If one does not know what is happening in the 2020 Presidential race, then perhaps it is best for that person to remain under whatever rock has been providing the shelter from the storm!
Sometimes you need to scratch beneath the surface to see what is actually stirring the passions of the electorate. So today’s piece is about a couple Congressional races worth following; the opposition candidates are both strong Cuban American women. They are attempting to unseat democratic icons; one old, one new.
In Miami, 79 year old Donna Shalala holds the 27th Congressional District seat. You may recall Ms Shalala was, among other things, Bill Clinton’s Secretary of Health and Human Services. She is the quintessential swamp liberal. She represents a district that is more than 70% Hispanic, and the majority of those Hispanics are of Cuban origin.
Maria Salazar is running to unseat Ms. Shalala. She should be a shoe-in. Alas, unseating an incumbent democrat with big swamp money behind her is not easy. Maria Salazar is up to the task. To learn more about her, visit her website by clicking here. She is the real deal, and deserves your support.
Slightly north of Miami there is a race for the seat in the14th Congressional District in NYC. This is a district that is located mostly in the Bronx, with a portion of representation in the Queens. The seat is held by first term Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I have already written enough about this living, breathing, walking disaster. There are 13 people running to unseat her. One candidate stands out. She is Michelle Caruso-Cabrera. You can acquaint yourself with her credentials by clicking here.
These ladies have much in common. They:
–are self made,
–had successful careers in television journalism,
–believe in capitalism and free enterprise,
–care deeply about the districts they hope to represent,
–have parents or grandparents that came from Cuba and fled the oppressive, totalitarian socialist hell-hole it had become.
I hope the constituents in Florida’s 27th and those in New York’s 14th districts will take the time to differentiate between, on one hand, an old, entitled candidate of the swamp (Ms. Shalala) and on the other, the upstart, power hungry, blindly ambitious socialist, AOC. Candidates Salazar and Caruso-Cabrera are great aspiring public servants.
On a lighter note, this morning on CNBC, former Vice President Joe Biden announced that he was absolutely “prepared to beat Joe Biden.” I kid you not. Click here for your morning amusement.
Onward and Upward, folks
