When Is AOC’s Term Up

The answer to this question is not as straightforward as you might think. According to the Constitution, members of the House of Representatives serve two-year terms.

So, in theory, AOC’s term should be up in 2022. However, there is a catch. Article I, Section II of the Constitution states that “the House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several States.”

This means that although AOC’s term technically expires in 2022, she can run for re-election up until 2030. Of course, we don’t yet know the results of the upcoming primary in August.

How Long Is AOC In Office For

The answer is, that it depends. If she chooses to run for re-election and wins, her term will be extended. However, if she loses or decides not to run after the latest election, her term will end in 2024

Is AOC Being Primaried

As a progressive Democrat from New York, AOC faces a number of challenges in staying in office. First and foremost, she is up against a lot of establishment Democrats who may not be thrilled with her brand of politics.

Additionally, she has already drawn a number of high-profile primary challengers, including fellow Democrat Michelle Caruso-Cabrera.

According to our research, there isn’t a real challenge to AOC in the upcoming New York Primary. So it looks like she will be in office for at least another two years.

While it’s still early to say how these challenges will play out, one thing is for sure:

AOC is not going to have an easy ride when it comes to keeping her seat in Congress.
