WASHINGTON – Rep.Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez drew the ire of some of her fellow progressives over the weekend after endorsing President Biden’s 2024 bid for re-election.
The 33-year-old New York lawmaker was asked during an interview with the liberal podcast “Pod Save America” if she would be supporting Biden or one of his two challengers – Marianne Williamson and Robert Kennedy Jr. – for the Democratic presidential nomination next year.
“I think he’s done quite well given the limitations that we have,” the Democratic socialist said on the podcast Thursday, noting that “given that field” of candidates, she would support the president’s reelection bid.
“I do think that there are ebbs and flows, as there are in any presidency,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“There are areas that I think were quite strong when [Biden] came right out of the gate with the American Rescue Plan and of course the Inflation Reduction Act was a massive step in terms of our climate agenda,” she added.
