Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Sunday that a bid for the presidency by former Vice President Joe Biden would be going backward.

Ocasio-Cortez made the comments during an interview with the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery,” Fox News reported.

The congresswoman said that she would support whoever won the nomination, but added that the idea of a Biden for 2020 campaign did not “animate” her.

“I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the good old days with Obama, with Obama’s vice president. There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward.”

Ocasio-Cortez said other candidates in the running have caught her attention.

“I haven’t endorsed anybody, but I’m very supportive of Bernie,” she said.

“I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is … truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational,” she added.
