Former President Barack Obama on Monday endorsed dozens of Democrats in races across the country, including liberal darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in her New York House race.
Obama had left Ocasio-Cortez off his initial round of 81 endorsements over the summer, prompting speculation over why the ex-president had seemingly snubbed the Democratic socialist candidate who defeated House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., in the primary and whose big-government views align with those of Sen. Bernie Sanders. However, on Monday, Obama included her name on the list of 260 endorsed candidates for governor, U.S. Senate, U.S. House and state legislatures.

Barry just backing the sure-winners so as not to ruin his batting average. No loyalty.
There’s the kiss of death
An Obama endorsement of Beto in Texas would help Cruz.
He backs a full-fledged socialist. No too bright, Barry.
I remember when he backed and campaigned for a white-black Democrat in MD where Dems can’t lose.
Obama the guy Trump threw out with all the useless Regulations ?
Very bright Barry. If you and Michelle get divorced down the line. He’s successful because he didn’t go the way of Tiger and B.J.
He backs her because she’s a minority whereas Beto isn’t.
She’s got a set of heavy duty chompers on her. I’ll give her that.
Crowley's still on the ballot, as the candidate of some minor party. The greedy barmaid with the fake life narrative spent a lot of time campaigning throughout the country instead of in her district. Thanks seanmerc.
While I'm on topic, I don't believe there is such a thing as a liberal anymore - they are all socialists and that's what I call them nowadays.
Obama doesnt like white guys.
Remember all the brain dead libs a few years ago parroting “Obama’s not a socialist!”?
This tells me that Cruz will retain his seat.
Why isn’t the traitor in prison?
It’s a calculated snub. He’s been asked not to endorse. Obama is the kiss of death in Texas. Who does FoxNews think they’re fooling?
Sorry. You misspelled Fox News. It’s Faux News now.
