Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants her followers to show Bernie the money.
The Congresswoman’s plea for donations to Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign came in a joint fundraising email.
“The only reason I believed I could launch a long shot run for Congress is because Bernie’s campaign proved that you can build a grassroots movement and win,” the freshman Democratic Socialist said Saturday morning. “Our priority is not only defeating Donald Trump in 2020. It is building a grassroots movement to dismantle the systems of which Trump is a symptom.”
AOC, who represents sections of The Bronx and Queens, ended the appeal with “Pa’lante” a Spanish slang term for “onward.”
