Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a rising star on the left, sparred with the conservative pundit Ben Shapiro on Thursday after Shapiro challenged her to a debate in exchange for a $10,000 campaign donation.

The incumbent, Mr. Joe Crowley, had been in office for a considerable number of years and was widely rumored to be a viable candidate to succeed Nancy Pelosi as Speaker should the Democrats take over the House majority following the midterms. Both are pushing radical ideas such as free healthcare, "Medicare for all", and free college tuition, and, at least with Ocasio-Cortez, open borders.
