New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday urged Michigan voters to elect a "posse" of progressive candidates to help the democratic socialist "throw down" in Congress.
Appearing alongside Women's March co-founder Linda Sarsour and Democrat Michigan gubernatorial candidate Abdul El-Sayed, Ocasio-Cortez urged attendees of the "My Muslim Vote" rally in Dearborn, Michigan, to send ex-Democrat State Rep. Rashida Tlaib and community organizer Fayrouz Saad to Congress.
"Just fighting against hate is not good enough. We have to [inaudible] and move forward. We have to move in an affirmative direction. I can't do it alone," Ocasio-Cortez began. "Just one seat out of 435 isn't what's going to get us there."
