Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wins Primary That She Didn't Even Enter

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. Twenty-eight-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stunned the political world recently. She beat out a well-known incumbent in the New York primary race. Now the New York Daily News reports that she has won another race in a district she wasn't even running in. How'd that happen? Well, people in that neighboring district wrote her name onto the ballot. Ocasio-Cortez said thanks on Twitter, but she will stick to running in her own district. It's MORNING EDITION.
