Rep Ocasio-Cortez Rallies Democrats Over Supreme Court Vacancy

New York Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied Democrats to support former Vice President Joe Biden for president.

Ocasio-Cortez’s urgency was rooted in the sudden death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

In addition to tweets, Ocasio-Cortez continued with her urgent call for action in a 40 minute Instagram video.

During her comments, she tried to motivate the Democrat base by saying, “Let this moment radicalize you.”

She added Ginsburg’s death crystallizes the importance of the upcoming election and called it “… the fight for our lives.”

Ocasio-Cortez called the Supreme Court vacancy “earth-shattering” because President Trump can replace a liberal seat on the court and promoted Biden saying, “We need to focus on voting for Joe Biden. I don’t care if you like him or not.”

President Trump promised to move to promptly fill the vacancy.

In a statement, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the Senate will have a floor vote on the vacancy saying, “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”

Ginsburg’s sudden death sets up a huge political battle to fill the Supreme Court vacancy and it will have a major impact on the November elections.
