Ocasio-Cortez Wins Another Election That She Didn't Even Run In

July 11, 2018 - 11:37 am

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- Not only has Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez done what many thought was impossible -- defeating Congressman Joe Crowley in Queens -- she's also managed to win another election that she wasn't even running in.

The 28-year-old is the winner of the Reform Party primary in the neighboring 15th Congressional District, the Daily News reported. She beat Congressman Jose Serrano, who wasn't running on that line either.

They were both write-in candidates.

There were a total of 22 write-in votes.

Ocasio-Cortez can't accept both wins.

She tweeted that she'll turn down the Reform Party line in the Bronx.

Ocasio-Cortez upset the 10-term incumbent, Crowley, in the Democratic primary in the 14th District last month.
