At a glance, numerous Justice Democrats have tougher primaries than Ocasio-Cortez. In just six days since Ocasio-Cortez's victory, Harris has netted more than $15,000 from 429 donors from 41 states and the District of Columbia - nearly as much as she had raised since the start of her campaign.
The Justice Democrats have seen their fundraising double since Ocasio-Cortez's victory, but much of the momentum behind the drive to elect progressives pre-dates her June 26 primary.
Ocasio-Cortez lived in Westchester County until she left for college. "Calls herself a democratic socialist, actually, like Bernie Sanders did, she was a Bernie Sanders reporter", Press said. Here is everything you need to know about the inspiring candidate, who was working as a bartender up until previous year.

The Idaho Statesman newspaper said the apartment complex catered to low-income families and was run by a Boise nonprofit. The attack is the largest stabbing in Boise history, he said. "We must come together to condemn this vile act".
"She did the hard work", Duckworth said on CNN. "From that point on, I wouldn't talk to her". That house with the leafy yard Cardillo tweeted out? According to Corbin Trent, a Justice Democrats co-founder who spent seven weeks working full-time for Ocasio-Cortez, this was the dream all along - one breakthrough candidate who demonstrates that incumbents are beatable.
In the days following her victory, Ocasio-Cortez's upbringing in Yorktown Heights became a target for many critics, who said it ran contradictory to her claim of being "a girl from the Bronx", a phrase she used on Colbert's show.
Ocasio-Cortez has drawn particular attention for her embrace of democratic socialism, which she said means to her that "in a modern, moral and wealthy society, no American should be too poor to live".
"Thank you, @glennbeck. We may disagree, but I sincerely appreciate the good faith", she tweeted. Responding to a critic on Twitter who insinuated that Yorktown Heights is nicer than the Bronx, Ocasio-Cortez said: "It is nice". "It was clear to her, even then, that the zip code a child was born in determined much of their destiny". "Your attempt to strip me of my family, my story, my home, and my identity is exemplary of how scared you are of the power of all four of those things", she wrote.
