The next time you read an article or view a story on the tube concerning the “SQUAD” it may not be who you think it is. In fact, AOC along with the other three radical Dems may need to put an asterisk symbol next to that title.
Alabama congressional candidate Jessica Taylor along with three other conservative congressional candidates has formed their own version of what the mainstream media bills as the “SQUAD.” However, rather than pushing a radical agenda of government control, these four members of the “Conservative Squad” are on a mission to combat Democratic/Socialist candidates all across the fruited plain, beginning with the four most radical freshmen within the Democratic Party.
In a past interview on Fox & Friends congressional candidate Jessica Taylor had called for a new generation of conservatives to counteract the pervasive ideology of self-described socialists like New York legislator Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), along with Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar.
On Thursday Taylor appeared once again on Fox & Friends” to announce the formation of a new coalition of congressional conservative candidates ready to take their message across the country, and directly challenge the original “SQUAD.”
She introduced the new alliance dubbed the “conservative squad,” comprised of Minnesota congressional candidate Michelle Fischbach, South Carolina congressional candidate Nancy Mace, and Texas congressional candidate Beth Van Duyne.
The Alabama native and mother of three children is a businesswoman and attorney and is running for Alabama’s open 2nd District congressional seat in the 2020 election.
In a new campaign video, the Republican candidate born and raised in rural Alabama takes direct aim at the current crop of radical Democrats, especially AOC, who has become the face of the party.
Her video laments; “If you’re like me, you’re tired of radical socialists and liberal loudmouths like AOC, ‘the Squad,’ and Elizabeth Warren demonizing Alabama values and our strong support of President Trump. I’m running for Congress because Alabama needs a new generation of conservative leadership to take on these radical liberals. Alabama’s conservative values are at stake, and I will fight every single day to defend them. I’m proud to be pro-life, pro-gun, pro-wall, and pro-Trump, and I will never apologize for my beliefs.”
Taylor defines herself as a “proud conservative” ready to protect life, defend the Second Amendment and our military, and support President Trump’s efforts to drain the swamp.
Taylor said she is looking for “folks who could go toe-to-toe with people like AOC and her ‘Squad.'”
“We need somebody who can convince my generation and others that more government is not the answer. More government is the problem,” Taylor told the “Friends” hosts.
Another congressional candidate on the new and improved “SQUAD” is Michelle Fischbach, who served as the 49th Lieutenant Governor of Minnesota. Michelle is running for the 7th District seat, which is currently held by Democratic Rep. Collin Peterson.
Fischbach became the first woman in Minnesota history to serve as President of the Minnesota Senate, initially from 2011-12 and then again from 2017 to 18.
The third member of the “conservative squad” is congressional candidate Nancy Mace who is running for the 1st Congressional District, in South Carolina, and she also had a strong message for AOC and their “SQUAD.”
“This is about our future. This is the American dream. You see the Democrats, and they’ve taken a sharp left turn under the influence of the Socialist squad. You look at us and, and this is Socialism versus American values and freedom and job creation.”
Adding, “And we all understand up here today that people flourish under freedom, and 2020 next year is pivotal for our country.”
Beth Van Duyne is the fourth member and she’s running for the 24th Congressional seat, in the Lone Star State.
The group has devised a unique campaign strategy, in that they plan to raise money together that then split donations evenly four ways. They also plan to take a percentage of the funds and distribute it among Republican candidates that will take on members of the Democratic squad compromised of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, of New York; Ilhan Omar, of Minnesota; Ayanna Pressley, of Massachusetts; and Rashida Tlaib, of Michigan, in the 2020 general election.
