Group Tied to AOC Already Opposing Biden

Former Vice President Joe Biden officially announced his 2020 presidential campaign on Thursday, and Justice Democrats, a group tied to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), has already come out in opposition to Biden’s candidacy.

“The old guard of the Democratic Party failed to stop Trump, and they can’t be counted on to lead the fight against his divide-and-conquer politics today. The party needs new leadership with a bold vision capable of energizing voters in the Democratic base who stayed home in 2016,” Justice Democrats said in a statement.

“Democrats are increasingly uniting around progressive populist policies like Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, free college, rejecting corporate money, and ending mass incarceration and deportation. We don’t need someone who voted for the Iraq War, for mass incarceration, and for the Bankruptcy Reform Act while voting against gay marriage, reproductive rights, and school desegregation,” the statement continued.

The group’s Twitter account also attacked Biden for supporting the Iraq War, the Bankruptcy Reform Act, and opposing school desegregation.

Justice Democrats is a top progressive outside group and gained national attention in 2018 for supporting Ocasio-Cortez’s primary campaign against ten-term incumbent Joe Crowley.
