Watch: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Leads Spanish-Only Town Hall for Sanders Campaign

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is leading a Spanish-language town hall for the 2020 Democratic presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders in Las Vegas. 

The New York Democrat delivered remarks to the crowd at the “Unidos Con Bernie Reunión Política” and was followed by a panel of Sanders staff and supporters who answered questions and discussed the Sanders campaign.

In the leadup to the event, Ocasio-Cortez expressed some hesitation due to the rustiness of her Spanish. 

“I’m nervous for this all-Spanish town hall,” she tweeted, “but I also know that the only way I’m going to improve my Spanish is by practicing it!”

Sanders regularly enjoys high favorability numbers and support from the Latin community in polls, leading New York Magazine writer Ed Kilgore on December 5 to refer to the demographic block as the senator’s “secret weapon” in the 2020 campaign.
