From Republican Congressional candidate Evelyn Sanguinetti:
Sean Casten Out of Touch With 6th District Voters
Casten votes in lockstep with the most extreme members of his party
It comes as no surprise that Sean Casten shares almost identical voting records with the most extreme members of his party.
Sean Casten votes with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib, self-described Socialists, 95% and 97% of the time while trying to pass himself off as a centrist.
Casten also votes 99% of the time with Jan Schakowsky, Illinois’ most liberal member.
“Casten is no centrist. In his short time in Congress, Casten has already cozied up to the extremists in his party by sharing almost identical voting records,” said Clay Godfrey, Sanguinetti campaign spokesman.
“Voters in the 6th congressional district want someone to represent their values, not a lockstep liberal who kowtows to the most extreme wing of their party.”

· Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez And Rashida Tlaib Are Members Of The Democratic Socialists Of America. “And so, as the presumptive winner this fall, Tlaib would join Cortez, another presumptive winner from a heavily blue district, in representing DSA among national lawmakers.” (Gideon Resnick, “There Will Now Likely Be Two Democratic Socialists of America Members in Congress,” The Daily Beast, 8/9/18)
