Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Youngest Woman to Serve in Congress
29-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is set to be the youngest woman to serve in Congress in the history of the United States, after she defeated incumbent Congressman, Democratic Caucus Chair Joe Crowley. The New York Representative, who calls herself a Democratic Socialist, has already become one of the most talked about politicians after the middterm polls.
