Democratic Party candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took New York's 14th district to become the youngest woman elected to Congress in United States history.
       
According to all the electoral projections of U.S. media, 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez swept a percentage of support higher than 76% against Anthony Pappas, the Republican candidate of the same district.
       
Out of the all the districts on the list, 11 have voted blue (Democrat), just like the 13th district that fell into the hands of another Latino, Adriano Espaillat.
       
Ocasio-Cortez, who said it was "surreal" to see her name on a ballot for the House of Representatives, showed her gratitude on Tuesday to voters in supporting her.
       
"It's something very special, it's a very exciting moment for me and for my mom. I was born in this neighborhood and voting and having my name in this role is incredible. There are no words," declared the Democratic candidate of Puerto Rican origin who just turned 29 last month.
