Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was spotted with Bernie Sanders and his campaign manager Faiz Shakir in Burlington, Vermont today. It’s unclear what the two discussed, though it could be related their respective plans to decommodify housing, a 2020 endorsement, or some other policy goal.
An image of the three was posted to Twitter by a user named Vert DuFerk.
As most of you know, I've been in #Bernie2020's corner since I moved to VT in 2001. I'm in WA now, but I still have friends in VT. One of them just posted these pics, taken at a cafe in Burlington this morning.

This isn’t the first time Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders have had high-profile meeting. The two met earlier in 2019 to announce their plan to cap credit card interest rates at 15%. The two also worked together to pressure Congress to declare climate change a national emergency.
Ocasio-Cortez met with Warren in 2019, which prompted The Daily Wire falsely declare the Ocasio-Cortez was endorsing Warren. Ocasio-Cortez has also teamed up with Kamala Harris as the two released a climate equity plan.
