Ocasio-Cortez had only a narrow victory over her Democratic opponent in her NY district's primary, and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who has faced many of her own accusations of anti-Semitism, and also deployed the "dual loyalty" smear against some of her Congressional colleagues, got into office on a fluke, when the heir apparent for the seat in Congress was forced to drop out of the race.
