WASHINGTON — Rep. Tom Suozzi, the second-term Democrat from Glen Cove, won a coveted seat on the influential House Ways and Means Committee, Democratic leadership said late Wednesday as it passed over Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of the Bronx.

The pro-business centrist Suozzi will fill the vacancy left by former Rep. Joseph Crowley of Queens despite a campaign behind left-leaning Ocasio-Cortez, who sought the post after ousting Crowley in a primary last year and then winning in November.

The appointment puts Suozzi on a powerful committee that will be central to the Democratic agenda that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has unveiled: taxes, trade and health care, as well as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

Suozzi expressed gratitude to the leadership for selecting him and in a statement vowed “to fight for the national issues voters and American families are concerned about — increasing wages, improving retirement security and reducing healthcare and prescription drug costs.”
