Even the leader of the Squad is conceding a big defeat for Bernie Sanders.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Queens) conceded a major setback for her progressive hero after Joe Biden crushed Sanders in Michigan and several other states.
“There’s no sugarcoating it. (It’s) a tough night,” Ocasio-Cortez told supporters on an Instagram video.
Ocasio-Cortez sought to take the high road, congratulating Biden on his win, which analysts say puts him in a commanding position to lock up the Democratic presidential nomination.
“If you win a race, you win a race,” the firebrand first-term lawmaker said.
