Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez feeling the Bern? Is she “all in” with Liz?
The rookie congresswoman’s endorsement will be highly-coveted in the 2020 Democratic primary. And based on her comments Thursday, it seems Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) are prime contenders to land it.
Speaking with reporters on Capitol Hill, Ocasio-Cortez was asked about the prospect of endorsing the Vermont Senator — after they rolled out legislation on Thursday to cap credit card interest at 15 percent.
“What I’d like to see in a presidential candidate is one that has a coherent worldview, and logic, from which all these policy proposals are coming forward,” Ocasio-Cortez told reporters. “I think Sen. Sanders has that. I also think Sen. Warren has that.”
The congresswoman added that she’s “entertaining” an endorsement but “it’s not going to be for a while.
The congresswoman was also asked about the current leader in the field, former Vice President Joe Biden. But she ignored the question — opting to briefly answer a query from another reporter instead, before darting out.
