Ocasio-Cortez hosting Spanish-only town hall for Bernie Sanders campaign

By Shelby Talcott

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez plans to host a Spanish-only town hall Dec. 22 for 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign.

Ocasio-Cortez endorsed the Vermont senator in October along with Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib. She was reportedly the first among “The Squad” to back Sanders in the Democratic primary.

Join @AOC for a political meeting in Las Vegas on Sunday, December 22,” Sanders tweeted in Spanish Wednesday. “The event will be held entirely in Spanish.”

Sanders has been targeting the Spanish vote, raising the most money from Latino donors than any other Democratic candidate according to a November New York Times article. A December national poll from Emerson polling also put Sanders in the lead among Hispanic and Latino voters with 36%.

Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley is the only Democrat out of “The Squad” to pass on endorsing Sanders. She announced her endorsement of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in November.
