New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) has sparked a wave of controversy by endorsing President Biden’s re-election bid. AOC’s endorsement, voiced during a podcast episode, has drawn criticism from progressives who feel she has sidelined alternative Democratic contenders. While AOC expressed support for Biden, she also acknowledged areas of disagreement, particularly on immigration. Former national press secretary for Bernie Sanders, Briahna Joy Gray, labeled AOC’s move a “betrayal” and questioned its timing and lack of concessions. Progressive circles express disappointment and a sense of betrayal, citing AOC’s past statements that she and Biden belong to different parties. The endorsement raises questions about AOC’s ideological stance and the pragmatic realities of politics. It ignites a larger conversation about the future of progressive politics and the acceptance of more moderate currents.
