A story on The Christian Science Monitor about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the new member of Congress from a Queens district, describes how the rival she beat in the primary had plenty of support in the district with a liberal voting record, but that things changed when Trump was elected. Jacob Neiheisel, assistant professor of political science, was quoted: “You had to be the right flavor of liberal.”
