Alabama Congressional Candidate Vows to Form Conservative ‘Squad’ and Take On AOC

On Monday, Alabama congressional candidate Jessica Taylor launched her 2020 campaign with an ad promising to take on socialist Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of her “Squad.”

‘I’m tired of arrogant socialists like AOC’

“Like you, I’m tired of arrogant socialists like AOC — who has never even run a lemonade stand — telling us how we should live in Alabama, and that more government is the answer,” Taylor said in the video.

“I’m a steadfast conservative, a mom, a patriot, a business owner, and job creator, and even though it might trigger a few liberals, I’ll fight to protect life, the Second Amendment, our borders, our military, our families, and President Trump from socialists in the swamp,” Taylor continued. “And I won’t apologize for it.”

Taylor is running for Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District. The current office holder, Republican Martha Roby, has had the seat since 2010 and announced over the summer that this would be her last term.

Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District strongly leans Republican, and Taylor joins an already crowded GOP primary field.

Taylor’s video went viral quickly, and she was even invited on  “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday to discuss her campaign and agenda.

‘I’m pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, pro-wall, and pro-Trump’

“I think now is the right time for me to fill this slot because we need a new generation of conservatives, folks who can go toe-to-toe with people like AOC and her squad who believe socialism is a legitimate ideology that our nation should embrace,” Taylor told Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade. “I’m pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, pro-wall, and pro-Trump.”

The “Squad” refers to Ocasio-Cortez, who calls herself a “socialist,” along with three other far Left congresswomen: Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley.

A Conservative ‘Squad?’

“We need somebody who can convince my generation and others that more government is not the answer, more government is the problem,” Taylor said. “This country was founded on small business and private citizens who can make a difference. More government is not what we need.”

Taylor vows to form her own “Squad” that will promote conservative values and pushback on creeping socialism.

“We have got to get back to our fundamental values – our freedom is at stake here,” Taylor told Fox News. “So we’re going to be talking about that on the campaign trail. We’d love for folks to follow us.”

How many will? Time will tell. But a conservative “squad” in Washington is long overdue.
