GOP Congresswoman-elect plans to counter AOC’s squad with anti-socialism squad called “The Force”

Florida GOP Congresswoman-elect Maria Elvira Salazar wants to counter AOC’s “squad”of progressives with a Republican squad called “the force.”

Salazar told NBC News “I want to create a force within my freshman class that will have to be reckoned with. A force of reason, a force for freedom, a force for democracy.”

“When I hear this democratic socialism that is being presented within the Democratic Party, I can only tell you that only brings misery, oppression and exile. And how do I know? Because I have lived it and I have covered it,” she explained.

Salazar, a charismatic Cuban American and former TV journalist, defeated Democrat Donna Shalala to flip a blue seat red earlier this month.

Per The Hill “A total of eight incoming congressmen and women identify as a person of color or a minority, according to NBC News.

“The Force,” which has been embraced by newcomers like Nicole Malliotakis (R) and Victoria Spartz (R), seeks to dismantle what it views as democratic socialism.”
