“Yesterday,” tweeted People for Bernie on Sunday morning in response to the comments, “we officially entered a new era of not listening to anything John Kasich says. The era will continue until further notice.”And Ocasio-Cortez was among those who rebuked the remarks online as she defended her fellow Squad member, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), from the insinuation that progressive House victories in key districts didn’t play a large role—as observers have pointed out—in helping deliver the White House for Biden.”John Kasich, who did not deliver Ohio to Dems, is saying folks like Omar, who did deliver Minnesota, are the problem,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in direct response to his comments. “Please don’t take these people seriously and go back to celebrating and building power.”Common Dreams reported Thursday how Omar in Minnesota—just like Rep. Rashida Tlaib in her Detroit, Michigan district—were “major factors” in helping Biden pull away from Trump in those key battleground states.In her interview with the Times, published late Saturday night, the New York Democrat—who won her reelection with nearly 70% of the vote in her district—elaborated on that dynamic.”If the party believes after 94 percent of Detroit went to Biden, after Black organizers just doubled and tripled turnout down in Georgia, after so many people organized Philadelphia, the signal from the Democratic Party is the John Kasichs won us this election?” said AOC. “I mean, I can’t even describe how dangerous that is.”
