Could Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez be New York’s next mayor?

“I hear her name for mayor and US Senate,” one Democratic club leader told me. “Of course, I’d consider supporting her.” The Senate seat in question may be that of Chuck Schumer, who will be 71 when he runs for a fifth term in 2022.

Ocasio-Cortez drew praise for her questioning of Michael Cohen this past week, and she jumped to the front of the progressive pack on Capitol Hill with her sweeping Green New Deal proposals.

“We’ve had 109 mayors, and none has been a woman,” another Dem told me. “It’s time to break that glass ceiling.”
