TEXAS — She’s been called the Republican AOC, the right wing version of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  She and other female congressional candidates this past year were referred to as the “Conservative Squad”.

Now she’s Congresswoman-Elect Beth Van Duyne, former Mayor of Irving Texas. Maybe you’ve seen her on Fox News.

She has yet to be sworn in but is already making national political waves.

She's a staunch defender of President Donald Trump who appointed her as a regional director of HUD.
