A certificate from Ocazio-Cortez, which has quickly established itself as a progressive icon, currently in his first term in Congress and has a massive following in social media, can give impetus to any candidate.
Newman is running a progressive platform, including support for the Green New Deal and Medicare for All, supported by the Democrats of Justice, a progressive organization, which supported Ocasio-Cortez when she successfully tackled the primary challenge to Democratic MPs by Joe Zhou Crowley.
In a statement, Lipinski stated that "Maria Newman's approval of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez" made it crystal clear that Ms. Newman was an exceptional candidate who was completely up to date with voters in the Third District of Illinois who did not want to be represented by a fifth member of the "squad," a reference to Ocasio-Cortez also as progressive Democrats Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tleib of Michigan and Ayana Presley of Massachusetts.
"The Democratic Party – and our country – cannot be allow the Left Tea Party obstruction when rubbing we should focus on winning the next election and adopting policies that will really help working families and everyone struggling in America today, "the congressman said.
Newman said in a statement that she was "thrilled to receive the approval", saying that "Okazio-Cortez's unwavering commitment to the fight for social, climate and economic justice is a real inspiration".
Alexandra Rojas, executive director of the Democrats for Justice, said in a statement, "We are so proud that Marie Newman is the first justice Democrat on this cycle to receive approval from Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez."
