representing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gets the full rock star treatment from a group of civic-minded kids in DC … which the congresswoman sees as a great sign for America’s future.
We caught AOC Thursday on Capitol Hill as she was bombarded by would-be voters on a class trip, and the love for her was written on some of their faces. Some of them were even in tears over what they clearly saw as a once-in-a-lifetime moment.
While adults tend to be quite jaded by politicians… AOC made no secret of their excitement for this scene with the kids. According to her, the future looks bright if young people engage in the political process.
You have to imagine she sees herself in them a bit — Rep. Ocasio-Cortez started at a fairly young age, taking office at 29, which made her the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.
As we reported, the U.S. Representative is also excited about the news she shared last month – that she is engaged at Riley Robert.
She confirmed the buzz – which started when she wore a ring on THIS finger – by tweeting, “It’s true. Thank you all for your well wishes.”
Our sincere thanks to
