‘We Can Likely Push’ Biden To The Left If He Wins, AOC Says


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) expressed confidence on Tuesday that the far-left wing of her party will be able to push Democratic nominee Joe Biden “in a more progressive direction” if he becomes president.

Speaking with Just The News on Capitol Hill, Ocasio-Cortez said she agreed with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) that Biden is not liberal enough. Regarding Sanders, she said, “We’re different people, and clearly I, in the primary, one of the reasons why I was supportive of Senator Sanders was because of how progressive his stances are, but, you know, the primaries are over, and right now what is most important is to make sure that we ensure a Democratic victory in November and that we continue to push Vice President Biden on issues from marijuana to climate change to foreign policy.”
