I’m sorry, but if the Dems vote for the challenger against AOC, they deserve everything they’re going to get. AOC may not be perfect, but her opponent…
Caruso-Cabrera is the author of the 2010 book, You Know I'm Right: More Prosperity, Less Government. The book has a foreword by Larry Kudlow, President Donald Trump's National Economic Council director. The book calls for "fiscal conservatism, limited government and personal responsibility."
2020 House campaign
Caruso-Cabrera filed official paperwork on February 10, 2020, challenging freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the Democratic primary for New York's 14th congressional district, which covers portions of The Bronx and Queens. Caruso-Cabrera was endorsed by the United States Chamber of Commerce, a traditionally conservative lobbying group that supports business-related causes. On April 8, 2020, it was reported that Caruso-Cabrera's campaign had raised $1 million. It was reported that Caruso-Cabrera was a registered Republican until just a few years before 2020, and that she authored a book in 2010, "You Know I’m Right: More Prosperity, Less Government," which advocated for an end to Medicare and Social Security. It was also reported that over four dozen finance industry professionals, including private equity executives and investment bankers, have made early donations to Caruso-Cabrera.
Caruso-Cabrera moved to Sunnyside, Queens less than a year before running for the congressional seat there. She previously lived in Trump Tower in Manhattan for several years. She was born in New Hampshire.
Was a Republican, and then moved to this district and switched parties just to challenge AOC? Check. Lived in fucking TRUMP TOWER for years? Check. Is a Republican in all but name? Yep.
