As Bill Thompson rallied supporters in Astoria on Sunday, Representative Joe Crowley told him that “young Democrats” are “key.”
Then, Crowley tried stressing that point, and joked about how that could lead to some potentially awkward phrasing.
“I was struggling. I said I need to youthenize the Democratic party. No, that’s not a good word,” he said, to some laughter. “I need to make this party youthful.”
“There you go,” said Thompson.
