Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren said that the chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) calling socialist Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the "future" of the party will make it easier for Republicans come November.

DNC Chairman Tom Perez gave Ocasio-Cortez high praise on Tuesday on "The Bill Press Show," dubbing her "the future of our party."

Ocasio-Cortez defeated incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D-Queens) in a shocking upset in New York's 14th Congressional District primary last week.

On "Fox & Friends," Lahren said that even though seeing self-proclaimed socialists winning primaries terrifies her, it makes her happy as a member of the opposing party because it means that Democrats are "finally being transparent."

"As a Trump supporter and as a conservative, I think it's going to make the midterms easier for us because the American people are smarter than that," Lahren said.

She said that Middle America doesn’t want to see socialism succeed.

"I don't think we're going to see a blue wave; in fact, I think we're going to see a red wave stronger than ever," Lahren said.
