.@aidachavez was one of a few journalists that picked up our race before the primary.

Establishment power can also include power to silence - we learned afterwards how much active pressure there was (angry calls, etc) to *not* cover my candidacy.

She was one of the few who did.

Other early outlets included:
- online progressive outlets (ex. @TYT)
- local outlets (ex. @WNYC, @villagevoice)
- nonprofit outlets (ex. @theintercept)
- WOMEN’S outlets (ex. @Refinery29, & the day or two before, @voguemagazine digital)

Also LATINX outlets like @REMEZCLA did digital as well
