Ex-CNBC Star, Fierce Critic of Socialism, to Challenge AOC in Dem Primary
By Randy Hall | February 13, 2020 10:57 AM EST

Liberals in the media have cheered the far-left Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, focusing more on her celebrity status and less on her rabid socialism. Ocasio-Cortez won New York’s 14th congressional district in November of 2018 after a shock primary win over another Democrat.

While several people have expressed an interest in running against her in this year’s primary and general election, the most recent person to challenge that member of the liberal “Squad” is Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, a former anchor for the CNBC channel who is a registered Democrat and a descendant of Cuban immigrants.

According to an article posted on Tuesday by Fox News Channel reporter Sam Dorman, the challenger “has been a fierce critic of socialism and an advocate for free markets.”

Remember that for this Congressional seat, "the objective" is to win the democrat-communist primary.

Whoever wins that, wins the general election.
