Sanders and new Democratic star Ocasio-Cortez wade into GOP-heavy Kansas

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Bernie Sanders

"What's really exciting about seeing her out there today in Kansas is that it kind of helps build on the existing grassroots energy and passion that there was in the state for Thompson, and I think that's only going to yield a stronger performance in the August 7 primary", said Sroka, whose organization has endorsed Ocasio-Cortez and Thompson. "It was when we were deciding who we wanted to be as a country".

CBS News' "Face the Nation" moderator Margaret Brennan sat down with Vermont's Sanders, a well-known face in Democratic politics, and New York's casio-Cortez, a rising star in the party after she defeated incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley, as they stumped in the Sunflower State.

This political odd couple began their trip in Wichita campaigning for Democrat James Thompson, a civil rights lawyer running in Kansas' 4th District.

Leading candidates in the Democratic primary for governor have said their party must rebuild its brand in rural, heavily GOP areas. "If we become more divided, then we can do that as Democrats, we are just not going to win". Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) proved that their agenda demanding economic justice has far-reaching appeal as they addressed packed and enthusiastic two events in Kansas.
