Erin Swauger ’19 and Annie Noel ’21 were quoted in the Globe, alongside rising political stars Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who defeated a longtime incumbent in the Democratic primary for New York’s 14th Congressional District, and Ayanna Pressley, a Boston city councilor who defeated 10-term Democratic Congressman Michael Capuano in the Massachusetts 7th primary; as well as Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon.
