Brennan Suen was inspired. After the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) urged progressives to dig in and work to change someone’s mind about voting.

Suen took her words to heart and in a touching Twitter thread, he recounted what happened when he spoke to his Republican grandmother about her vote. His story quickly went viral and that’s when AOC replied.

“After RBG died,” he tweeted, “I listened to AOC say, there is someone in your life who only you can get to in this election, and it is your job to get to them. Since then, I have been filled with anxiety knowing what I needed to do. For me, that’s my 94 year old grandmother.”

“She has always voted Republican.”

He goes on to recount the emotional conversation with granny and her response, admitting, “I have never called her crying, but I did today.”

“I am still crying.”

As his story took the internet by storm and other people starting telling their own stories of convincing their loved ones to vote, the Congresswoman tweeted her own response to Suen.

“Congratulations,” she tweeted. “Proud of you and your grandmother!”
