Maybe it's not fair for the media to compare her to socialist firebrand Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but that's exactly what's happening to 26-year-old conservative Latina Catalina Lauf from Woodstock, Illinois.
The media is drawing a line between Lauf and the socialist media darling but, unlike AOC, Catalina loves America and the opportunities this nation provides.
She announced last week that she is running for Congress to take on the far-left.
Lauf, who gave an interview to The Daily Wire about her candidacy, announced her run last week in a campaign ad that took aim at the identity politics pushed by media and the Democratic Party.
"My father is a small business owner who worked hard all of his life providing for his family," Lauf says in the video. "My mother is a legal immigrant from Guatemala who worked hard to escape poverty, corruption, and war to find freedom and opportunity here in the United States of America."
In her first lengthy interview with a media publication, Lauf told The Daily Wire about her sincere desire to make a real difference in the nation's capital and to fight back against far-left members of Congress who are trying to destroy the Constitution and trying to turn America into a socialist nation.
