'Washington Times' columnist Charlie Hurt told FNC's Tucker Carlson on Wednesday that the Democratic Party is undergoing a "Tea Party-esqe" reckoning with the radical left. Like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unseating New York Rep. Joe Crowley, mainstream Democratic leaders are in danger of having their seats swiped by "Democratic Socialists."
Hurt also said that like the Tea Party in 2010, many of these new Democrats are, "a little rough around the edges."
"You look at some of these Tea Party candidates, they weren't the best candidates... but at the end of the day, they were Constitutionalists like Mike Lee. They might be annoying, but they loved the country."
"These people are communists," Hurt said, about their Democratic counterparts. "And that is a real problem. Democrats are going to have to contend with this, and this is not the last sitting Democrat who is going to be ousted by some socialist who wants free stuff for everybody that comes out of nowhere."
