Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar support Bernie Sanders



WESTERVILLE, Ohio – Representative Ilhan Omar approved Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont on Tuesday for nomination as Democratic President, and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will support Mr Sanders at a rally this weekend, according to his campaign.

. Ocasio-Cortez, Democrat from New York and a star of the progressive left, will compete on Saturday at his "Bernie's Back" rally in Queens with Mr. Sanders. Earlier Tuesday, his campaign had angered that Mr. Sanders would have a "special guest" at the event.

The news of the endorsements came as Democratic presidential candidates rounded out their performances in the fourth debate of the main season. The planned support of Ms. Ocasio-Cortez was first reported by the Washington Post.

"Bernie leads a labor movement to defeat Donald Trump, who transcends generation, ethnicity, and geography," said Ms. Omar, a Minnesota Democrat. She cited the bill she and Mr. Sanders had made in June to extinguish the country's total student debt of $ 1.6 trillion.
