(NewsReady.com) – Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show that some of President Donald Trump’s financial backers are also supporting a congressional candidate – a Democratic Party one. This might seem surprising at first, but there’s actually a good reason for it.
Michelle Caruso-Cabrera is running against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) in New York’s 14th Congressional District. AOC is deeply unpopular with the administration, both with ordinary Republicans and even with swathes of her own party. Caruso-Cabrera would be a much better choice. As a pro-business moderate, she’s openly critical of AOC’s extreme politics and unreliable voting record.
.@AOC why were you the only Democrat to vote against
75 billion against hospitals
25 billion against Corona Virus testing
100 billions of paychecks that business owners said were helpful?

Trump donors who’ve also supported Caruso-Cabrera include broadcaster Stanley Hubbard and venture capitalists Darren Blanton and Walter Buckley.
Businesses and investors at large lost patience with AOC after she blocked Amazon from setting up a corporate headquarters in her district. That would’ve created thousands of jobs, especially in a time where jobs are much-needed. Caruso-Cabrera, a former business journalist, is much more sensible on the economy and opposes higher taxes.
