Wa Ex: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez might not be given a time slot to speak at the Democratic National Convention later in August.
“I don’t think so,” Democratic strategist and former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell told Politico when asked if Ocasio-Cortez will speak at the convention. “I think Bernie and Warren will speak, and they’ll represent the progressive wing of the party very ably.”
“If you picked AOC, why wouldn’t you pick Katie Porter, or why wouldn’t you pick Madeleine Dean or Mary Gay Scanlon?”
The list of speakers is expected to be announced during the second week of August, according to the New York Post.
The progressive wing of the Democratic Party that Ocasio-Cortez represents is expected to receive attention at the convention in the form of Sen. Bernie Sanders, who ran for president against Joe Biden but dropped out of the race in early April. more here
