Couple of more strokes of genius like this and she will win the nomination
Somewhere between “turning water into wine” and “making lemonade out of lemons” is this stroke of brilliance by Catalina Lauf and her Catalina for Congress campaign.
When she launched her campaign back in late August, within a week, leftists/socialists set up various parody sites in an attempt to mock her campaign, and one of them used the moniker “Catalina Wine Mixer”.
The leftists/socialists even developed a caricature along the lines of the “Catalina Wine Mixer” image, complete with her MAGA cap showing how Lauf once worked in the Trump Administration for the Department of Commerce for 8 months.
It must be pointed out, no other Republican candidate generated this kind of fear among the socialist Democrats to go out of their way to try and stop her. The leftists saw something in Lauf that is a threat to Congresswoman Lauren Underwood’s reelection if Lauf is the Republican nominee.
It is similar to how some Republicans have displayed unrighteous fear at Lauf’s candidacy, and prompted many to pursue a bogus and now withdrawn petition objection complete with two bipartisan co-objectors, similar to how the Democrats are pursuing an unfounded impeachment against President Trump.
So earlier this week, it was noticed on Lauf’s Instagram account this:
This bears repeating from her Instagram post above.
Catalina for Congress took the “Catalina Wine Mixer” moniker the leftists/socialists tried to use against her as a pejorative and not only made it her own, but created merchandising for her campaign where all proceeds of sales goes to support injured Veterans who want the opportunity to stay active through a Marengo/district-based business.
This was too much to be a coincidence, so McHenry County Blog reached out to the Catalina for Congress campaign for confirmation, and their response:
“Yes this is a play on their [leftists/socialists] parody account and also supporters would bring up, having merchandise like this to us on a regular basis.
“We were able to kill two birds with one stone with this and have one of the best campaign shirts I’ve ever seen thanks to OscarMike over in Marengo.”Catalina for Congress campaign, 1/9/20
One must think the stone killed more than two birds, and for a cause of helping injured Veterans through the OscarMike Foundation, where 100% of the proceeds go.
And Underwood had to be elected to Congress to help Veterans through her work on the House Veterans Affairs Committee.
Additionally and this shows how far back this idea goes, McHenry County Blog has confirmed Catalina for Congress reserved internet addresses for the “Catalina Wine Mixer” reference, as captured by the registrations dated November 25, but actually reserved on November 22:
So during the campaign, maybe as soon as the congressional candidates’ debate at McHenry County College on January 22, when the Catalina for Congress volunteers are sporting their Catalina Wine Mixer t-shirts, you’ll know the proceeds to purchase the wine mixer t-shirt helped Veterans through Marengo-based OscarMike Apparel.
