AOC has made her choice as to which 2020 Democratic candidate she’s going to endorse. And the winner is…
WAPO – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, one of the most influential voices among young liberals and a rising Democratic star, plans to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for president and appear with him at a rally on Saturday, according to two people with knowledge of her plans.
The surprise endorsement is a political coup for Sanders, 78, who has been fading in the polls and has faced growing questions about his age and health. Before Tuesday’s Democratic debate, he had been sidelined from the campaign trail for two weeks by a heart attack.
“We’re looking forward to Saturday,” said Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez. Sanders teased the rally at Tuesday night’s presidential debate, saying he would have a “special guest” appearing with him in New York.
Another person with knowledge of the congresswoman’s plans, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe a decision that has not yet been announced publicly, confirmed the endorsement. Sanders campaign officials declined to comment.
Well that settles it. It’s over. Grandpa socialist will win the primary thanks to AOC’s coveted endorsement.
Of course, Big Chief Elizabeth Warren hardest hit. After this debate, and now this news, Warren will probably be in her teepee tonight smoking a little peyote with her 1/1000th Cherokee family as she contemplates what to do with her life next…
