Former FBI director James Comey pleaded with Democrats Sunday not to veer toward the “socialist left.” The tweet was a follow-up to an earlier message from the longtime Republican that urged Americans to vote for the Democratic Party in the November elections to protect “the country’s values.”Democrats, please, please don’t lose your minds and rush to the socialist left. This president and his Republican Party are counting on you to do exactly that. This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that “Ambition must ... counteract ambition.” All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall. One possible future for the Democrats — young, female and socialist — emerged in the primary victory of Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 28, over ten-term Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley in New York City last month. Some supported backing moderate Democrats, while others called for veering further left.
