Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won’t commit to Biden endorsement in 2024

With mounting crises continuing to engulf the White House, panic over President Joe Biden’s viability as a candidate for re-election appears to be growing, with high-profile Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) on Sunday refusing to weigh in on whether he would endorse him in 2024, as the New York Post reports.

During an appearance on CNN’s State of the Nation, Ocasio-Cortez was asked by host Dana Bash whether she plans to throw her support behind Biden, should he decide to seek a second term, a question the congresswoman did not appear eager to answer.

“First of all, I’m focused on winning this majority right now and preserving a majority this year in 2022,” said Ocasio-Cortez, referring to the all-important midterm contests in November.

“So we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it,” the progressive firebrand continued, adding, “[b]ut I think if the president has a vision, then that’s something certainly we’re all willing to entertain and examine when the time comes.”

To her credit, Bash did not let Ocasio-Cortez off the hook with that statement, firing back, “That’s not a yes,” to which the legislator nervously replied, “Yes, I think we should endorse when we get to it.” WATCH:

The non-committal approach from AOC comes right on the heels of a blockbuster report in the New York Times suggesting that she is not alone among prominent Democrats in thinking that perhaps it is time for the current commander in chief to step aside if the party is to have any measure of success in the next few election cycles.

The liberal outlet cited interviews with roughly 50 Democrat insiders and found that almost all of them are of the opinion that Biden no longer has what it takes to be the party’s standard-bearer, with Democratic National Committee (DNC) member Steve Simeonidis pointedly remarking, “To say our country was on the right track would flagrantly depart from reality. Biden should announce his intent not to seek re-election in ’24 right after the midterms.”

Fellow DNC member Shelia Huggins put things even more bluntly, declaring, “Democrats need fresh, bold leadership for the 2024 presidential race. That can’t be Biden.” But given her disastrous performance in office thus far, few appear to have much confidence that it can be Vice President Kamala Harris either, leaving the left with a very serious dilemma, indeed.
