Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez endorsed several candidates in the primary elections, but three out of five of those competing in the Tuesday races lost.

Ocasio-Cortez went on a tour around the U.S. endorsing candidates Abdul El-Sayed for governor of Michigan, Fayrouz Saad for Michigan’s 11th congressional district, Cori Bush for Missouri’s 1st congressional district and James Thompson for Kansas’ 4th congressional district.

Ocasio-Cortez also appeared at a “My Muslim Vote” rally in Michigan in July, where she urged voters to send Rashida Tlaib to Congress. Tlaib won her primary on Tuesday evening.

Thompson was the other candidate to win his primary.

Despite her congressional primary victory in New York in June and weeks of national attention discussing her socialist platform, the three candidates Ocasio-Cortez would have liked win, did not.

El-Sayed lost his bid for the Democratic nomination to Gretchen Whitmer, gaining 30.5 percent of the vote to her 51.8 percent.

Saad is currently in fourth place out of five candidates for Michigan’s 11th district, with only 18 percent of the vote with 86 percent of precincts reported.

Cori Bush also lost her bid for the Democratic house seat in Missouri’s 1st district, receiving only 36.9 percent of the vote to William Lacy Clay’s 56.7 percent.

Ocasio-Cortez endorsed congressional candidate Kaniela Ing in Hawaii for the race taking place on Aug. 11.

Ing’s race in Hawaii takes place on Aug. 11, and he is not currently seen as a front-runner. Ing was fined $15,422 in June for campaign spending violations and has been criticized on the campaign trail for claiming a master’s degree that he hasn’t earned.

Editor’s Note: This post has been updated to note not all candidates Ocasio-Cortez endorsed lost. Two additional candidates Ocasio-Cortez endorsed, Rashida Tlaib and James Thompson, did win their primaries Tuesday.

    Agreed, Vernon!
    That bug-eyed psycho socialist doesn’t have a CLUE. She just spews nonsense that’s being spoon-fed to her from her MUSLIM masters. She EMBARRASSES Boston U with her blatant, arrogant empty-headed drivel. Has anybody checked the roots of her hair? She seems “blonde” to me!
    Go back to the slimey rock you climbed out from under, MUSLIM undercover.

    Socialist Cortez needs to endorse all Dems in the midterms and help them with their ads.

    Glad to see that Americans still reject socialism, in there rejection of Cortez. Doesn’t say much for the New York voter.

    This woman is such a young political Novice. Does she REALLY think that her little menial endorsement will mean anything in a vote? Well, apparently, it DID…in the wrong direction. YAY! KEEP ENDORSING THEN. All she is doing is making a complete fool of herself and her “party.”

    So what is it? Every Candidate lost in the primaries or three of five lost. Headline says one thing, article says another. I hate this type of reporting. Sounds more like CNN when you do that crap.
