Elizabeth Holtzman appeared on NY1 News, discussing the parallels between Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s victory in the 2018 Democratic primary to her own victory in the 1970s. Holtzman was the youngest woman ever elected to the House when she was 31, and now, Ocasio-Cortez is positioned to become the youngest woman elected to Congress. Holtzman said, “she's a woman, she's got a new kind of energy. That's great. She's got to prove herself. That's what I did my first year."
