DescriptionRep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., strongly implied Thursday in her first sit-down interview with Fox News that Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., lost this week's Michigan primary because of voter suppression.

"Well, I think one thing that isn't being talked about is the rampant voter suppression in this country," Ocasio-Cortez said.
