Jessica Taylor, the Prattville businesswoman running for Congress in Alabama’s 2nd District, gathered members of her “conservative squad” for an appearance on the popular “Fox & Friends” morning show on Fox News Channel Thursday morning.
Upon launching her campaign in October, Taylor said she wanted to build a coalition of young conservatives to take on Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, who has famously touted her “squad” of liberal Democrats to push for progressive and socialist policies.
Taylor appeared in studio with fellow female Republican candidates recruited to be a part of her “squad,” including Michelle Fishbach of Minnesota, Nancy Mace of South Carolina and Beth Van Duyne of Texas. The candidates all told their individual stories and tried to dispel the notion that Democrats had a lock on the women’s vote.
After playing the previous interview when Taylor promises to form a “conservative squad” and introducing the new candidates, host Ainsley Earhardt congratulated Taylor on keeping her word.
“Congratulations, you actually did this,” Earhardt says.
“I’m just honored that they want to join in this fight – and that’s exactly what it is. We are losing the younger generation in this country, and I’m so grateful that they are willing to join up and help with this cause.”
