Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or better known as AOC, is becoming a household word. In her first term as a member of Congress from New York’s 14 Congressional District, she has made headlines with her opinions on many controversial matters. She shares Progressive views with other politicians like Senator Bernie Sanders. AOC challenges the status quo of the Democratic Party and probably scares most Republicans. When compared with “Nervous” Nancy Pelosi, one might come to the conclusion that she is better prepared to lead the Democrats and Congress alike.
Should the Democrats hang on to the majority in the House of Representatives, AOC might be a viable option to Speaker Pelosi. Of course, there have already been people suggesting that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez run for President in 2024. She will turn 35 before that election, so it is possible that she would be eligible to seek her parties nomination.
