AOC makes impassioned fundraising appeal for Bernie Sanders

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.”
