A Democratic socialist from New York will have another four years to stir up controversy after she was re-elected to Congress.
New York City residents have voted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) back into public office at the general election on Nov. 3.
At the time of publication, more than 153,300 ballots had been counted from which Ocasio-Cortez had 68.8% and Republican candidate John Cummings had 30.6%, and Serve America Movement candidate Michelle Caruso-Cabrera 0.7% according to Google.
Ocasio-Cortez spent her first term trying to impeach President Trump, convince all Americans to refuse to return to work even after CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus restrictions were lifted, and demonize fellow Congress members who complained she is a difficult person.
Despite failing to achieve these objectives, Ocasio-Cortez still declared she had achieved a lot during her first four years in office.
“Progress does not happen without the work,” she said on Twitter. “Thank you to all the organizers—electoral and beyond—who have put in so much effort to register, educate, protect, create, and build this year. You are so deeply appreciated.”
Ocasio-Cortez was pleased to win New York’s 14th congressional district because Cummings had a much bigger campaign budget than she did.
“Thank you to the Bronx and Queens for re-electing me to the House despite the millions spent against us, and trusting me to represent you once more,” she said on Twitter. “Serving NY-14 and fighting for working-class families in Congress has been the greatest honor, privilege, and responsibility of my life.”
She admitted the Democratic Party had failed to attract enough support from voters of Latin American background and blamed the party for not doing enough to avoid losing several seats to the Republican Party in Florida.
“I will not comment much on tonight’s results as they are evolving and ongoing but I will say we have been sounding the alarm about Dem [Democrat] vulnerabilities w/Latinos for a long, long time,” she said on Twitter. “There is a strategy and a path but the necessary effort simply has not been put in.”
She promised to entice Latino people to support the Democratic Party at the next general election.
“We have work to do,” she said on Twitter.
Ocasio-Cortez previously urged her 7.6 million social media followers to stop buying Goya Food products and make Adobo sauce at home. Her reaction came after the company’s chief refused to apologize for speaking highly of the president at a White House roundtable with Latino leaders on July 9.
The attempted boycott ultimately backfired with a growing chorus for a counter ‘buy-cott’ where people buy Goya products to show their support. The president and his daughter, White House Senior Adviser Ivanka Trump, showed their support for the manufacturer by sharing photos of themselves with Goya products on social media.
A charity drive on the GoFundMe website has already attracted more than $320,800 in donations to buy Goya products and give them to food banks for distribution to the needy.
