Sanders Endorses ‘the Squad’ to Maintain House Majority

January 30, 2020

2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders on Wednesday endorsed seven progressive lawmakers, including the four far-left members of the “Squad,” ahead of the looming general election as Democrats attempt to maintain their majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, according to Breitbart News.

The Squad consists of young freshmen Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley, all of whom except Pressley have endorsed Sanders’ White House bid, and all of whom share his vision of an America “fundamentally transformed” by socialism.

“This is the most important election in our lifetime and I’m proud there are so many candidates running for Congress who understand that real change comes from the bottom on up, not the top on down,” Sanders said in a statement.

“They’re all strong advocates for real change and together we will build a movement to transform this nation so that it works for all our people.”
