Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, 78, has been endorsed in his bid for the 2020 Democratic nomination by three of the four members of The Squad – Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

“AOC” is set to be announced as the “Special Guest” at a Sanders rally in New York City, dubbed “Bernie’s Back” this coming Saturday, according to a report by VICE News. It will be the first rally held by the independent senator since he suffered a heart attack during a campaign event several weeks ago.

The Bernie Sanders platform includes:
• Medicare for all
• A ‘Green New Deal’
• Increasing taxes for the rich, and
• Cancelling all student loan debt.

Sanders is leading the field of Democratic presidential candidates in fundraising together with Elizabeth Warren; on their third-quarter fundraising reports, Sanders had $33.7 million, followed by Warren with $25.7 million. For comparison, Joe Biden had $8.9 million – partly because he had burned through more than he raised over the past three months, according to The Associated Press.
