Ocasio-Cortez Calls for 2020 Dem To Drop Out
Ocasio-Cortez Calls for 2020 Dem To Drop Out Longshot Democrat presidential candidate John Delaney received a scolding from New York Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday along with marching orders to drop out of the race because he does not see things her way on the issue of Medicare for All. Delaney, a former congressman from Maryland, had sought to boost his campaign by appearing at the California Democratic Convention along with multiple other presidential candidates. Although Delaney announced his campaign in mid-2017, he does not register support in many polls, according to RealClearPolitics. During his appearance, he dissed Medicare for All as “not good policy,” Fox News reported, and was roundly booed. That led Ocasio-Cortez to assume the role of arbiter of who should and should not be running for president. “Since there’s so many people running for President (& not enough for Senate), instead of obsessing over who‘s a ‘frontrunner,’ maybe we can start w some general eliminations. This awful, untrue line got boo’ed for a full minute. John Delaney, thank you but please sashay away,” she tweeted Sunday. At the California Democratic Convention, Delany was roundly booed when he criticized the concept of Medicare for All. “Medicare for All may sound good, but it’s actually not good policy, nor is it good politics,” Delaney said, according to CNN.
