    Ocasio-Cortez's Mom Says She Wants To Be President

    From The Hill

    Aris Folley of The Hill wrote:The mother of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that the 28-year-old democratic socialist aspires to eventually sit in the Oval Office.

    "Her aspiration is to be the president," Blanca Ocasio-Cortez told the New York Post in a report published Thursday.

    "She has been thinking about politics since she was a teenager. She would read historical and political books old and new," her mother said. "She would engage in political discussions passionately."

    The 55-year-old mom and school secretary told the local publication she spent several days helping her daughter campaign against 10-term incumbent Rep. Joseph Crowley (D) for New York's 14th District congressional seat.

    It was like "fighting Goliath," Blanca Ocasio-Cortez said of the race just days after the shocking upset.


    "She is fighting for our community. She is fighting for the working class. She is fighting for immigrants," Blanca Ocasio-Cortez said, adding her daughter knows firsthand what its like to experience financial hardships in her family, which she says helps more voters relate to her.

    "We can relate to that," her mother added. "We are working class. We did struggle. We know what struggle means."

    Ocasio-Cortez shocked the political by unseating Crowley in the Democratic primary.

    The former organizer for Sen. Bernie Sanders's (I-Vt.) presidential campaign was given little chance to topple Crowley, who is the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, but picked up steam after a campaign video went viral last month.

    The newly-minted Democratic nominee will face Republican Anthony Pappas in the general election in November.

    This young lady is gonna go far.  I actually see her not only winning this congressional seat, but becoming President of the United States someday.  It can happen.  Just like one day, changing our reputation back to being the United States of America can happen too.

    Just saying.

    Pretty amazing what she's achieved at such a young age - especially considering Crowley outspent her by a factor of 10 to 1 in this race.

    Good luck to her with her future career Smile !
