New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wins Second Term

In a landslide victory against Republican challenger John Cummings.

Following a landslide victory, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been re-elected to congress. Going up against a first-time Republican challenger, 60-year-old Catholic high school teacher and former NYC police officer John Cummings, the race is the second most expensive House contest in the country.

Cummings raised more than $10 million USD going up against Ocasio-Cortez, and hired Republican consultants, spent millions of dollars on advertising and distributed more than 700,000 pieces of mail across the New York district. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez raised $17 million USD herself in campaign contributions, and won the race by nearly 37 percentage points.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or AOC like most young people call her, is the youngest woman to have been elected to congress, and there is much speculation regarding her future in politics and whether she will be pursuing politics at a higher level. By 2024, she will have reached age 35, meaning she is eligible to run for both Vice President and President.
