In yet another sign of the ideological dispute within the Democratic party, a socialist candidate defeated a long-time Democrat incumbent in the primary for a New York senate seat.

Julia Salazar, a Democratic Socialist candidate, defied critics to defeat 16-year incummbent New York State Senator Marty Dilan. Dilan, who is 67 years old, was running for the 13th term in office.

“This was a brutal race, they knew we were a threat to the concentration of wealth and power in this state,” Salazar said in her victory speech. “This is a victory for the oppressed!”

The victory is inspiring comparisons to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who shocked the political world by defeating a party boss for the nomination for New York’s 14th district.
