[Ed. – The only surprise here is that voters in New York’s 14th haven’t wised up any in the past two years.]
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had a blowout win in her district’s Democratic primary.
Ocasio-Cortez warded off three Democratic primary challengers in New York’s 14th Congressional District. The freshman lawmaker noted on social media Tuesday evening that her surprise upset in 2018 was not a “fluke.”
Ocasio-Cortez, a Democratic socialist, shocked political pundits after defeating 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley during the 2018 midterms.
“Our win was treated as an aberration, or (because) my opponent ‘didn’t try,’” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a tweet. “So from the start, tonight’s race was important to me. Tonight we are proving that the people’s movement in NY isn’t an accident. It‘s a mandate.”
