Dem Dissension: AOC uses DNC speech to nominate Bernie Sanders, ignores Biden

In one of the shortest speeches of the convention, progressive star Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did not endorse Biden for president Tuesday but instead nominated his 2020 rival, Bernie Sanders.

Her appearance was a part of the procedure of the convention to give a nod to the person who came in second place in the delegate count.

“In a time when millions of people in the United States are looking for deep systemic solutions to our crises of mass evictions, unemployment, and lack of health care, and espíritu del pueblo and out of a love for all people, I hereby second the nomination of Senator Bernard Sanders of Vermont for president of the United States of America,” she said.
