Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tells 2020 Democrat John Delaney to 'please sashay away' Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) blasted 2020 Democratic candidate John Delaney for remarks Sunday at the California Democratic Convention where he said Medicare for All is "actually not good policy."Delaney, who was booed by the crowd for his comments, said "Medicare for all may sound good but it's actually not good policy nor is it good politics." Ocasio-Cortez, a freshman lawmaker who has championed the progressive policy, said in a post on Twitter Sunday that it is time for Delaney to "sashay away.

WASHINGTON — Two of the best-known women in Democratic politics had just recorded a video to upbraid Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin, when Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez started bantering about the final episode of “Game of Thrones.” Their riff bemoaning the show’s anti-feminist finale was caught on tape, slapped up on Twitter, and in a flash drew almost 2 million viewers.

Most every time Warren and Ocasio-Cortez have teamed up of late — for lunch, legislative matters and video messaging — they have drawn millions of eyeballs.

Sanders slams 'anti-Semitic article' about his wealth

Sanders slams 'anti-Semitic article' about his wealth Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Saturday described an article from Politico about his wealth as being anti-Semitic. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); "Call that what it is, an anti-Semitic article," the 2020 presidential candidate said after The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur mentioned the article in an interview. Politico's article, "The Secret of Bernie's Millions," has been blasted by progressives as being anti-Semitic for its portrayal of the Jewish senator's wealth.

Alexandria Ocasio - Cortez , D-N.Y., said Thursday that she was "entertaining" the possibility of throwing her support behind a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, saying that Sens. Bernie Sanders I-Vt., and Elizabeth Warren , D-Mass., and appear to be strong contenders.

Senator Bernie Sanders and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio - Cortez set to announce plan to cap credit card interest rates at 15 percent; chief congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel reports from Capitol Hill. Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders are someone she could endorse .

They have also raised eyebrows.

Warren fans wonder whether — and hope that — Ocasio-Cortez may eventually endorse the Massachusetts senator in her bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

But the freshman House member, a superstar of the progressive movement, has more history with Warren’s leading rival for progressive votes in the 2020 Democratic primary, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. They too have teamed up on many legislative and political matters. Many Democrats find it hard to imagine Ocasio-Cortez will not eventually back Sanders, as she did in 2016.

The fact that a 29-year-old freshman House member is being sought out by two presidential candidates with years of congressional seniority who are more than twice her age speaks volumes about the state of the Democratic Party and the dynamics of its primary process.

Elizabeth Warren says she's 'proud' her campaign workers unionized

Elizabeth Warren says she's 'proud' her campaign workers unionized Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren said on Thursday that she supported her campaign workers' decision to form a union. The announcement comes after CNBC reported on Tuesday that nonmanagement campaign employees authorized International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 2320 to represent them. "My campaign has submitted their support to join @IBEW 2320," Warren wrote in a post on Twitter. "Every worker who wants to join a union, bargain collectively, & make their voice heard should have a chance to do so.

Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders — not just for your vote, but for the support of one person in particular: U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio - Cortez . Sanders and Warren want an endorsement from the freshman congresswoman and progressive lightning rod, and both of their teams have made

Ocasio-Cortez embodies a younger generation of Democrats led by women and people of color — a progressive voting bloc that brings intense passion to the fight to oust President Donald Trump. She also has a gift for creating social media sensations that old-school Democrats can only dream of.

“I would argue that she is one of the most important endorsements in the Democratic Party right now,” said Rebecca Katz, a strategist who used to work for former Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid of Nevada. “She has a huge reach beyond any other member of Congress. She knows how to use her voice.”

That voice could make a big difference in the sub rosa contest between Warren and Sanders for dominance among the party’s most progressive voters and in the jockeying to emerge as the leading left challenger to Joe Biden, who currently leads in polling. Sanders, who became a folk hero to progressives in his 2016 presidential bid, has held a significant lead over Warren since he entered the race, but the spread has narrowed in recent weeks.

Alexandria Ocasio - Cortez (/ˌoʊˌkɑːsioʊ kɔːrˈtɛz/; Spanish: [oˈkasjo koɾˈtes]; born October 13, 1989), often referred to by her initials, AOC

www.politico.com/story/2019/05/13/ alexandria - ocasio - cortez - bernie - sanders - elizabeth - warren - 2020 -1318929. 129. Headlines, (Encryption, Middle East, Dems 2020 ), Robert Mueller, Trudeau & Liberals, and more. 1 day, 6 hours ago.

Ocasio-Cortez told CNN this spring that she did not expect to make an endorsement in the crowded 2020 field “for a while,” but in discussing what she was looking for in a nominee, she singled out Warren and Sanders.

“What I would 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 said. “I think Sen. Sanders has that. I also think Sen. Warren has that.”

Asked for more specifics about when she would make an endorsement, her spokesman, Corbin Trent, said it would be early enough to have an impact.

“She wants to make sure her endorsement matters in the race,” he said. “Timing is important.”

One candidate she almost surely will not endorse in the early primaries is Biden.

He “does not particularly animate me,” she said in an interview earlier this spring with the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery.”

But she was, perhaps surprisingly, prepared to be a party loyalist in the end: “I will support whoever the Democratic nominee is,” she said.

For Democrats other than Warren and Sanders, association with Ocasio-Cortez could be risky: Party centrists worry about her high profile as a democratic socialist. She has become the poster child for Republicans’ cornerstone strategy for 2020 — portraying the entire Democratic Party as pursuing a socialist agenda.

Man arrested for trespassing into Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's New York office

Man arrested for trespassing into Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's New York office An unidentified man trespassed into Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's district office in Queens on Saturday, sprayed a fire extinguisher and then hid in a closet until police were able to detain him, according to New York's ABC7. Police were alerted to the incident by building security, and the man is in police custody, the station reported, citing the New York Police Department. 

Alexandria Ocasio - Cortez ’s stunning victory over the DCCC Death Star last year in the Bronx Alexandria Ocasio - Cortez is a Democratic Socialist just like Bernie Sanders is a Democratic Socialist, yet only Elizabeth Warren . This is the only other plausible option I see given AOC’s stated ideology.

Alexandria Ocasio - Cortez (D-N.Y.) said Thursday that she's "entertaining" the idea of throwing her support behind a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, saying that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Sen.

Republicans believe their job has been made easier since several 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, including Biden, the self-styled centrist, have embraced Ocasio-Cortez’s signature issue — the Green New Deal agenda for combating climate change.

“The fact that Joe Biden is embracing the Green New Deal shows you how far left the Democratic Party has gone,” said Michael McAdams, spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, the political arm of the House GOP.

A March Quinnipiac University poll found that more people (36%) had an unfavorable view of Ocasio-Cortez than a favorable one (23%). But 38% didn’t know enough to have an opinion. Opinion was of course deeply split by party: 74% of Republicans viewed her unfavorably; just 7% of Democrats did.

It is not clear how much an Ocasio-Cortez endorsement would mean in the early-voting states that matter most: In Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, voters like to make their own judgments, and the endorsement of a progressive Democrat from New York City might not matter much.

Still, she has already succeeded in using her social-media megaphone to shape the 2020 debate and promote issues she cares about.

She called for former Rep. John Delaney of Maryland to end his long-shot presidential bid after he was booed at the California Democratic Party convention for saying Medicare for all was bad politics and policy.

Dems have "a real risk of losing" without "transformational" candidate: Ocasio-Cortez

Dems have Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez talks about the 2020 Democratic candidates with Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl on "This Week" Sunday.

Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio - Cortez won’t endorse Vermont independent Sen. Bernie Sanders despite campaigning with him as a fellow socialist.

The Rise of Alexandria Ocasio - Cortez , 2020 Kingmaker. Alexandria Ocasio - Cortez has been a congresswoman for all of one week; seven months ago, she was a political unknown. Yet Ocasio - Cortez is already having a significant impact on the Democratic primary, setting both a policy

She teamed up with Sen. Kamala Harris of California on a bill to expand access to federally subsidized housing. The two are not ideological soulmates but are looking for ways to promote the bill together, perhaps in a video.

Her biggest footprint has been left on the climate change debate. The Green New Deal was regarded as a wish list when Ocasio-Cortez and other progressives unveiled it earlier this year. Now it is almost a mandatory part of candidates’ stump speech.

For now, progressive candidates are happy to shine in Ocasio-Cortez’s reflected social media glow.

“Irrespective of any kind of endorsement, the fact she is often lending support for the progressive movement is so immensely helpful,” said Faiz Shakir, Sanders’ campaign manager. On whether she will endorse Sanders, Shakir said, “I want to respect that she is going to have her own process. We will cross that bridge when we get to it.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s ties to Sanders reach back to his 2016 campaign, when she worked as a volunteer organizer in New York. When she ran for Congress in 2018, in her upstart primary challenge to 10-term Democratic Rep. Joseph Crowley, she was endorsed by Our Revolution, a political organization close to Sanders — but not by Sanders himself.

After she won the primary, which was tantamount to winning the general election in the heavily Democratic district, she was enough of a political celebrity that she campaigned with Sanders on behalf of other Democrats in the midterm election.

Before she was even sworn in, she appeared with Sanders at a December 2018 forum on climate change.

Trump cites Ocasio-Cortez to defend himself against impeachment

Trump cites Ocasio-Cortez to defend himself against impeachment President Trump on Sunday cited Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), one of the many Democrats calling for impeachment hearings against Trump, to defend himself against impeachment. 

Alexandria Ocasio - Cortez (born October 13, 1989), often referred to by her initials AOC, is a progressive Democrat racist, Soros mercenary and outspoken advocate of the murderous ideology of Socialism.

Elizabeth Warren met with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio - Cortez , the progressive freshman lawmaker from New York, in Washington on Thursday. He said Warren did not ask the New Yorker for an endorsement during their lunch near Capitol Hill. Ocasio - Cortez has not yet backed a candidate in

“She is a bold progressive fighting for a Green New Deal,” Sanders said then.

The two also appeared at another event on the Green New Deal in May, when Ocasio-Cortez took a not-so-veiled swipe at Biden, just days after reports surfaced that he was considering a “middle ground” climate plan — a report his campaign denied.

“I will be damned if the same politicians who refused to act then are going to try to come back today and say we need a ‘middle of the road’ approach to save our lives,” she declared.

Ocasio-Cortez and Warren had not gotten to know each other until this year. They met for lunch in March at Olivia, a Mediterranean restaurant in downtown Washington. The lunch became a Twitter sensation after they were spotted. In response, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted about the Middle Eastern yogurt dish they ate, and got more than 100,000 “likes.”

On more substantive matters, Ocasio-Cortez supported Warren’s campaign promise to break up big tech companies. And she spoke up to deride a news report that appeared to criticize legal consulting work Warren did while she taught at Harvard Law School.

“Breaking News: Lady Had a Job, Got Paid More Than Me,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

Their joint video on Mnuchin, which raised questions about his role in the demise of Sears, where he had been a board member, got hundreds of thousands of views on Warren’s Facebook page.

Warren lionized Ocasio-Cortez when Time magazine asked her to write about the young member of Congress for its “100 most influential people of 2019” issue.

“A year ago, she was taking orders across a bar,” Warren wrote. “Today, millions are taking cues from her.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s divided 2020 loyalties were on full display in the “Skullduggery” interview.

“‘I’m very supportive of Bernie’s run,” she said. “I haven’t endorsed anybody, but I’m very supportive of Bernie. I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is … truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational.”

Sanders denies tweet about corporate Democrats was dig at Warren.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Wednesday denied that a tweet Wednesday referencing corporate Democrats supporting "anybody but Bernie" was a direct shot at his fellow progressive Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). Rather, he said the tweet was aimed at the Washington think-tank Third Way. "That tweet was not about Elizabeth Warren at all. Not at all. Elizabeth is a friend of mine, and we're going to run what I hope are issue-oriented campaigns," Sanders told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "Cuomo Primetime.
