Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said she’s never met former Vice President Joe Biden, nor has the Democratic presidential frontrunner’s campaign reached out to the New York lawmaker for advice.

A Biden-Ocasio-Cortez rally could happen in the future, but there is a lot of fence-mending that needs to happen before such an event transpires, Ocasio-Cortez said in a New York Times interview published Monday. The progressive lawmaker intends to pressure Biden on several issues.

“I have not talked to the vice president,” Ocasio-Cortez told TheNYT before suggesting that a potential rally with the former vice president is not impossible. (RELATED: Bernie Sanders Drops Out Of Democratic Presidential Race)

Ocasio-Cortez said she recognizes the importance of defeating President Donald Trump in November, but still intends on needling Biden until he lists toward some of the policies that made Sen. Bernie Sanders, a self-avowed socialist, a household name.
