Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Wednesday both endorsed Tiffany Cabán in the Democratic primary for Queens district attorney as the two Democratic presidential rivals seek to shore up support among progressives.
“Bernie spoke with Tiffany Cabán and was impressed. We had already communicated our endorsement, but per their request, we waited to roll it out until it best suited the campaign strategy. With all that said, vote for @CabanForQueens!” tweeted Faiz Shakir, Sanders’s presidential campaign manager.
The article goes on to state the following:
Besides Sanders and Warren, progressive firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has also thrown her support behind Cabán, a 31-year-old Latina career public defender.
I’m a queer Latina from a working-class family. People like us are exactly who the system is trying to keep down.
That’s why I became a public defender—and that’s why I’m running for Queens DA.

I am beyond thrilled and honored to receive an endorsement from @BernieSanders. He has dedicated his entire career to achieving economic, racial, and social justice for all.
Here in Queens, we are working toward that same goal — on June 25th, we can take one giant leap forward. pic.twitter.com/Mwl0wsALwp

I’m proud to endorse Tiffany Cabán for Queens DA in New York. @CabanForQueens will fight for working families and work to end mass incarceration. Make sure you get out and vote for Tiffany next Tuesday, June 25th. In the meantime, head to https://t.co/JrGgDWxrHh to volunteer!

Just for everyone’s general awareness:
Bernie spoke with Tiffany Cabán and was impressed. We had already communicated our endorsement, but per their request, we waited to roll it out until it best suited the campaign strategy.
With all that said, vote for @CabanForQueens!

When we endorsed @CabanForQueens back in March, many people were shocked because she was a long shot candidate and many didn’t think she was viable.
