Why it matters: It's a welcome boost for Sanders as polls indicate his popularity has slipped.
- Tlaib is the third member of the quartet of freshman Democratic lawmakers known as The Squad to endorse Sanders, after Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) did so earlier this month.
The big picture: Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) has yet to endorse anyone. She's waiting to see what happens in the Democratic primary race and "would be willing to endorse anyone" against President Trump, the Boston Globe reports.
