MoveOn statement on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s win in NY-14

Statement from Matt Blizek, elections mobilization director for MoveOn:

Tonight’s victory by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a beacon of hope for all who are alarmed at the injustice and oppression of the Trump administration, and who envision a brighter future in which everyone in this country is treated with respect and dignity and set up to thrive.

These results are also a shot across the bow of the Democratic establishment in Washington: a young, diverse, and boldly progressive Resistance Movement isn’t waiting to be anointed by the powers that be. Americans from all walks of life who demand change are taking reins of power and showing the Democratic Party what its future looks like.
