The most famous member of congress, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of The Bronx Has cruised to a landslide victory in her re-election bid.
No matter how hard Republicans tried to paint her as unfit to represent the district and out of touch with reality not to mention the horrific personal attacks laced with outright misogyny, the district spoke and decided to send AOC back to congress.
With 66% of precincts reporting, Ocasio-Cortez is in a comfortable lead with 68.6% of the vote versus Republican challenger John Cummings at 30.8% despite having raised $10 million to unseat her.
Michelle Caruso-Cabrera is at an embarrassing 0.7% of the vote.
This was the second most expensive race for congress in the country during the 2020 election cycle.
Congratulations Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez!
