Since the day she was elected, far-left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has ruffled all sorts of feathers.
AOC has rubbed so many people the wrong way, even members of the Democratic Party have had enough of her.
Now there’s a new twist in the on-going AOC saga. This time it involves a top Democrat, Trump supporters, and a boat load of cash to take her down.
According to The New York Post, top donors to President Trump are also pumping thousands of dollars into the campaign kitty of the Democratic primary rival to Ocasio-Cortez — Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, campaign records show.
Caruso-Cabrera is a former veteran business journalist and CNBC anchor… and she happens to be a DEMOCRAT!
Caruso-Cabrera is running as a moderate, pro-business Democratic alternative to Ocasio-Cortez. And her campaign is gaining some serious steam, even amongst loyal Trump supporters desperate to see AOC go.
According to the report, among the top Trump supporters supporting Caruso-Cabrera include…
Broadcaster Stanley Hubbard, who contributed $175,000 to the pro-Trump Great America PAC, contributed the maximum $5,600 to Caruso-Cabrera, according to opensecrets.org and filings with the Federal Elections Commission.
“Cowboy venture capitalist” Darren Blanton, who has given $41,000 to pro-Trump campaign entities, also donated $5,600 to Caruso-Cabrera.
Financier Nelson Patz, who held a lavish fundraiser at his Palm Beach home earlier this year to help raise $10 million for Trump and the RNC, kicked in $5,600 to Caruso-Cabrera’s campaign.
Venture capitalist Walter Buckley, who donated $1 million to the pro-Trump’s Rebuild America Now Super PAC and $125,000 to Trump Victory fund, also chipped in $5,600 to AOC’s chief primary opponent.
AOC has been at odds with Wall Street and big business — symbolized by her opposition to a scuttled plan for Amazon to open a campus headquarters along the Queens waterfront.
Caruso-Cabrera supported the aborted Amazon headquarters and criticized AOC for helping scuttle it.
Asked about the donations from Trump backers, Caruso-Cabrera spokesman Hank Sheinkopf said, “AOC’s divisive behavior has created the national coalition supporting MCC. AOC continues to work against our presumptive Presidential nominee Joe Biden. AOC prefers to be with Donald Trump 13.7 percent of the time.”
The primary election is June 23 but early voting begins this Saturday. Keep an eye out for Caruso-Cabrera. We know AOC is!
