U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says she’s “been concerned” about some Democrats not wanting to support her candidate – Sen. Bernie Sanders – if he eventually wins the party’s presidential nomination.
The freshman congresswoman from New York made the remarks Thursday night during an appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”
“I think it’s a two-way street,” Ocasio-Cortez told Meyers. “I’ve been concerned by some folks that say if Bernie’s the nominee, they won’t support him — and the other way around.”
“I’ve been concerned by some folks that say if Bernie’s the nominee, they won’t support him — and the other way around.”
The comments came amid accusations from many, including President Trump, that Democratic Party leaders were looking to somehow block Sanders from being the party’s standard-bearer in November, despite his early primary wins rivaled only by former Vice President Joe Biden’s Super Tuesday performance.

After Sanders won the Democrats’ Nevada caucuses, Trump said it was possible the U.S. senator from Vermont could face him in the general election – adding “unless they cheat him out of it,” referring to party leaders.
But since then, suspicions of behind-the-scenes dealing escalated after two moderate candidates — Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg — each dropped out of the race ahead of Super Tuesday – giving a big boost to Biden, who surged back into the race after being written off by many.
