Portrait Of: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez became a national sensation after she won the Democratic primary in New York's 14th congressional district. Ocasio-Cortez, born in the Bronx and of Puerto Rican descent, beat Rep. Joe Crowley, who some have referred to as "one of the most powerful Democrats in the House." Ocasio-Cortez is a self-described socialist, and has made campaign promises some see as radical, such as abolishing ICE and supporting Medicare for All. In this personal interview with Latino USA, we get to know the young Latina candidate who is changing the face of the Democratic Party.

Intercept Podcast Special: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Today we’re presenting a podcast special from our Intercept colleagues in DC. New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joins Intercept reporters Ryan Grim and Briahna Joy Gray for an in-depth conversation about her fresh approach to politics, her thoughts on 2020, and her insurgent congressional campaign. As a new member of the House Financial Services Committee, she’s already shaping the conversation with her call to raise the top marginal tax rate to 70%. And former North Carolina congressman Brad Miller, a progressive Democrat who served for years on the committee, joins the conversation to talk about the challenges Ocasio-Cortez will face there.
