I'm afraid the DSA (yes, I joined) comrade and I have different notions of what it means to "seize power":

Jacobin: But then on the other side, you have people saying socialists should only run outside the Democratic Party. What’s your answer to them?

Julia Salazar: They should tell that to the over 150,000 people in my district, who are living in fear every day of being displaced from their homes, and who are registered Democrats in a state with closed primaries. It’s unquestionably strategic here in New York — though not everywhere, I should add — to run as a Democrat if you want to seize power as a leftist. To mobilize people around socialist politics you have to engage Democratic voters, and you can’t do that in any meaningful way without running on the Democratic Party line in my district
