New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined "The View" on Wednesday, to promote Sen. Bernie Sanders as a fighter for "people like us."
"What makes Sen. Sanders so distinct in this field, is that he has been fighting for working families. His platform fights for working families," she said. "But he hasn't just come to this fight. He has been fighting for these issues his entire life."
"He did this when it was least convenient. He fought for those things before I was born. He paid the highest political cost," she said. "He wants a political revolution at the ballot box."
"The largest plurality of voters consider themselves as not wanting to be a part of this labeling ... they don't feel like there's a home for them at the Republican party or Democrat party," she said. "That doesn't mean they're in the middle ... they don't want to consent to be governed."
"We want to talk about health care, we want to talk about a living wage, we want to talk about women’s rights—but he did this when it was least convenient," she said. "He was fighting for these things since before I was even born."
