New Hampshire congressional candidate Karoline Leavitt would be AOC’s worst nightmare


Karoline Leavitt would be AOC’s worst nightmare in Congress.

The Republicans have been looking for someone like U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. — not in the sense of being a ditzy diva, obviously, but for somebody who can deliver the message and not look like another boring politician, if you get my drift.

A number of House Republicans, male as well as female, would love to be anointed as the anti-AOC. Even U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., has mused publicly about the prospect, as ridiculous as it is.

Now comes Karoline Leavitt, the Republican nominee in the First Congressional District of New Hampshire, and what did the national GOP try to do to her in the primary?

They spent $5 million to slime her — $5 million! On behalf of Matt Mowers, a career swamp creature from New Jersey who worked for, among others, former  White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and is married to a CNN producer. Can you feel the Make America Great Again excitement?

No; neither could the voters. Leavitt crushed Mowers. Former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown’s wife, former Channel 5 newsreader Gail Huff, finished a distant third.

How would a Congresswoman Karoline drive AOC crazy? Well, for starters, Leavitt is 25 years old and AOC is 32. Karoline would be the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.

Karoline comes from a more authentic working-class background than “Sandy from Westchester.” Neither of her parents went to college, which is something AOC can’t say, much as she’d like to.

On Friday afternoon, Karoline Leavitt was campaigning in Portsmouth, N.H., where I was doing my radio show from Toyota of Portsmouth. She stopped by and suddenly everyone was crowding around her, wanting to shake her hand or take a selfie with her.

Suddenly it wasn’t my remote anymore, it was Karoline’s.
