The article came just days after Democrat socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez upset incumbent Representative Joe Crowley in the race for New York's 14th District.

"There are a lot of districts in this country that are like NY 14", Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press".

Except Ocasio-Cortez isn't quite the blue-collar champion she's branding herself as.

Ocasio-Cortez responded to a tweet from Resnick, confirming the figure and adding that she faced another 600 unread text messages, some apparently including requests for interviews, on her personal phone.

Since Ocasio-Cortez's win, Kerri Harris, who is running for Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) 2016 presidential campaign, have won primaries for federal-level legislative seats, and the group has propelled dozens of candidates to victories at the state level this year.

The 28-year-old shared a photo of the worn-out shoes that she'd worn on the campaign trail - a pair of & Other Stories zip-up sneakers - which were discolored and cracked at the soles. "She pounded the pavement and she was out there talking to every one of her constituents, and I think that was the difference".

Cardillo is still tweeting about Ocasio-Cortez a day later.

Ocasio-Cortez's response seemed to resonate with people on Twitter.

Ocasio-Cortez has drawn particular attention for her embrace of democratic socialism, which she said means to her that "in a modern, moral and wealthy society, no American should be too poor to live". Breitbart's Josh Caplan is out with a "fact check" on the Democratic Socialist's background - only to find she grew up in one of the richest counties in the United States.

Cardillo is staring right at the essence of Ocasio-Cortez's message, but he still can't see it. "It is nice. Growing up, it was a good town for working people". My mom scrubbed toilets so I could live here & I grew up seeing how the zip code one is born in determines much of their opportunity.

After getting a degree in Economics and International Relations at Boston University, she returned to the Bronx and began to work in community organizing, according to her bio.

Naturally, a lot of institutionalists are pretty scared of her and they're trying out all the tactics they can think of to tear her down.
