#N12BX: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Posted: Updated:

Monday's Democratic primary could cause a major shakeup in New York.

Bronx native Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won the primary election for the 14th Congressional District, which represents part of the Bronx and Queens.

She topped 10-term Rep. Joe Crowley.

Ocasio-Cortez was the first to challenge Crowley in 14 years. This was her first campaign.

Many people believed Crowley could be the next speaker of the House.

Ocasio-Cortez supports Medicare for everyone and abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

If elected in November, the 28-year-old would be the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.
