"I think there is a real hunger for change on the ground level", Ms. Katz said.

Struggling for words, the politician who won nearly 60 per cent of the vote, said: "I can not believe these numbers right now, but I do know that every person here worked there butt off to change the future of the Bronx and Queens".

Ocasio-Cortez got her first taste of professional politics while working for the late Senator Ted Kennedy on immigration casework and foreign affairs. Her long-shot effort had drawn national interest from Democrats looking to move their party away from the establishment path represented by Hillary Clinton's failed presidential campaign and toward policies, including Medicare for all, championed by Sanders. Speaking as to why Crowley lost nonetheless, Christina Greer, an associate professor of political science at Fordham University and a McSilver Fellow at New York University, said that Crowley had likely overestimated his support in the district.
