Ilhan Omar made a presidential announcement that left jaws on the ground

The 2020 Presidential contest just received a massive shakeup.

No one saw this development coming.

And Ilhan Omar made a presidential announcement that left jaws on the ground.

Bernie Sanders’ campaign was seen as over when he took a break from the trail after suffering a heart attack.

But at the latest presidential debate, Sanders’ campaign received a giant boost.

First, Sanders turned in a strong and energetic performance.

Second, his campaign announced that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib would all endorse Sanders on Saturday.

The Washington Post reports:

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.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), another member of the “Squad” of four liberal congresswomen, also announced late Tuesday that she was backing Sanders.

The surprise endorsements are a political coup for Sanders, 78, who has been fading in the polls and faced growing questions about his age and health. Before Tuesday’s Democratic debate, he had been sidelined from the campaign trail for two weeks by a heart attack.

“We’re looking forward to Saturday,” said Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez. Sanders teased the rally at Tuesday night’s presidential debate, saying he would have a “special guest” appearing with him in New York.

The members of the “Squad” are hugely popular with the Democrat Party base.

And this endorsement could cut into Elizabeth Warren’s momentum.

Sanders’ campaign had plateaued in terms of public polling.

If this endorsement does not move the needle, this could be the true end of the Sanders Campaign.
