Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the biggest star in the Democrat Party.
And Ocasio-Cortez’s fame is only growing as she campaigns for socialist Presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders.
And now you won’t believe what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s next career move is about to be.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement of Bernie Sanders helped save his campaign.
Sanders left the campaign trail after suffering a heart attack and his falling poll numbers had pundits questioning if his Presidential bid was over.
But then Ocasio-Cortez endorsed him and rejuvenated his campaign, showing the grassroots energy of the Democrat Party was still behind Sanders.
Now Democrats are watching Ocasio-Cortez on the campaign trail and pining for the time when she reaches the age of 35 so she is constitutionally eligible to run for President.
“The future of the Democratic Party is not Pete Buttigieg. It’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” said Will Rodriguez-Kennedy, president of the California Young Democrats, which has endorsed Sanders. “She has gripped the attention of fellow millennials across the country. The Green New Deal has changed the conversation on environmental action in the Democratic Party.”
While the two democratic socialists are hyperfocused on 2020, some political operatives see their joint appearances as also laying the groundwork for a possible Ocasio-Cortez bid one day, purposefully or not. They’ve shown that she can excite Democrats in critical early-voting states.
The largest crowds at any presidential candidate event this year featured Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez. The events have allowed Ocasio-Cortez to hone her stump speech, which is not focused solely on Sanders and often includes long passages about her progressive vision. In one instance, she gave a keynote talk at a Las Vegas town hall for the campaign — delivered in Spanish — without Sanders present.
Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez’s fans have also begun thinking about AOC 2024 or 2028. At their rally in Los Angeles, chiropractor Samuel Aguilera predicted that Ocasio-Cortez will eventually run for the White House: “In fact, I’m excited about that. She’s intelligent. I’ve got three daughters, and I’m excited that she’s opening up our opportunities for women.” Another audience member at the event shouted “Ocasio-Cortez 2020!” as she spoke.
Tucker Carlson once said Ocasio-Cortez was the future of America.
Carlson did not mean that in a complimentary way as her socialist ideology would destroy the United States.
But her turn as a surrogate for Bernie Sanders has Democrats longing for the days when she can be the party’s national standard bearer.
