Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Just Won Second Primary In District She Didn’t Run In: ‘I Am Honored’

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has shocked the public yet again. Just two weeks after winning against a powerful opponent in a New York Democratic primary race, Ocasio-Cortez secured another primary – one where she wasn’t even running in.

According to the New York Daily News, Ocasio-Cortez’s name was entered as a write-in in her neighboring district, in New York City’s Bronx borough. She ultimately went on to win the primary.

After Tuesday night’s results, Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to thank everyone who voted.

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!”

“While I am honored that so many Bronxites are excited about our campaign, I will remain the Dem nominee for NY-14.”
