Ocasio-Cortez Isn’t Ready to Endorse Bernie for 2020

Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t ready to endorse her old boss, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), if he runs for the Democratic Party’s nomination for president in 2020.

Ocasio-Cortez, who was an organizer for Sanders’ failed 2016 presidential campaign, rose to national prominence after her stunning primary win over 10-time incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) in June.

Sanders did not endorse Ocasio-Cortez in her primary campaign against Crowley.

Since Ocasio-Cortez’s stunning victory, she has been called the future of the Democratic Party and appeared on the 2018 campaign trail with Sanders.

“She’ll see what the field looks like,” Ocasio-Cortez’s communications director Corbin Trent told Politico on Thursday. She’s focused on 2018, [Bernie’s] focused on 2018. We’re all focused on 2018.”

This announcement by Ocasio-Cortez follows several former Sanders staffers telling Politico they are looking for someone other than Sanders to support in 2020.
