While Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez instantly became a young Democrat icon after running to the left of powerful incumbent Congressman Joseph Crowley and winning, the democratic socialist candidate is quickly turning into a style icon as well.

While New York Board of Elections has not yet released its demographic data, researchers at City University of New York found Ocasio-Cortez's strongest turnout was in gentrifying areas of Queens, a trend found in other congressional primaries in the city.

Ocasio-Cortez's campaign website says that she was "born in the Bronx to two working-class parents" but because of the state of Bronx public schools she ended up going to school 40 minutes away, in Yorktown.

For her part, Ocasio-Cortez has the absolute flawless response to these claims, saying, "Working-class Americans want a clear champion and there is nothing radical about moral clarity in 2018".

While the picture of the Yorktown Heights home is indeed the one Ocasio-Cortez grew up in, Cardillo incorrectly stated that she went to Brown University. "Calls herself a democratic socialist, actually, like Bernie Sanders did, she was a Bernie Sanders reporter", Press said.

New York's 14th Congressional District is one of the most Democratic in the country, but Ocasio-Cortez's victory directly challenges the established party's encrusted ways, which favor candidates who can raise big money.

Alvarado said he attended social demonstrations, political events and went door-to-door with Ocasio-Cortez, as she met voters in her district. "It is nice. Growing up, it was a good town for working people".

He would not directly answer a question from CNN's Chris Cuomo about whether her win marked a shift in the Democratic party last week.

"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", she tweeted.

Cardillo is staring right at the essence of Ocasio-Cortez's message, but he still can't see it.

A few days after Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., commented on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's upset victory, other established figures in the party voiced concerns that what worked locally may not translate as well nationally.

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.
