Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC Congresswoman for NY-14 (the Bronx & Queens). In a modern, moral, and wealthy society, no American should be too poor to live. 💯% People-Funded, no lobbyist💰. May. 30, 2019 1 min read

.@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

You can follow @AOC.
