Ocasio-Cortez told Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery” that she will support whoever wins the nomination, but said a bid by Biden would be going backward, instead of forward.
“That does not particularly animate right now,” she said, adding that she has “a lot of issues” with a potential Biden run, Fox News reports.
“I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the good old days with Obama, with Obama’s vice president. There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward.”
