In an unsurprising turn of events, former President Barack Obama has endorsed three candidates with deep ties to the Democratic Socialists of America. In his second round of endorsements, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Andrew Gillum have been added.
Today, I’m proud to endorse even more Democratic candidates who aren’t just running against something, but for something—to expand opportunity for all of us and to restore dignity, honor, and compassion to public service. They deserve your vote: pic.twitter.com/NO5jnhX3XD

Ocasio-Cortez is running to replace Democrat Rep. Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th Congressional District, and Andrew Gillum is running against Rep. Ron DeSantis for Governor in Florida.
In his first round of endorsements, Obama also included Stacey Abrams, the Democrat nominee for Governor in Georgia.
Both Ocasio-Cortez have received support from the far-left Democratic Socialists of America, while Abrams keynoted a conference held by the socialist organization in 2011.
So after eight years of Democrats opining about how Obama isn’t a socialist, he is choosing to fully embrace candidates with strong ties to hard-core socialists. Ocasio-Cortez goes so far to describe herself a socialist.
While Ocasio-Cortez may be the only one embracing the label, there is little difference between the three on policy positions. Both Ocasio-Cortez and Gillum support abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), while Abrams refuses to answer definitively, despite spouting harsh anti-ICE talking points.
All three candidates also support socialist solutions when it comes to issues like healthcare, going further than Obama ever dreamed of doing in office.
The latest polling in Florida shows that Gillum is leading, while Abrams is neck and neck with her Republican opponent. Ocasio-Cortez is in a dark blue district where it will take a miracle for a Republican to beat her in a General Election.
But the polling both Florida and Georgia shouldn’t be taken as gospel. President Trump outperformed most polls in both states; and with his continued economic success those within his party will likely outperform.
President Donald Trump has made his support for Rep. Ron DeSantis well known, visiting the state at the end of July for one of his famous campaign rallies.
The DeSantis campaign decries Obama’s recent round of endorsement, attacking the underlying message. Florida State Rep. and Puerto Rican Outreach Chairman for the DeSantis campaign, Bob Cortes told Big League Politics:
“We continue to see the underlying message being portrayed by these recent endorsements. What they have in common is socialist policies that have failed in places like New York, Illinois and California. They all want Florida to be like Venezuela and push us into debt like Puerto Rico. We must continue to fight this as the future of Florida depends on it.”
TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
