Ocasio-Cortez, the rising progressive star, has been documenting much of her first few weeks in Washington, D.C., on her personal Snapchat, offering followers a glimpse into her experience as an incoming freshman congresswoman.

“We are here at our new office and I just realized it is two doors down from Nancy Pelosi,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a Snapchat post on Friday, panning the camera down the hall to show the proximity of the two offices. 

The incoming House members selected their new offices Friday after holding a biennial office lottery.


The office Ocasio-Cortez recorded appears to be Pelosi’s district office. Pelosi would inhabit the House Speaker’s office should she be chosen by Democrats in January.

Ocasio-Cortez said earlier this month that she would support the California Democrat's bid for the Speaker's gavel.

Her endorsement came after she joined a group of protesters in Pelosi’s office demanding congressional action on climate change. The sit-in came days after she won her election in New York's 14th Congressional District.
