The Bernie Sanders campaign announced on Tuesday that it will pick up two major endorsements, earning thumbs up from half of "The Squad".
Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar plan to back the 78-year-old senator from Vermont over his other rivals vying for the White House in 2020. AOC got her start in politics volunteering for Sanders on his 2016 presidential primary bid, while Omar notes her work in Congress alongside Sanders as the reason for her endorsement.
According to CNN, another member of "The Squad," Rep. Rashida Tlaib, is also planning to support Sanders, with that announcement said to come on Saturday.
