Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez scores victory in New York election she didn't run in

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won again.

The 28-year-old Democratic congressional candidate shocked the political world when she bested longtime Rep. Joseph Crowley in New York’s primary election last month.

But Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, apparently also won the Reform Party nomination in New York’s 15th congressional district as a write-in candidate even though she didn't run, the New York Daily News reported.

The Reform Party held write-in primaries in multiple districts for the June 26 primary, according to City & State New York. For the 15th district, about 38 Reform Party members and 55,000 independents were able to vote in that election.

The party launched the write-in campaign to highlight problems it sees with New York’s election laws, City & State reported.

“Part of my hope, quite frankly, is that people will see what a needless expense this is, and we will call upon their state legislators to fix this right away,” Reform Party spokesman Frank Morano said.

According to the Daily News, 22 people received write-in votes, and Ocasio-Cortez won with nine.

State election law does bar candidates from running in multiple elections simultaneously, the Daily News reported, although the city’s Board of Elections did certify her write-in victory.

Ocasio-Cortez addressed the victory on Twitter, saying, “While I am honored that so many Bronxites are excited about our campaign, I will remain the [Democratic] nominee for NY-14.”

Rep. Jose Serrano, a Democrat, is the current representative for the 15th congressional district, which encompasses part of the Bronx, and is expected to win re-election in the fall.

Ocasio-Cortez, who has excited many progressive Democrats nationwide, will face Republican Anthony Pappas in the fall.
