The campaign spokesman for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has left his post, a decision that was revealed when a reporter contacted him on Sunday for a comment, the New York Post reports.

Corbin Trent, the congresswoman’s former communications director, referred questions about his departure to Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign manager, Rebecca Rodriguez, who declined to comment to the Post. Trent, the co-founder of the progressive political action committee Justice Democrats, has removed all references to the New York Democrat from his Twitter biography. Trent left Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional office to work on her re-election campaign last August, at about the same time that her chief of staff departed to work at a climate-focused nonprofit.

Trent declined to comment on his departure to the Post, but did say he is now working as a paid staffer for Sen. Bernie Sanders’, I-Vt., presidential campaign. He previously worked on Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign, which Ocasio-Cortez also worked for as an organizer.

The congresswoman is on track to win reelection after her top primary challenger, Bronx City Councilman Fernando Cabrera, dropped out to run for borough president instead, according to the Post. Ocasio-Cortez still faces former CNBC journalist Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, who Councilman Cabrera endorsed, and almost a dozen other challengers. Her district, which includes parts of the Bronx and Queens, has not elected a Republican to congress in decades.
