If you’re even remotely involved in politics, you’ve heard of “The Squad” on Capitol Hill. Comprised of freshman Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), the four lawmakers are frequently in the spotlight for their bold progressive proposals and frequent jabs at the other side of the aisle. On Thursday morning, a new “Conservative Squad” made their debut on Fox and Friends.
Initially pitched by AL-02 congressional candidate Jessica Taylor, the Conservative Squad is made up of Taylor, MN-07 candidate Michelle Fischbach, SC-01 candidate Nancy Mace, and TX-24 candidate Beth Van Duyne. All four women appeared on Fox News this morning to launch the partnership. The website connects you to a donation page where money will be split evenly between the Conservative Squad and the eventual Republican nominees for NY-14, MA-07, MN-05, and MI-13 – yes, those are the districts that elected the progressive Squad.
.@JessicaTaylorAL, @FischbachMN7, @NancyMace, and @Bethvanduyne, also known as the @ConservativeSqd – will take on @AOC and her squad and #BeatSocialism. Join them → https://t.co/IlFY21C31g https://t.co/OP38qFQ2UK
