NEW YORK, NY - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the powerhouse insurgent who unseated the 20-year incumbent Joe Crowley in Congressional District 14, announced her endorsement of Zephyr Teachout for Attorney General of the State of New York today in a press conference on July 12, 2018, at the Charging Bull statue in lower Manhattan.
“Zephyr Teachout showed long before the success of our campaign an unprecedented willingness to stand up to the powerful forces of big money in New York politics. That spirit of independence and strength of will is exactly what we need in an attorney general. Zephyr is the only candidate in this race rejecting corporate money, and for that I commend her and fully endorse her candidacy,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
“Alexandria ran a gutsy, grassroots campaign about getting big money out of our politics and lifting up the voices of people left behind. I was so proud to endorse her when it was just the two of us at a flower shop in Queens, and just as proud to have her support now that the world has woken up to the power of fearless women," said Zephyr Teachout.
