The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union joined the growing list of endorsers praising Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after her upset party primary win over Rep. Joe Crowley in the 14th congressional district.

“The RWDSU congratulates Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on her primary win and we are pleased to announce our support for her campaign in the general election today,” said RWDSU President Stuart Appelbaum.

“The voters of the 14th Congressional District sent a powerful message on Tuesday, and we respect it. Democrats win when we speak loudly to our shared values – economic justice for all, the rights of working people and marginalized communities, and the rights of immigrants – those whose voices have been trampled on by the Trump administration. That is the way to energize and activate voters – Alexandria did that, and her passion is our future. We know Alexandria is a candidate who will fight for working people and our union is pleased to announce our support for her campaign today.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s win has thrust her into the national spotlight, but the New York political world is also lining up behind her. The Working Families Party, which endorsed Crowley initialy, gave her its endorsement on Tuesday night after her victory, while Gov. Andrew Cuomo singled her out for praise in an email to supporters.
