The Washington Post reported that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) – the leader of the Squad – will formally endorse Sanders for the Democrat nomination on Saturday.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) is also expected to make a formal announcement, according to CNN.
But Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) has already voiced her support on Twitter and revealed that AOC and Tlaib are “on board” as well.
“Bernie is leading a working class movement to defeat Donald Trump that transcends generation, ethnicity and geography,” Omar said in a statement posted on Twitter by the Sanders campaign.
“I believe Bernie Sanders is the best candidate to take on Donald Trump in 2020,” Omar added.
The endorsements are unsurprising given The Squad is vehemently socialist like Sanders. Though Warren also represents the progressive wing of the Democrat Party, she has repeatedly said she is a capitalist.
It’s unclear if Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), the least-known Squad member, will will follow along with the rest of the group’s endorsement, but it seems likely given they stick together on most other issues.
The endorsement isn’t without risk on The Squad’s part — 78-year-old Sanders was hospitalized after suffering a heart attack less than two weeks ago.
Likewise, the endorsements will solidify Sanders as THE far-left socialist candidate in the Democrat field, which could alienate independents and moderate Democrats in the general election should Sanders win the nomination.

The segment featured clips of various Democratic 2020 presidential candidates and other prominent Democrats explaining their views on key issues from marijuana legalization to gun control to even the abolishment of prisons.
After a segment featuring Democratic views on drug legalization, Carlson set his sights on New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who this week tweeted her belief that prisons should eventually be abolished.
“Of course, there were no prisons before racists in America thought them up,” Carlson quipped. “So with no more prisons, presumably that will mean no more prisoners, right? So with all of those felons back on the street and in your neighborhood – hey, felons – you may suddenly be a little bit concerned about protecting yourself and your family, but tough. In Democratic America, self-defense will be banned because they are taking your guns.”
The Fox News host then played a clip of Democrats talking about taking so-called assault weapons.
“By the way, that’ll make home invasions a little tougher to deal with,” said Carlson. “Lots of luck with that. Let’s hope you don’t get assaulted and need to go to a hospital, because in Democratic America you might find the hospitals a bit overcrowded. Why? Well, the left is giving free health care to the rest of the planet.”
Cue clips of Democrats supporting universal health care, even for illegal aliens.
“Raise your hand if you don’t want a single normal person to even consider voting for you ever,” said the Fox News host. “Free health care for illegal aliens. That’s quite an idea. How’s our already broke country going into pay for that? Here’s a calculator. You figure it out. But don’t even think about heading to a bar to drown your sorrows with a cocktail, and a steak. In the America of tomorrow, that will be banned too.”

Of course, her only reason for adopting this position now is that she will oppose literally anything President Trump does.
Last year AOC ran for Congress on a promise of working to remove troops from Syria and elsewhere:
“Alexandria believes that we must end the “forever war” by bringing our troops home, and ending the air strikes that perpetuate the cycle of terrorism throughout the world,” her 2018 campaign website noted.
She has repeatedly criticized ‘endless war’:
The response was swift:

Two of the six separate bills would prohibit the federal government from denying welfare benefits to illegal immigrants and convicted felons. The legislation would also control the rate of yearly rent increases for housing, restructure federal poverty guidelines, and introduce a variety of new factors to determine how federal contracts will be awarded.
Perhaps even more controversial than allowing illegal immigrants to collect welfare, the legislation would seemingly establish health care, housing, and access to healthy food as government-provided rights. Unsurprisingly, Republicans have condemned the legislation.
Warren, however, isn’t backing down from her support of the proposal. “It’s going to take big, structural change to tackle poverty and inequality in the U.S., and [AOC’s] “A Just Society” is just the type of bold, comprehensive thinking we’ll need to get it done,” Warren wrote on Twitter.
