Democratic superstar Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to back former Vice President Joe Biden’s potential presidential run over the weekend; saying the top Obama aide’s win would be “going back” while she hopes to “move forward.”

“I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the good old days with Obama, with Obama’s vice president. There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward,” she added.

BATTLEGROUND PA: Trump, Biden to Visit Pennsylvania as Election Showdown Looks Likely
President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden will visit Pennsylvania in the days ahead; touring the key battleground state as a potential general election showdown between the two looks increasingly likely.
“Like iron filings to a magnet, both will be drawn in the coming days to Pennsylvania, which was key to Trump’s victory in 2016 and would be central to almost any scenario for a Democratic victory in the 2020 presidential campaign,” reports the Los Angeles Times.
“Their trips — Biden on Saturday, Trump on Monday — elevate an emerging rivalry that has them locked in a wrestler’s grip long before Democrats even choose a nominee,” adds the article.
The President will speak with supporters at a rally in the central part of Pennsylvania, with Biden holding an event in the Democratic-stronghold of Philadelphia.
“If I’m going to be able to beat Donald Trump in 2020, it’s going to happen here,” said Biden in Pennsylvania shortly after announcing his run for the White House.
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders continues to fall behind former Vice President Joe Biden in recent polling, with new data showing the top Obama aide opening-up a massive 32 point lead over the Democratic Socialist.

“Biden has seen a little bit of a bump from his announcement, anywhere from 12 to 15 percentage points in most polls that I’ve seen,” said one pollster.
