Meet the Socialist Marine & Anti-Police Brutality Protester Who Won Democratic Seats in November

– Can the emergence of non-traditional candidates help revive a faltering Democratic Party that is facing its lowest approval rating in nearly a quarter century? We speak with two Democrats who won key races with support from grassroots sources outside of the Democratic Party. In Charlotte, North Carolina, Braxton Winston is a former middle school football coach who took to the streets in 2015 along with hundreds of people to protest the police killing of Keith Lamont Scott. We also speak with Lee Carter, a Democratic Socialist and former Marine who unseated the Republican majority whip of Virginia’s House of Delegates.

    When the novelty wears off you'll still be left with DNC puppets. Hope they prove me wrong but they won't.

    Establishment Democrats are on the way out. They don't realize it yet and they're fighting tooth and nail to stay relevant. Problem is that people are done with 2 conservative parties and it's long overdue to have the workers represented again.

    There are enough people who remember learning that government jobs are supposed to be public service. Furthermore, the younger generations have grown up under constant war and corporate rule. These two groups of people, no matter where they stand on the political spectrum, are getting ready to change things for the better.

    Yeah i understand he served for whatever reason, it's part of his credentials, but please stop strutting out "marine" every time. you can't support a socialist and glorify the most brutal symbol of imperialist oppression of the 21st century in the same breath. Almost seems like a subconscious attempt at seeking patriotic chauvinistic approval.

    Venezuela has worked out well for revolution! Eating your dog and living in misery is a great outcome to shoot for Marxists.

    Weird that Bernie rolled over and sold out like the pig he is. Too bad the millennials can’t form complete sentences, work and be taken seriously.

    I live in Charlotte, voted for Braxton. Also, interesting to find out but not surprising, the Democrats abandoned Lee Carter but he still won anyway.

    It's over with the Democrats, just like the Socialists in Europe which are similar to Democrats.
