CNBC anchor Caruso-Cabrera to challenge Ocasio-Cortez in primary

“I am the daughter and granddaughter of working class Italian and Cuban immigrants,” Caruso-Cabrera said in a statement. “I am so lucky to have had such a wonderful career and I want everybody to have the opportunity that I’ve had. That’s why I’m running.”  

Caruso-Cabrera has been with CNBC for more than two decades. The network said Tuesday she will no longer appear as a contributor on the network. 
Ocasio-Cortez, 30, shocked the political world in 2018 in upsetting 10-term incumbent Joseph Crowley in a Democratic primary for New York's 14th District, which is located in the Bronx and Queens.
Caruso-Cabrera is the author of the 2010 book, "You Know I'm Right: More Prosperity, Less Government." The book calls for "fiscal conservatism, limited government and personal responsibility."
