Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: A Biden Presidential Run Wouldn't ‘Animate’ Me

As the second most talked-about politician in the country, any Democratic presidential hopefuls would love an endorsement from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She's not let slip who she's backing yet, but has now made clear who she won't be supporting. In an interview with the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery,” the congresswoman was asked which candidate she would back in the Democratic race. “I truly do not have one yet. I truly do not,” she replied, but added that the prospect of a Biden run doesn't “animate” her and that she has “a lot of issues” with a potential Biden bid. She was an organizer for Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign, and hinted that she may back him again. “I’m very supportive of Bernie’s run ... I haven’t endorsed anybody, but I’m very supportive of Bernie,” Ocasio-Cortez said, adding, “I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is … truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational.” Asked if she would ever run for president, she replied: “I really don’t know ... I think about it every once in a while, but … this is pretty hard already.”
