YONKERS, NY – Today, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez endorsed Congressman Jamaal Bowman for re-election in New York’s 16th Congressional District. Today’s endorsement from Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is yet another sign of the growing enthusiasm and support behind Congressman Bowman’s re-election campaign.

Ocasio-Cortez represents NY-14, which neighbors NY-16, and in the recent redistricting, gained regions that previously fell within NY-16, including Eastchester and Co-Op City.

"I am beyond excited to endorse my brother in service, Congressman Jamaal Bowman for re-election in NY-16. Last week, SCOTUS made it clear that gun rights are far more important than the rights of women and human lives. At a time like this, we need representatives in Congress who understand that our system is rigged for a select few and who are willing to fight to completely transform our structures. For New Yorkers in NY-16, that leader is Congressman Jamaal Bowman. I am proud to call him my colleague in Congress and look forward to continuing to work with him for many years to come,” said Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez.

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement of Jamaal Bowman during his insurgent 2020 primary campaign proved to be a turning point in the race. In the year and a half since Bowman took office, he and Ocasio-Cortez have taken their fight for the people of their two districts, a Green New Deal, and Medicare for All to Washington.

“I’m excited to once again be endorsed by one of the most important Democratic leaders of our time — Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” said Congressman Jamaal Bowman. “From her community organizing to her historic 2018 victory, AOC has been fighting relentlessly in Washington DC for working people and historically marginalized communities. Her brilliance, work ethic, and undeniable love for humanity continues to inspire me and millions across the country. I look forward to continuing to fight by her side both in the Bronx and in Washington.”

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement adds to the long list of endorsements Rep. Bowman has received for his re-election campaign including from powerhouses like: the Working Families Party, Communications Workers of America, The Jewish Vote, the Sunrise Movement, Community Voices Heard Power, Make the Road, NARAL, Brady PAC, the Council of School Supervisors & Administrators (CSA), NYPAN, NYIC, 1199 SEIU, AFSCME District Council 37, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, and the Arab American Democratic Action Fund.

As well as Senator Elizabeth Warren, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, NY Senators Schumer and Gillibrand, and Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley. As well as Attorney General Keith Ellison and Democratic nominee for Texas’ 35th Congressional District Greg Casar.
