(Canton, MI) – Last week, Representative Haley Stevens (D-Mich.) proudly joined all four members of the so-called “Squad” for a unity-themed photo op on the steps of the Capitol. To further show her support, Stevens later retweeted Representative Ilhan Omar’s tweet and photo from the event.
Stevens’ latest public displays of unity with members of the Squad fit a growing pattern of support for their radical political agenda. For example, Stevens has voted in agreement with Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) nearly 100% of the time since they were elected. Taken collectively, it appears that Stevens is doing her best to audition to become the latest member of the Squad.
“When Haley Stevens poses for a ‘unity’ photo op with members of the Squad, Michigan voters deserve an explanation as to exactly what unifies them, especially as it relates to their socialist positions and radical statements. I am excited to offer voters in the 11thdistrict a stark contrast to their current Representative. For starters, I have a lot less in common with AOC and the rest of the squad, and certainly won’t be voting in agreement with them nearly 100% of the time – if at all.”
– Whittney Williams, Candidate for Michigan’s 11thCongressional District
