"Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is apparently so popular that she won a primary in a New York congressional district she wasn’t even intending to compete in.

Ocasio-Cortez, the newly minted Democratic nominee for New York’s 14th Congressional District, won a Reform Party write-in primary in the 15th Congressional District next door in the Bronx. Her (second) surprise win was first reported by the New York Daily News’ Kenneth Lovett.

Last month Ocasio-Cortez made waves in the Democratic Party by beating her primary opponent, the House Democratic Caucus chair, Rep. Joe Crowley. He’s a longtime member of Congress and Queens party boss who was being talked about as a future House speaker. Ocasio-Cortez is a 28-year-old Latina and Democratic socialist, whose win has galvanized progressives around the nation.

Granted, her latest primary victory in the 15th Congressional District was small and resulted from just nine write-in votes, the most out of any of the other 22 write-in candidates. Rep. José Serrano, a Democrat and a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, is the district’s incumbent.

The New York City Board of Elections certified the latest result, but Ocasio-Cortez has made it clear she won’t actually be challenging Serrano or running for elections in two different districts."
