During an interview with CNN broadcast on Thursday’s “OutFront,” former DNC Chair Ed Rendell stated that “the 2020 election went from a slam dunk for Democrats to something where we’re going to have trouble” because President Trump will make the party moving left, “which I don’t think is real,” into an issue. He also stated that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) doesn’t speak for the party.
Rendell said, “I think, all of a sudden, the 2020 election went from a slam dunk for Democrats to something where we’re going to have trouble beating this guy. Because he’s going to make Democratic Socialism — swing to the left, which I don’t think is real, but he’s going to make it into the issue.”
He added, “AOC does not speak for the Democratic Party.”
