SURPRISE! Ocasio-Cortez Wins Election in Another Bronx District She Wasn’t Even Running In

First Ocasio-Cortez stunned the nation when she beat the powerful Queens Democratic Party boss and incumbent Rep Joseph Crowley of the 14th congressional district last month.

Now last night it was revealed by the Daily News that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also won a primary in a district she wasn’t even running in!

According to the Daily News, she beat out incumbent Jose E Serrano of the 15th congressional district (which covers the South Bronx) under the Reform Party write-in primary.

Neither Serrano nor Ocasio-Cortez were running under that party and let alone Ocasio-Cortez who campaigned in the 14th which straddles The Bronx and Queens.

She tweeted: “Shockingly — and I’m told this is not a joke — we have ALSO won a primary in the neighboring 15th Congressional District via write-in campaign on the Reform line!,” she tweeted. “While I am honored that so many Bronxites are excited about our campaign, I will remain the Dem nominee for NY-14.”

Congratulations once again, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and we can’t wait for you to officially be our congresswoman!

I guess it’s not just Trump who isn’t ready for you!
