captured a measly 6.1 percent of the vote, compared to the winner, Ed Case, who won 40.4 percent.

The socialist Cortez pulled off a stunning victory New York’s June primary, and is now attempting to parlay that win into helping other leftists win Democratic primaries — but that’s not quite panning out.

 

 

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

@Ocasio2018

We’ve got about ONE WEEK LEFT until a whole slew of elections come up across the country.
From
@KanielaIng & @SaadforCongress to @AbdulElSayed & @CoriBush, it’s time to leave it all on the field.
Check your state primary date & VOTE August 7th + 11th.

1:33 PM - Jul 31, 2018

Cortez held a whirl-wind tour of the U.S., stumping for Abdul El-Sayed for governor of Michigan, Fayrouz Saad in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District, Cori Bush in Missouri’s 1st District, and was backing Congressional candidate Kaniela Ing in Hawaii.

El-Sayed lost his bid for the Democrat nomination for governor to Gretchen Whitmer 51.8 percent to 30.5 percent, according to numbers published by the New York Times.

Saad came in fourth in the five-way race, capturing only 18 percent of the vote.

Cori Bush lost her primary to William Lacy Clay, 56.7 percent to 36.9 percent, the Times results show.

(Editor’s note: At 6.1% Ing is the biggest socialist loser in the USA.  But the movement is not over.  The Federal Election Commission is only just starting to dig into Ing’s campaign finances.  We suggest ‘movement’ to Brazil.  No extradition treaty.)
