VIDEO: Joe Lieberman weighs in on Ocasio-Cortez and future of Democratic party
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said Thursday he’s hopeful Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is not the future of the Democratic Party, arguing it must remain closer to the political center in order to have broader appeal.
“With all respect, I certainly hope she’s not the future and I don’t believe she is,” Lieberman said told host Neil Cavuto on Fox Business News.
The article goes on to state the following:
“She’s gotten a lot of attention because she’s different. She’s controversial,” Lieberman continued. “But if you look at the majority of new Democrats in the House, they tend to be, I say, center-left, if they are not left-left. And that is because they had to be center-left to win some of those competitive swing districts that they took from Republicans.”
Joe Lieberman, who truly has his finger on the pulse of the Democratic Party, says that @AOC is “not the future” of the party and is only getting “a lot of attention because she is different and controversial.”
He also tells Fox Biz he has “hope” that party will move to center. pic.twitter.com/YgQjuBEkFz
