TUXEDO, NY – While the 2020 primary election results are still being counted, the initial outcome indicates that extreme left challengers in the vein of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are winning over moderate Democrats in Congressional races, showing that the Democrat Party is moving even further to the left in its embrace of socialism. The Hudson Valley has been no exception, with far-left Democratic primary challengers Mondaire Jones and Jamaal Bowman appearing to hold victories in seats previously held by moderate incumbents Nita Lowey (NY-17) and Eliot Engel (NY-16). Even Sean Maloney (NY-18), an incumbent Democrat running for his 5th term, has abandoned the moderate positions he once campaigned on and now identifies as a “progressive,” as evident in his cosponsoring the Green New Deal and vocally supporting the Justice in Policing Act.
Chele Farley, the Republican and Conservative candidate challenging Maloney in NY-18, has distinguished herself from her opponent by advocating for pro-growth economic policies and supporting law enforcement.
As the country rebounds from the shutdown in response to COVID-19, Farley views economic freedom as more important than ever. “Over 30 million Americans are currently jobless and many are depending on charities and government assistance to feed their families. We need to restore every American’s ability to provide for their own family, which is why my priority is to promote policies that will create jobs and help our economy recover quickly,” says Chele Farley.
Maloney just yesterday was quoted in City & State New York aligning himself with progressive Democrats, many of whom have pushed for defunding the police, rejecting any form of bail and adopting extreme, tax-increasing environmental protections. “…I would reject the moderate label. I would call myself a progressive…,” Maloney said.
Farley’s campaign has continuously called out Maloney’s extreme partisanship, which the businesswoman says is a detriment to his ability to negotiate on the federal level for his constituents. “How do you expect to go to Washington and ask for anything from the administration when you vote with Nancy Pelosi 100% of the time and have been leading the bandwagon on impeachment?” Farley questions.
Farley, a Stanford-educated engineer with decades of experience in international finance, is running for one of the NRCC’s top pick-up seats, a district that President Trump won in 2016, but is currently represented by a Democrat. New York’s 18th could prove critical to Republicans taking back the House, which would require a total of 17 Republicans flipping House seats across the country.
