Michelle Cabrera Is a Republican living in Trump Tower for the last 20 years, now she wants to represent us ? Really. Please tell her to run in her own district as a Republican.

Carbie Barbie

This is exactly the kind of corporate democrat that lost the working class to the republicans.


There are going to be 4 people on the ballot. This person lived in Trump Tower and was a registered Republican before switching to our party. She’s not from Sunnyside, she just transplanted here a few months ago to run against AOC. My vote is going to be for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (again).


Wheres is Sunnyside Post interview with Ocasio- Cortez? This is one-sided? It feels like you supporting this woman, who is basically a Republican, and just moved to Sunnyside recently ?

Pat McCoon

What about an interview with Antoine Tucker? He’s also running against AOC!

Cant wait

Please please debate ocasio-cortez and expose her for the socialist she really is. because she has never had anybody challenge her. out from her few hissy fits in congress that pelosi no longer allows her to have


From Wikipedia: “Caruso-Cabrera was endorsed by the United States Chamber of Commerce, a traditionally conservative lobbying group that supports business-related causes. It was reported that Caruso-Cabrera was a registered Republican until just a few years before 2020, and that she authored a book in 2010, “You Know I’m Right: More Prosperity, Less Government,” which advocated for an end to Medicare and Social Security. It was also reported that over four dozen finance industry professionals, including private equity executives and investment bankers, have made early donations to Caruso-Cabrera”
