Last night's primaries in New York showed us just how much people are craving young, progressive energy, even in blue states.
In NY-14, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeated 19-year incumbent and Congressional powerhouse Rep. Joe Crowley. We didn’t make the ad below, but from our work in the Bronx we knew that it would be perfect for AOC’s electorate. It’s incredible to see genuine progressives win, even when they’re not your clients.
In NY-12, Suraj Patel, a young millennial progressive, got 41 percent of the vote against 25-year incumbent Carolyn Maloney – a strong showing for someone who started with no name recognition in the bluest district in the country. Activate Media was proud to produce campaign media for Suraj's campaign and continues to tell the stories of exciting candidates.
