What's Behind AOC's Attack On Mayor Pete?

Business Insider reports that Rep.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed Pete Buttigieg.

Why?

Mayor Pete criticized calls for tuition-free public college as too radical.

In an Iowa ad, he said that he wanted to "make college affordable for everybody." He said that tuition-free public college risked "turning off half the country before we even get into office." AOC did not like that.

"This is a GOP talking point used to dismantle public systems, & it's sad to see a Dem candidate adopt it." Some political analysts have concluded that AOC's attack has been bought and paid for by Pete's rival, Bernie Sanders.

AOC is a staunch supporter of Bernie Sanders.

She stands to benefit heavily if he is elected.

Sanders said he would reward AOC's loyalty with an important job in his administration.
