AOC wins primary, beating Wall Street-backed Michelle Caruso-Cabrera - Business Insider

New York Primary Election Results: 14th Congressional District - The New York Times

Eliza Relman said:
The final numbers from Tuesday's primary won't be known for at least several days, given this year's large number of absentee ballots. But, thus far, Ocasio-Cortez won nearly 73% of the vote, according to Decision Desk HQ.
New York Times said:
This is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s first re-election campaign, and she drew a well-financed challenger in Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, a former CNBC anchor. A.O.C. took the challenge seriously enough that she paid for a late attack ad calling her opponent a former Republican.
Man, I knew AOC would win, even decisively, but I had no idea she'd crush by this much, especially relative to such a well-funded establishment opponent; her future in politics and the Congress is clearly assured.

It made Trump's day to know one of his fav four is getting closer to being elected unlike himself.

She'll probably be in that seat for the rest of her life, unless she's ambitious.

I won a bet on that. I've bet that all 4 of the "squad" (or whatever they are called) will be re-elected.

So you're finally seeing what the majority of Americans have been trying to tell you. Democrats will win back the senate, increase their hold in the house, and send Dirtbag Donnie packing.

lmao I remember a few people on this board questioning her district support on numerous occasions. Glad we've got that sad talking point cleared up.

She's in that seat and won in a blow out precisely because she is ambitious.

I remember when some of the citizens of Trump Fan Nation declared her candidacy over when that Amazon thing happened.

Guess they were wrong.
