Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ripped late presidential bids and suggested efforts should redirected to winning state legislatures
YURI GRIPAS/Reuters Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York called out late entries into the 2020 presidential race in a tweet on Thursday. The congresswoman from New York said that rather than "setting ablaze hundreds of millions of dollars" on these late-to-the-game presidential bids, efforts instead should be redirected to "winning majorities of state legislatures across the United States." Last week former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg took steps to enter the 2020 race. On Thursday, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick announced he was joining the already-crowded group of 2020 candidates with less than 90 days to the Iowa caucuses. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York called out late entries into the 2020 presidential race in a tweet on Thursday. "Call me radical, but maybe instead of setting ablaze hundreds of millions of dollars on multiple plutocratic, long-shot, very-late presidential bids, we instead invest hundreds of millions into winning majorities of state legislatures across the United States?" Ocasio-Cortez wrote in the tweet.
