Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) joined Politico Playbook co-authors Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer via video conference for a discussion on the coronavirus response, how her district is handling the pandemic and the 2020 election. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez said that her team was in communication with the Biden campaign and was talking with them about a range of policy issues. When asked if she would endorse him, she said, “I would love to see the vice president clarify and deepen his policy stances on certain issues, but aside from that, I think it’s incredibly important that we support the Democratic nominee in November.” She said that either Joe Biden or Donald Trump will be elected president in November and “we have to live in the reality of those choices.” The freshman lawmaker also said New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) was doing the best job he could but that there were “racial and economic inequities” in the state’s response. Additionally, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez said that she did not have any plans to challenge Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for his seat. close
