AOC Scores Spot On House Oversight Committee

  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) confirmed she locked down the Democrats’ No. 2 slot on the House Oversight Committee Monday evening.
  • She will serve as second in command for House Democrats under ranking member Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), with whom she has a close working relationship.
  • This means that she will likely play a more pronounced role in helping to craft the party’s strategy and messaging as it navigates the GOP’s use of the panel to investigate President Joe Biden and his family.
