Publication targeting conservatives and people of faith makes Lauf its 2nd 2020 election highlight
Late Monday afternoon, The Resurgent published an article by award-winning writer Gabriella Hoffman interviewing 14th congressional district Republican candidate Catalina Lauf. The screenshot of the tweet announcing the article is below:
Here are the questions asked in this interview:
- Introduce yourself to our readers.
- You are a young conservative running for Congress in a swing district. What first propelled you to run?
- Which movement figures inspire your philosophical thinking? Who greatly inspired you to get proactive in conservative/Republican politics? What makes you inclined to the Republican Party?
- What are your top issues on the campaign trail?
- What sets you apart from your Republican primary challengers?
- You recently tweeted that political opponents—including Democrats and Republicans—were trying to sabotage your ability to be on the Illinois ballot. Could you elaborate on this, why this occurred, and why you fought back?
- IL-14 is a swing district that used to be Republican. The Cook Political Report rates it as a R+5 District, and President Trump won it in 2016 49.3% to Clinton’s 45.3%. The current incumbent, Lauren Underwood, has signaled she doesn’t represent all of her constituents with her vote for impeachment and with her falling in line with House Speaker Pelosi. If you are chosen as the GOP nominee, how do you plan to defeat Rep. Underwood? What’s your strategy?
- Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) recently tweeted that a historic number of Republican women, well over 180, are running for Congress in 2020. There are currently 13 GOP women in the chamber, compared to Democrat women currently serving. Why is it important to see more GOP women elected, especially those who are principled conservatives like yourself?
- What issues are currently overlooked that you hope to draw more attention to if you’re elected to Congress?
- Anything else you’d like our readers to know about your race and candidacy?
