Meet the new Squad.
Freshman Missouri Rep. Cori Bush on Sunday tweeted a photo of the high-profile group of progressive Democratic lawmakers, now joined by two new members.
“Squad up,” Bush captioned the shot, which saw her and fellow freshman Rep. Jamaal Bowman of New York join the four founding members, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.) and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.).
The group stood shoulder-to-shoulder, but all wore masks amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Squad has established itself as a small but influential contingent of progressive lawmakers standing in opposition to not just Republicans but also entrenched moderate Democrats.
All six, however, voted Sunday to elect California Rep. Nancy Pelosi to another stint as Speaker of the House.
