Obama Refuses to Endorse Ocasio-Cortez and Feinstein
On Monday, former President Barrack Obama released a list of 81 candidates that he was endorsing for the 2018 midterms. The politicians included in this list – all of which are Democrats – aren’t particularly surprising. However, there were a couple of noteworthy exclusions that have raised plenty of eyebrows since Obama released his list.
Both the socialist newcomer and rising star of the Democratic party Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as well as the long-time California Senator Diane Feinstein were not included in Obama’s list of endorsements for the 2018 midterms. Given how high-profile these two politicians are, leaving them out couldn’t possibly have been a simple oversight.
It’s likely that Ocasio-Cortez may be a little too far left for even Obama’s taste, while Sen. Feinstein has largely fallen out of favor with Democratic Party leadership. Leading California Democrats have chosen to back her primary opponent, State Sen. Kevin de León.
Obama is expected to release another list of endorsements in the future, meaning that he will have another chance to give Ocasio-Cortez and Feinstein his vote of approval should he wish to do so. For now, though, Ocasio-Cortez and Feinstein are two of the only high-profile Democrats who are on the outside looking in when it comes to the former president’s endorsement.
