A radical leftist backed by socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) won her primary for Queens District Attorney in New York City Tuesday night.

Tiffany Cabán, who describes herself as a “queer Latina” and “Queens native,” edged out Melinda Katz, widely regarded as the “establishment” candidate, according to The New York Post. 

“Cabán, endorsed by fellow progressives like Bronx-Queens Rep. Alexandria ­Ocasio-Cortez and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, got 39.6 percent of the vote to Katz’s 38.3 percent, with 99 percent of precincts reporting,” The Post said.

“We have built the most powerful, the most diverse, the most beautiful coalition that a borough-wide race has ever seen. From formerly incarcerated folks to sex workers to undocumented immigrants to community-based organizations & activists to local & national elected officials,” she said.

She is also expected to bring her radical leftism to work as Queens District Attorney.

“We built a campaign to reduce recidivism. Decriminalize poverty. End mass incarceration. To protect our immigrant communities. Keep people rooted in their communities with the access to support and services,” she said.

Lowering expectations for herself, she noted later that “Transforming this system will not be easy, and it will not happen overnight.”

Ocasio-Cortez celebrated the victory on Twitter.

“We meet a machine with a movement,” she said when the election results were announced.

All of New York City, including Queens, is dominated by Democrats. It is all but certain that Cabán will win in her general election.
