Former CNBC correspondent Michelle Caruso-Cabrera launched her campaign in the Democratic primary to challenge Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) in the 14th District.

AOC faces off against about twelve challengers. The primary will take place on June 23.

We all know AOC is a socialist. No, she’s not a Democratic Socialist. Full-blown socialist.

Caruso-Cabrera is a Democrat, but she has conservative fiscal views. She published a book titled You Know I’m Right: More Prosperity, Less Government. Fox News has a snippet:

“The core principles of Reaganomics rejuvenated an unstable economy and the Clinton-era policy successes took power away from the federal government and put money in our pockets,” it reads.

“We must return to the fundamentals of American politics: small, not big, government. Less spending, not more. The first step is to more narrowly define the parties’ platforms away from needlessly divisive social issues and refocus the political discussion on that really matters: economic policies that create jobs.”

Her website boasts that she has immigrant parents like AOC:

Michelle Caruso-Cabrera is the granddaughter of working-class Italian and Cuban immigrants. When Michelle’s grandparents first arrived in America, they worked arduous overnight shifts and took dangerous jobs in the meatpacking industry to pay the rent and feed their children.

Watching her grandparents and her parents work long hours is how Michelle learned about achieving the American dream.

Michelle graduated second in her class and was editor of the high school paper, “The Purple Panther.” She attended Wellesley College with the help of a National Merit Scholarship, and the money she earned from her first job as a waitress at Pizza Hut. She would receive tips for great service from happy customers, and use the money to help pay her tuition. In college, Michelle was elected editor of her college newspaper, “The Wellesley College News,” while also reporting for the New York Times education section.
