Obama releases list of candidate endorsements, skips AOC

Obama announced his 1st batch of 2020 endorsements Monday, backing 118 candidates from 17 states. One notable omission from the list was that of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY). Obama’s office said the ex-president selected candidates because he believed their election would ’advance key goals’. A second wave of endorsements are expected this fall after the remaining primaries have wrapped up.

Obama and AOC might both be democrats but they are pretty far apart idealogically. Also AOC already won her race so this might be a non story.
