AOC, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, Deb Haaland, Veronica Escobar, Sharice Davids - Vanity Fair



Love it - they all have some attitude. "We did not come to play."

the NEW WAVE

Freshman Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, Deb Haaland, Veronica Escobar, and Sharice Davids have sought to project one message since setting foot in Washington: “We did not come to play.” All six women, along with dozens of others, represent the new face of the Democratic Party—young, nonwhite, L.G.B.T.Q., disproportionately female. In the few months since they’ve overtaken the Hill, they have indeed proved that “playing” is not on their agenda. Ocasio-Cortez and Omar have earned the support of veteran lawmakers in their push to make climate change a priority when Congress reconvenes this month—a movement that gained notoriety in large part thanks to the former’s barnstorming of Nancy Pelosi’s office. With midterms fast receding, the real test lies in the months to come. “There’s so many people that know that we’re going into the lion’s den,” Ocasio-Cortez said in November, “even within the party.”
