THE GIRL FROM THE BRONX
Who knew her name before the recent primaries?
I don’t think many.
She was the upset of the evening.
I’m so very glad for her; mainly because she has Puerto Rican heritage and also because she brings new ideas which are very much needed in the current political climate.
I wish her the best and hope that the ‘monsters’ in Washington don’t have the ability to change or corrupt her.
Here’s to you, Alex!!
A former Bernie Sanders organizer, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortéz of Queens, New York City won the democrats spot in the 2018 primary elections over incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley. A 28-year-old Latina woman, Ocasio-Cortez may also be one of the youngest elected to House, at age 28. Check out our extended interview with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Alexandria (born October 13, 1989) is an American democratic socialist, activist, educator, community organizer, and politician.

After securing a stunning upset victory over long-term incumbent Joe Crowley in Tuesday’s Democratic primary, June 26, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortéz has suddenly become a household name.
The 28-year-old, who’s all but guaranteed to be the next congresswoman for New York’s 14th District, appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to talk about the surprise over her win and facing off against Drumpf.
Most significantly, she unpacked democratic socialism – an ideology that’s still unfamiliar, and perhaps frightening, to many – for a massive late-night TV audience.
“I believe that in a modern, moral, and wealthy society, no person in America should be too poor to live,” she explained.
“What that means to me is health care as a human right, it means that every child no matter where you are born should have access to a college or trade-school education if they so choose it.
I think that no person should be homeless if we have public structures or public policy to allow for people to have homes and food and lead a dignified life in the United States.”
