Three Squad Members Make Their Presidential Endorsement

Three of the member of the all-female progressive "squad" have made their endorsement for president and surprisingly it is not one of the females who are running.

According to The Daily Wire:

Far-left Democrat Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ilhan Omar (MN) and Rashida Tlaib (MI) are reportedly going to endorse socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to be the Democrat nominee to face President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, one of the most influential voices among young liberals and a rising Democratic star, plans to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for president and appear with him at a rally on Saturday, according to two people with knowledge of her plans,” The Washington Post reported. “The endorsement could be a blow for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who, like Sanders, is running on a platform of sweeping liberal change and who has emphasized her role as a female pioneer.”


Omar wrote:

Bernie is leading a working-class movement to defeat Donald Trump that transcends generation, ethnicity, and geography. That is why he is fighting to cancel all student debt. That is why he is fighting to make all school meals universal. That is why he is fighting for a humane immigration policy that treats immigrants as human beings and not criminals. And it’s why Bernie is fighting to end our forever wars and truly prioritize human rights in our foreign policy–no matter who violates them. And it’s why I believe Bernie Sanders is the best candidate to take on Donald Trump in 2020.

 

The fact that the far-left trio of freshman congresswomen would endorse Sanders instead of Warren is a head-scratching decision, as Warren is considered by many to be a stronger candidate than Sanders.

It doesn't appear that the three wield too much political power but it will be interesting to see if this hurts them in November 2020.
