GRACE: Youngest Person Elected To Congress Passes Baton To Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was elected to Congress Tuesday night, which came as no surprise to anyone since she was running in a reliably Democrat district.

This makes Ocasio-Cortez, who turned 29 last month, the youngest person ever elected to Congress. In a show of reaching across the aisle and grace, Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) congratulated Ocasio-Cortez on this distinction. Stefanik was previously the youngest person ever elected, as she was 30 when she won her first campaign in 2014.

In a tweet sent early Wednesday morning, Stefanik congratulated Ocasio-Cortez and said she would “proudly hand off that mantle to” the young Congresswoman-elect. “Work hard to encourage the next generation of women who follow!” Stefanik added.

Stefanik referenced former Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman, a Democrat who was 31 at the time she was elected to the House of Representatives in 1972. Holtzman held that distinction for 42 years until Stefanik was elected. Now Stefanik was able to only hold the distinction for four years.

Holtzman was also from New York, meaning the Empire State has sent the three youngest women to Congress in the past half century.

    You don’t have the right to judge her according to her logic on why she doesn’t have to answer questions about her pure bullshit “ideas”.

    That poor child doesn’t have the common sense and education of a 1st grader. If she did, she’d realize how absolutely ignorant she comes across, and try to straighten up her act. She doesn’t realize that they didn’t put her in there because she was smart and would do a good job. The Dem’s threw her in there so they’d have another brainwashed idiot to put the strings on and do their bidding. She’s nothing more than a pawn in their game, and when they’re done with her, they’ll figure out a way to throw her under the bus.
