Who's Been Sitting In Pelosi's Chair? Democrat Ocasio-Cortez

Excerpt:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In another first for rookie congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the liberal Democrat from New York on Friday became the youngest woman to preside over the U.S. House of Representatives.

Sitting in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s chair as part of a routine rotation of House members, Ocasio-Cortez took her turn with the gavel and ran the chamber for about an hour. The duty is shared day-to-day by members of the House majority, currently the Democrats.

In the event, Ocasio-Cortez did not have a great deal to do. She presided over “special orders,” which are generally short speeches by House members at the end of the day’s legislative business, often on issues of concern in their districts.

Ocasio-Cortez, 29, called on members as they rose to speak, once or twice stumbling over their states of origin. “For what purpose does the gentleman from Ohio - um, from Illinois, excuse me, seek recognition?” she said as Representative Sean Casten, a fellow freshman Democrat, took the floor.

“That was my first time presiding. And it’s exciting. It’s certainly a view. I wish we could, I wish we were allowed to take photos,” she told reporters after the session.
