A group of freshman Democrats, known as “the squad,” will reportedly endorse 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders after the fourth Presidential debate Tuesday night.
New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib all plan on endorsing Sanders, according to Fox News. This comes after news broke during the fourth debate that Ocasio-Cortez would be endorsing Sanders.
“We’re looking forward to Saturday,” Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez said, according to The Washington Post. Sanders said on Tuesday that he would have a “special guest” with him in New York, teasing the freshman Democrat’s appearance.
Ocasio-Cortez was the first member of “the squad” to reportedly throw her support for Sanders, as Omar and Tlaib also plan on endorsing the 2020 candidate.
