AOC Extends Support to Joe Biden’s Reelection Bid as President

**Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez endorses Joe Biden’s re-election campaign**

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has officially endorsed President Joe Biden’s re-election campaign, signaling Democratic unity from one of the party’s most liberal members.

“I think he’s done quite well, given the limitations that we have,” Ocasio-Cortez stated on the “Pod Save America” podcast, adding, “I do think that there are ebbs and flows.”

**AOC’s occasional disagreements with Biden**

Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described democratic socialist from New York, has occasionally differed with Biden and the party’s leaders. She voted against the deal the president negotiated with Republicans in May to raise the nation’s debt ceiling and cast the lone Democratic vote against a spending bill that aimed to keep the government operating and avoid a partial government shutdown.

**Past support for Bernie Sanders and uncertainty about 2024**

During the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, Ocasio-Cortez endorsed Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont. Last year, when asked if she would support the incumbent president in 2024, Ocasio-Cortez withheld an explicit endorsement.

**Minimal primary challenges for Biden**

In the face of the upcoming election next year, Biden is facing nominal primary challenges from self-help author Marianne Williamson and anti-vaccine activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

When asked about her potential support for Biden, Ocasio-Cortez confirmed, “I believe, given that field, yes.”

**Mixed assessment of Biden’s presidency**

The congresswoman praised Biden for his strong start in his presidency, highlighting the passage of the American Rescue Plan, which aimed at providing relief from the pandemic’s impact, and the Inflation Reduction Act, a major climate and healthcare law.

However, Ocasio-Cortez also noted that there were areas where she believed improvements could have been made.
