Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) officially nominated Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to be the Democratic presidential nominee on Tuesday, a largely procedural act of progressive solidarity shared between the party’s two most recognizable figures on the left.
Immediately following her nomination of the Vermont senator, some confusion broke out about convention logistics, which Ocasio-Cortez sought to clarify to her massive Twitter audience.
“If you were confused, no worries! Convention rules require roll call & nominations for every candidate that passes the delegate threshold. I was asked to 2nd the nom for Sen. Sanders for roll call,” she tweeted. “I extend my deepest congratulations to @JoeBiden – let’s go win in November.”
