BREAKING: Democrat socialist becomes youngest woman ever elected to Congress
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has won election to the House, easily fending off a challenge from Republican Anthony Pappas in a heavily Democratic district that encompasses parts of Queens and the Bronx.
The win puts Ocasio-Cortez in the history books: at 29 years of age, she is the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, a mark previously held by Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), who came to Washington in 2015 at age 30.
The article goes on to state the following:
Although the contest was never close, Pappas’s campaign was rattled in the closing days, when the Republican candidate revealed that his former wife had taken out a restraining order against him amid accusations of domestic violence. The news prompted local GOP leaders to rescind their support just as voters were heading to the polls.
Ocasio-Cortez’s arrival in Washington will be closely watched. Among the Democratic freshman, she is the unquestionable superstar — an Hispanic liberal activist who’s never held political office and yet ousted one of the most powerful Democrats on Capitol Hill with a populist message à la Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has won New York’s 14th Congressional district.
