Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez confused millions of Americans this week when she claimed she represents more people that Senator Joe Manchin.
“The idea that Joe Manchin says he can’t explain this back home to his people is a farce … I represent just as many or more people than Joe Manchin does,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
“What we really need to do is crack down on the Senate, which operates like an old boys’ club that has a couple of gals in it,” she added.
According to the 2019 Census, New York’s 14th Congressional District -represented by Ocasio-Cortez- has a population of 696,664 people. West Virginia has a population of 1.8 million
