Former President Barack Obama recently published a list of his political endorsements. While I’m sure we are all very lucky to have this list, it’s interesting to note there was a glaring omission.
Although over 100 political candidates were named, the freshmen representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez was not one of the blessed few who received an endorsement.
That’s gotta sting.
“I’m proud to endorse this diverse and hopeful collection of thoughtful, empathetic and highly qualified Democrats,”said Obama. “Together, these candidates will help us redeem our country’s promise by sticking up for working people, restoring fairness and opportunity to our system, and fighting for the good of all Americans — not just those at the top.”
Even back in 2018 when AOC defeated the her Democrat challenger before winning the position, Obama did not extend an official endorsement.
