Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez launched her re-election campaign Saturday in both the Bronx and Queens. She also opened her new offices in both boroughs.
"This entire space is designed with community in mind, with education in mind, and coming together in mind," she said outside her new Westchester Square office.
She says it's a place to fight for issues like tenants' right, health care, protection of the disabled, homelessness and more.

Ocasio-Cortez wants it to be an organizing base, which she adds, goes beyond re-election.
"I am not interested in just showing up every two years to ask our community for your vote. I am interested in making deep investments in the Bronx and in Queens," said the congresswoman.
