Ms Ocasio-Cortez has also told her Twitter followers that Republicans are looking for ways to trip her up.

"The people who vote for her do it because they are young (and idealistic), struggling to make a living (as she is), and desperately need the pipe dreams she's offering", said Woods, who comments frequently on Twitter about politics.

One thing is clear early on in Ocasio-Cortez's career: She's not your average Democrat.

Though critics have pointed out that most of the organization's candidates ended up losing their races, Ocasio-Cortez said Justice Democrats candidates, along with those backed by Our Revolution and other groups, "built so much progressive power in their districts that they really brought their districts to the cusp for 2020" regardless of the outcome.
