Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y), one of Sanders’s most high-profile surrogates, told the Times she understood Warren’s hesitation.
“I always want to see us come together as a progressive wing,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “I think that’s important and where we draw strength from. But at the same time, I come from the lens of an organizer,” she continued.
“And if someone doesn’t do what you want, you don’t blame them - you ask why. And you don’t demand that answer of that person - you reflect. And that reflection is where you can grow.”
Here’s hoping Bernie can do some growing.
