Interesting to see what Warren supporters (DK) will think of AOC now.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, a star of the progressive left, plans to endorse Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont for the Democratic presidential nomination, Mr. Sanders’s campaign said Tuesday night.

Word of the endorsement emerged just as the Democratic candidates were delivering their closing remarks at a primary debate in Ohio.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez will appear at Mr. Sanders’s “Bernie’s Back” rally in New York on Saturday, the campaign said. Earlier Tuesday, it had teased that Mr. Sanders would have a “special guest” at the event.

Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) will also endorse Sanders, reported CNN’s Greg Krieg.

“Bernie is leading a working class movement to defeat Donald Trump that transcends generation, ethnicity and geography,” Omar said in a statement, adding, “it’s why I believe Bernie Sanders is the best candidate to take on Donald Trump in 2020.”

“Ilhan is a leader of strength and courage,” said Sanders. “She will not back down from a fight with billionaires and the world’s most powerful corporations to transform our country so it works for all of us. I’m proud of what we’ve done in Congress, and together we will build a multiracial working class coalition to win the White House.”

“Between his stellar performance at the debate tonight and AOC’s pending endorsement,” tweeted Al Jazeera journalist Sana Saeed, “this is a huge moment and Sanders cannot, and should not, be ignored any longer by those who continue to erase him, his candidacy, and his supporters.”

Reflecting on the strong performance and the endorsement, Young Turks reporter Emma Vigeland called it “a historic night for the Sanders campaign.”
