Very few will follow who AOC endorses. Bringing her political star power to races for Congress, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday endorsed Democratic Sen. Ed Markey for re-election in Massachusetts as he faces a potential primary challenge from Rep. Joe Kennedy III.
Ocasio-Cortez said in a video released by Markey's campaign that she's backing the Democratic incumbent as one of the Senate's "strongest progressives" and her partner on the Green New Deal climate change proposal.She said she is "proud to enthusiastically support" Markey's reelection. The Boston Globe first reported the endorsement.
Ocasio-Cortez's nod comes as the liberal newcomer is skipping presidential primary endorsements, for now, and turning her political attention on congressional races for the House and Senate.
