6. It's right there.

Sawant has become an important symbol throughout the country that a democratic, anti-racist, feminist, socialist alternative to the Democratic Party is possible.

There are a LOT of folks with a strong investment that the US can only ever be a '2 party' country. The idea that third party candidates can be anything other than a fluke threatens the basis upon which they've set themselves up in power while at the same time pretending that any serious changes are impossible, that the best we can hope for from the left is 'minor, incremental' changes.
