Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez said that democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the future of the Democratic Party, during an interview on “The Bill Press Show” on Tuesday.

Ocasio-Cortez defeated Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY), the chair of the House Democratic Caucus, in a stunning upset last month.

Host Bill Press asked Perez about Ocasio-Cortez’s victory, and what it means for the direction of the Democratic Party going forward.

“Well, my daughters — I have three kids — two of whom — one just graduated college, one is in college, and they were both texting me about their excitement over Alexandria. She represents the future of our party,” Perez said. “She ran a spirited campaign. I have great respect for Joe Crowley. Joe Crowley is a good Democrat — one of the sponsors of the ‘Medicare for All’ bill.”
