Pressley & # 39; s approval is a blessing for Elizabeth Warren, who has risen in the polls
Pressley & # 39; s approval is a blessing for Warren – she assured a young, upcoming Congress member who is a member of her home state delegation. Pressley is the first black woman from Massachusetts elected to Congress.
& # 39; You've all heard about the senator's plans – but here's the thing, & # 39; said Pressley in an approval video she posted on Twitter. & # 39; Her plans are about power: who has it, who refuses to let it go and who earns more from it. & # 39;
& # 39; I have seen Elizabeth in small church cellars and in packed gyms, & # 39; Pressley noted. & # 39; And she is consistent. She never loses sight of people. & # 39;
Warren has risen in the polls and was a target of its democratic rivals in the last presidential debate.
Pressley told The Associated Press on Monday that she was approached by the Warren, Sanders and Joe Biden campaigns for her approval.
President Donald Trump has the & # 39; team & # 39; made a target of his political anger and tweeted that the four women – all of whom were born in the United States except Omar – must go back to where they came from & # 39 ;.
Sanders has already taken advantage of his blessings from the rest of the & # 39; squadron & # 39; members and has held prominent rally with each of them.
The Senator from Vermont suffered a heart attack on October 1, causing him to stay off the campaign track until the October 15 democratic debate in Westerville, Ohio.
During the debate, the news broke that Ocasio-Cortez and Omar Sanders endorsed – giving him a much needed enthusiasm.

Ocasio-Cortez praised Sanders last month during the rally in Queensbridge Park in New York.
& # 39; Only when I heard of a man named Bernie Sanders, did I begin to question and acknowledge my inherent value as a human being that deserves, health care, housing, education and a living wage & # 39 ;, Ocasio- Cortez told the roaring crowd, who estimated Sanders camp to be 25,872.

She also explained why she decided to support Sanders and not the politically comparable Elizabeth Warren, and said that both she and Sanders were D.C. survivors and had an immigrant story.
"For a long time, Bernie was underestimated, his ideals were not taken seriously by the established order because he refused to stand in line," she told a roaring crowd at the University of Minnesota, close to her convention district. & # 39; And no one knows what he went through but someone like me who survives in Washington. & # 39;
