[August 05, 2020]    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Long-time U.S. Representative William Lacy Clay was ousted on Tuesday by progressive challenger Cori Bush in the Missouri Democratic primary, the New York Times said.


Bush was endorsed by the Justice Democrats, the same left-wing group that helped launch Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez two years ago. Bush became a community activist after Black man Michael Brown was fatally shot by police in 2014. She and the congressman are both Black.
