Bernie Sanders Endorses Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for Re-Election

You know what they say about “birds of a feather,” so it should surprise no one that self-described Democratic-Socialist, Bernie Sanders, has endorsed fellow Democratic-Socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) for re-election.

The failed former candidate for president gave his endorsement for AOC for re-election in the 14th district of New York, which will hold its primary election in late August.

“Congresswoman @AOC has been a fierce champion for the working people of NY-14,” Sanders tweeted, saying that he is “proud” to endorse her for re-election.

“She is an inspiration for millions of young people who understand that if they are going to have a bright future, they must be engaged in political struggle,” the Vermont senator added.

Ocasio-Cortez responded to Sanders’ endorsement, writing “Thank you tío,” followed by a heart emoji.

If she manages to beat her challenger in the primary, AOC will face off against a Republican opponent in November.

Sanders added his endorsement of Ocasio-Cortez to a Twitter thread announcing his support for five members of Congress in their re-election campaigns.

The other endorsements include Democrats Jamaal Bowman (N.Y.), Pramila Jayapal (Washington), Cori Bush (Missouri), and Ilhan Omar (Minnesota) – all of which share a far-left agenda with Sanders and AOC.

    AOC needs to stop going down on Bernie! This GIVE HEAD/GET AHEAD has to stop!
    These 5 have already over stayed their welcome, time to elect someone who will be FOR THE PEOPLE, Not just to play for the spotlight as AOC, Omar do. Need to elect people who don’t hate America, and are not funded by terrorists!!
