Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is apparently so popular in New York that she has won another primary.

But the New York Democratic Socialist did not even run in the district.

The 28-year-old is riding a wave of liberal popularity after surprisingly defeating long-term Democratic incumbent Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th district last month. And now, in the neighboring 15th congressional district, Ocasio-Cortez has won as a write-in candidate for the Reform Party, according to the Daily News.

Ocasio-Cortez beat out Bronx Rep. Jose Serrano for the spot which she announced she would have to decline.

About 38 Reform Party members and 55,000 independents were able to vote on June 26 in write-in primaries in multiple districts, according to City & State New York.

Twenty-two people received write-in votes, and Ocasio-Cortez won with nine, according to the Daily News. The city’s Board of Elections certified her write-in victory but the state election law does not allow candidates to run in multiple elections at the same time.

Ocasio-Cortez will stick with the 14th district where she ran and won and will be will facing off against Republican Anthony Pappas in the fall.
