Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed-in on the 2020 race for the White House during a recent interview with the New York Times; complaining the Biden campaign hasn’t reached out to her for support.
“Has the Biden campaign reached out to you?” asked the Times.
“No,” fired-back Ocasio-Cotez. “There’s this talk about unity as this kind of vague, kumbaya, kind of term. Unity and unifying isn’t a feeling, it’s a process. And what I hope does not happen in this process is that everyone just tries to shoo it along and brush real policies — that mean the difference of life and death or affording your insulin and not affording your insulin — just brush that under the rug as an aesthetic difference of style.”
We are not endorsing @JoeBiden.

“There’s also this idea that if we all just support the nominee that voters will come along as well. I’ve flagged, very early, two patterns that I saw [among Biden’s campaign], which is underperformance among Latinos and young people, both of which are very important demographics in November. And so, I don’t think this conversation about changes that need to be made is one about throwing the progressive wing of the party a couple of bones — I think this is about how we can win,” she added.
