Nov 12, 2019

Late last month, freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez officially endorsed Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders for president. In his latest swing through Iowa, Ocasio-Cortez joined Sanders on the campaign trail, marking her first trip to the state.

During this episode of River to River, host Ben Kieffer takes you to a rally that was held on Saturday, Nov. 9 in Coralville. We hear from several attendees before and after the rally about how much Ocasio-Cortez's endorsement means. We also try to answer the question: "what makes Iowa's Bernie supporters tick?"
