Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is an educator, organizer, and third generation New Yorker who challenged and defeated 20-year incumbent Representative Joe Crowley in the June 26th Democratic Primary.
Ocasio2018 began over a year ago as a small, corporate-free campaign on tiny odds. It has since exploded into one of the most closely watched and hotly contested primary elections in the nation.
Alexandria is fighting to enact Improved and Expanded Medicare-for-all, a Federal Jobs Guarantee, Tuition-Free College, Criminal Justice Reform and more — not in a hundred years, but right now.
Thousands of Bronx and Queens residents organized around Alexandria’ candidacy to trigger the first NY-14 primary election in 14 years. Ocasio is the only candidate who doesn’t take corporate lobbyist PAC money. She’s the only candidate who lives in the district. And she’s the best candidate to represent the district because of her advocacy, on-the-ground commitment, and working class roots. She fights for us because she’s #OneOfUs.
