DNC Chair Tom Perez: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 'the Future of Our Party'

The Alexandria Ocasio Cortez campaign office

He shared the image because he felt the house showed a far different from the struggle-filled childhood in the Bronx Ocasio-Cortez claims to have had, but believe it or not the tweet didn't wind up working in his favor.

"I have heard some Republicans deride Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and I think that's a mistake", O'Reilly tweeted this week. In fact, her campaign website clearly mentions that she moved to Yorktown Heights from the Bronx when she was five in order for her to receive a better education.

Despite all this information, readily available online, Cardillo tweeted, "This is the Yorktown Heights (very nice area) home Ocasio-Cortez grew up in before going off to Ivy League Brown University".

Speaking on Sunday, Ocasio-Cortez said while she believes her success can be mirrored in other districts, there is room in the party for candidates less left-wing than herself.

"Hey John", she wrote.

"Here's my 1st pair of campaign shoes", Ocasio-Cortez explained in her post.

Shortly after, Cardillo responded to Ocasio-Cortez's comments, acknowledging that he had made a mistake when he said she attended Brown.

As well as Ocasio's victory being a wake-up call for establishment Democrats, it also marked a hard moment for conservatives, who could now expect to face an outsider candidate in what will surely be a heated congressional race.

Attempts to reach Ocasio-Cortez were unsuccessful. It's fun - we promise.

After getting a degree in Economics and International Relations at Boston University, she returned to the Bronx and began to work in community organizing, according to her bio. "She won by outworking long-time Democratic Congressman Joseph Crowley and seems to care more about people than power".

"I don't think you can go too far to the left and still win the Midwest", Duckworth said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Cardillo is still tweeting about Ocasio-Cortez a day later. It was clear to her, even then, that the zip code a child was born in determined much of their destiny. Growing up, it was a good town for working people.
