CNN reported today on the new contender to AOC’s reelection: Michelle Caruso-Cabrera.
“I am the daughter and granddaughter of working class Italian and Cuban immigrants,” Caruso-Cabrera said in a statement to CNBC. “I am so lucky to have had such a wonderful career and I want everybody to have the opportunity that I’ve had. That’s why I’m running.”
Caruso-Cabrera would run as a Democrat to the right of Ocasio-Cortez, who has labeled herself a “democratic socialist” and supports Sen. Bernie Sanders in the presidential primary.
In Caruso-Cabrera’s book, “You Know I’m Right: More Prosperity, Less Government,” Caruso-Cabrera unveiled her vision of limited government and explained why Ronald Reagan was her favorite president. (The forward to the book was written by Larry Kudlow, President Trump’s National Economic Council director.) She serves as a member of the board of directors for financial services firm Beneficient.
