It was not surprise, but Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has endorsed Congressman Jamaal Bowman for re-election in New York’s 16th Congressional District.
“I am beyond excited to endorse my brother in service, Congressman Jamaal Bowman for re-election in NY-16. Last week, SCOTUS made it clear that gun rights are far more important than the rights of women and human lives. At a time like this, we need representatives in Congress who understand that our system is rigged for a select few and who are willing to fight to completely transform our structures. For New Yorkers in NY-16, that leader is Congressman Jamaal Bowman. I am proud to call him my colleague in Congress and look forward to continuing to work with him for many years to come,” said Congresswoman #AlexandriaOcasioCortez.
Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio Cortez’s endorsement of Jamaal Bowman during his insurgent 2020 primary campaign proved to be a turning point in the race against Eliot Engel.
Efforts to reach Congressman Bowman's campaign for comment were unsuccessful.
