Washington, D.C. – Voto Latino President and CEO María Teresa Kumar issued the following congratulatory statement in response to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s NY-14 primary victory:

“Voto Latino congratulates Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in her hard fought primary victory. Alexandria has been a member of the Voto Latino family since she attended our Power Summit leadership conference in New York City. We witnessed her passion, drive, and wit very early on, and to see the fulfillment of her potential has been amazing. In the last days of her heated campaign race, Alexandria dropped everything and joined us in Tornillo, Texas to demand the immediate reunification of families. Today we congratulate Alexandria, and tomorrow we’ll continue our work to empower our nation’s next young leaders.”
