It appears the old guard of the Democratic Party might soon be relieved of duty.

Senator Dianne Feinstein and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, both of California, face challenges to their power, while the defeat of a third long-time Democrat, Representative Joe Crowley, by socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (shown) might well send the message that party is moving even further left.

The interesting thread running through all three stories is this: All three challengers, such as they are, are Hispanic, a sign of the party’s demographic change. Their targets are the party’s aging, mostly white, leadership.
