Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently tweeted that she was terrified for the first ten months after winning her primary race last June. In the tweet, she states that she feared one slip up would cost her the general election. It should be noted that there was less than five months between her primary race and the general election, and even with several slip ups, she still easily won her race last November.
I probably spent the first 10 mos after my primary terrified, too. Each day felt like a tightrope, as if one slip would end it all.
Fear followed me around&moved into my apt.
But courage requires fear. We should teach each other how we handle fear, to help others be courageous. https://t.co/KmShyfcsiA

In my personal view, if the congresswoman was as terrified as she claims, she should have stepped aside and allowed a more competent candidate to take her spot.
