RUSH EXCERPT
TAPPER: "If speaker Pelosi runs again as she indicated she will if the democrats win the house, will you support her?
OCASIO-CORTEZ: "Well, again I want to make sure that we win the house.  I do believe that we will, but it's critically important that we support democrats in tight swing races.  Making sure that not only all of them come back but that we grow our majority.  I believe that we have to see those races as they come.  See what candidates are there.  I am committed to making sure that we have the most progressive candidate there, but if speaker Pelosi is that most progressive candidate there, then I will be supporting her."
