Up-and-coming Democrat stumps for challenger to incumbent St. Louis congressman

Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez were also scheduled to attend a rally Friday evening in support of Brent Welder, one of six Democrats running the 3rd Congressional District primary.

Jake DeGroot, a volunteer for Ocasio-Cortez's campaign, said other campaigns have approached them for advice and asked about some of the tools they used, like an app to enhance voter engagement.

"We won across demographics", Ocasio-Cortez said. "Whether you live in Vermont or the Bronx or Kansas, you are outraged by a situation in which three people in this country own more wealth than the bottom half of America", he continued.

"There is no decision about the party leader until we win the House first", Ocasio-Cortez said, In response to host Margaret Brennan's question on to whether she'd consider endorsing Pelosi for speaker.

Sherri Lower, a 67-year-old retired emergency medical technician, showed up at the Wichita rally wearing a t-shirt that read: "We Care".

"I think that she has an important voice in the Democratic Party, but the reality is that if we are going to be a majority party".

Liberals have argued that to win some of the more hard races on Democrats' target list, they'll have to drum up support not just from traditional voter bases but new voters who lean more progressive. And Democratic Socialist candidates are popping up across the country. Voters in this district are quite intelligent. "If someone would describe the 3rd District, I would say center-right".

Liberals argue that they are not just convincing moderate Democrats or disaffected Republicans but also engaging new primary voters, as Ocasio-Cortez did in NY this summer and as Sanders did in his insurgent 2016 presidential campaign. And despite surging energy among leftist Democrats in the Trump era, it was unclear if there were enough votes in the 3rd District for a liberal Democrat to win.

Before Yoder won in 2010, it had been held for 12 years by centrist Democrat Dennis Moore, who relied on moderate Republicans during his tenure. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) proved that their agenda demanding economic justice has far-reaching appeal as they addressed packed and enthusiastic two events in Kansas.

Looking out into a packed auditorium in Wichita, Sanders said, "people told me Kansas was a Republican state".

Republican Ron Estes narrowly defeated Thompson in an April 2017 special election for the same seat, despite the district having voted for Donald Trump by about 30 percentage points in 2016.

"I think Democrats are going to do extremely well". "So, if you have never knocked on a door before, I am talking to you".
