AOC Reaffirms Endorsement of Biden: 'He is in This Race, and I Support Him' (VIDEO)

Progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has strongly reaffirmed her endorsement of President Joe Biden.

Many Democrats have called for Biden to step aside after his debate performance late last month, and reporters outside the Capitol asked Ocasio-Cortez about the matter Monday evening.

“I have spoken to the President over the weekend. I have spoken with him extensively,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “He made clear then — and he has made clear since — that he is in this race.”

“The matter is closed,” the New York congresswoman continued. “He had reiterated that this morning.”

"He has reiterated that to the public. Joe Biden is our nominee. He is not leaving this race. He is in this race and I support him. Now what I think is critically important right now is that we focus on what it takes to win in November. Because he is running against Donald Trump, who is a man with 34 felony convictions that has committed 34 felony crimes and not a single Republican has asked Donald Trump to not be the nominee."

A clip of Ocasio-Cortez's response was shared on social media by the Biden/Harris campaign team.

The congresswoman added, "I'm here to win on this democracy and I'm here to win in November, and what's critically important is what the president, I believe, that the president needs to do, and I have communicated this, what what the president and the White House should do in order to make sure that we win in November. And that is making sure that we pivot and working, and increasingly commit to the issues that are critically important to working people across this country."
