A Democratic activist from Queens has announced she’ll challenge Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a primary for her congressional seat.
Badrun Khan, who officially filed her candidacy in July, announced her campaign on Wednesday, according to The Hill.
When asked about the new challenger, Ocasio-Cortez told the site,“I just focus on delivering for my district and doing the best job. I try not to focus too much on other folks in the field.”
Khan, who is from New York, was raised by Bengali-born parents and is “heavily involved in her Bengali Community throughout the city,” according to her campaign site.
She graduated college from Marymount Manhattan College, and for the last seven years has worked as a financial officer in education.
