Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said fellow progressives’ and her own election victorywas equal to the 1969 moon landing and the 1964 Civil Rights Act. HUH?!
“We went to the moon. We electrified the nation. We established civil rights. We enfranchised the country. We dig deep, and we did it. We did it when no one else thought that we could. That's what we did when so many of us won an election this year,”
Ocasio-Cortez’s claim that their election victory is on par with the historical moments in American history appears to be exaggerated. 16,000 people voted for the Democratic Socialist, out of total 27,744 ballots, despite the district having hundreds of thousands of registered Democrats.
Watch for yourself
