FOX's Chad Pergram tells us about the New York Congresswoman who gets a lot of attention these days in "The Speaker's Lobby."

I'm Chad Pergram with the Speaker's Lobby.

Freshman Democratic New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the most recognizable figures in politics.

She shocked the political world last year, upsetting longtime New York Democrat Joe Crowley in the primary.

Crowley had an inside track to become House Speaker or Democratic Leader.

Today, people know more about Ocasio-Cortez than anyone ever knew about Crowley despite his two decades in Congress.

It's too early to assess Ocasio-Cortez's staying power.

Is she a game changer? Ask in a few years.

America's political coastline is flecked with the jetsam of flashes-in-the-pan, one-hit-wonders, and sundry political flameouts.

And while Ocasio-Cortez is the star now, there is one certainty in politics offered up by the Eagles in their song "New Kid in Town"
