AOC’s Muslim Bartender Buddy Runs For Congress In New York
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s buddy and former campaign staffer, who is a 27-year-old bartender, is running for Congress in New York.
According to Cowdhury’s website, “He was inspired by the progressive wave of grassroots activism following the 2016 election and became a staffer on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional campaign. As one of her lead organizers, he knocked on thousands of doors, listening and learning about the most pressing hardships in the lives of Queens and Bronx residents. Shan also served as Ocasio-Cortez’s deputy policy director, where he worked on research for the Green New Deal and other progressive legislative proposals.”
Chowdhury wants to Abolish ICE and prisons. He supports reparations, LGBTQIA, abortion, Medicare for all, tuition free college and debt cancelation.
Chowdhury, a muslim born in Queens to Bangladeshi parents, claims that he is “more American than Trump could ever be.”
According to Ballotpedia no Republican candidates have filed to run for this seat.
