Big money is pouring in to make sure that Caruso-Cabrera finishes the job and removes AOC from office indefinitely.
The New York Post is reporting that donations came in from the likes of co-founder of Home Depot Ken Langone, who — along with his wife — pitched in a total $11,200.
According to the report, both the CEO’s from Goldman Sachs and the equity firm Blackstone donated the one-time maximum of $2,800.
The cash haul comes off the heels of a pro-President Donald Trump super PAC, funded by Caruso-Cabrera’s husband Stephen Dizard, a well-known Republican Party donor.
He has a proven track record of donating to the campaigns of winning women — including current lawmakers Rep. Elise Stefanik, Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn, and Arizona Sen. Martha McSally.
Dizard is hoping the trend can continue in next Tuesday’s election.
FEC data show that he’s donated more than $400,000 to Republican campaigns since 1990.
Ocasio-Cortez is still outpacing Caruso-Cabrera in the dollar amount of campaign donations, but speculation has swirled around the young and vocal congresswoman after she recently skipped a New York primary debate …
The move may perhaps mean that AOC is feeling a little confident ahead of the election.
Tuesday, Caruso-Cabrera will be hoping she has something to say about that.
