Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is reportedly set to endorse Senator Bernie Sanders.

Sanders alluded to a “special guest” at an upcoming rally during tonight’s debate. Per the Washington Post, Ocasio-Cortez is that guest and will be officially endorsing him at that upcoming Queens event:

“We’re looking forward to Saturday,” said Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez… 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 has also apparently scored the endorsements of both Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, per CNN:

UPDATE — 11:50 pm ET: Omar has officially endorsed Sanders.
