Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dangles 2020 endorsement: Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren?
5 mins read

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.
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.
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.

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."

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