Tiffany Cabán Declares Victory In Queens District Attorney Primary Race
The 31-year-old former public defender ran her campaign on going “against the machine” — refusing to take corporate money and seeking to transform criminal justice from a punitive system to a restorative one. Originally seen as a dark horse in the race, Cabán reached a pivotal moment when she gained the endorsement of freshman congresswoman and fellow New Yorker
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. (Joe Crowley, the former congressman who lost to AOC last year, has been
raising money for Katz.) Cabán has since also earned endorsements from senators
Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, who are both running for president, the progressive former gubernatorial candidate
Cynthia Nixon, and the most establishment publication of them all — 
The New York Times.
