Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York, reportedly filed for re-election on Thursday, barely over two months after winning her previous race.
According to freshly filed Federal Election Commission paperwork, Ocasio-Cortez will compete for re-election in New York’s highly Democratic 14th Congressional District, which she has previously won by significant percentages.
In November, she easily defeated Republican Tina Forte by a score of 70.6% to 27.5%.
Ocasio-Cortez became a congresswoman in 2018 following her upset defeat of Democratic incumbent Joseph Crowley in the district’s Democratic primary. She went on to win the district’s general election in 2018.
Cortez has remained one of the most outspoken and far-left members of the House, repeatedly criticizing fellow Democrats for being insufficiently radical on a host of different issues.
During an appearance on the podcast ‘Pod Save America’ in October 2022, Ocasio-Cortez chastised Biden for not include illegal immigrants in his pardon for individuals federally convicted of simple marijuana possession.
