McConnell vows vote on Supreme Court nominee before midterm electionsAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez celebrates with supporters at a victory party in the Bronx after upsetting incumbent Democratic Representative Joseph Crowley on Tuesday. New York Democratic candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declined to support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for speaker if Democrats take back control of the House. “I think it’s far too early to make those kinds of commitments right now,” Ocasio-Cortez said Wednesday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” adding that Democrats “need to just focus on winning in November first and then we’ll have the conversation about our leadership.” Ocasio-Cortez delivered a major upset in Tuesday’s primary over incumbent Rep.
