WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, long a standard bearer for progressive causes, has secured the endorsement of the newest star on the leftist stage, U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, to be the Democratic presidential candidate in 2020, a campaign source said on Tuesday.

Ocasio-Cortez plans to announce her choice on Saturday, when Sanders returns to the campaign trail with a rally in New York.
