In her nominating speech for Sen. Bernie Sanders at the Democratic National Convention, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lauded the progressive movement, which she said strives "to recognize and repair the wounds of racial injustice, colonization, misogyny and homophobia."

The big picture: AOC ticked through several of the crises facing the country right now and really laid bare what progressives are fighting for.

  • "The mass people's movement," she said, will "propose and build reimagined systems of immigration and foreign policy that turn away from the violence and xenophobia of our past."

Why it matters: Though she only had 60 seconds to address the convention, she packed a lot in her remarks that other speakers didn't say as explicitly.

What they're doing: "A movement that realizes the unsustainable brutality of an economy that rewards explosive inequalities of wealth for the few at the expense of long-term stability for the many," she said.

  • Sanders "organized a historic grassroots campaign to reclaim our Democracy in a time when millions of people in the United States are looking for deep systemic solutions to our crises," AOC added.

With President Trump planning to nominate his third Supreme Court justice nominee this week, key Republican senators are indicating their stance on replacing the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with less than 50 days until Election Day.

The state of play: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) has vowed that "Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate." Two GOP senators — Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) — have said they oppose holding a vote before the election, meaning that two more defections would force McConnell to delay until at least the lame-duck session of Congress.
