Leora Levy, former President Donald Trump’s pick for Connecticut’s US Senate, spoke with Breitbart News about her campaign to “rid Connecticut from the Blumenthal Plate” just days before the state’s Senate Republican primary on Tuesday.
Breitbart News Saturday Host Matthew Boyle praised Levy for recently securing the endorsement of former President Donald Trump and asked the Senate to talk about the importance of the endorsement.
“Well, to be endorsed by President Trump is just a huge honor. I am incredibly proud and frankly amazed that he believes in me the way many Connecticut Republican voters do,” Levy said. “I am the strongest candidate to confront and defeat Dick Blumenthal. I am running to rid Connecticut from the blight of Blumenthal.”
“The issues driving this election in Connecticut are the same as they are driving it nationwide — high inflation, record gas prices, high crime, the invasion at our borders, and the very important issue here is parental rights. Parental rights are being abused here,” Levy continued. .
Levy also revealed that her family fled Cuba as a child to escape Castro’s “communism”.
“You know, I was born in Cuba. I came here when I was a child. We escaped from Castro’s communism. My father started from scratch. We lost everything in two but we came up with nothing.” “I understand how, how lucky I am,” said Levi. How lucky I am to have been able to grow up in the USA. And I thank God every morning that I am an American woman, and an American citizen who came here legally.”
Levy criticized her primary opponent, Themis Clarides, for being weak in the Second Amendment and for being endorsed by Planned Parenthood. She said that unlike her opponent, a “professional politician”, she is a “professional American”.
“Republican voters in Connecticut have a clear choice. She is a career politician with 22 years in office, and she does business the same way that Dick Blumenthal does. She votes the same way he does. She had a hand in writing the state’s highly restrictive gun law. Connecticut is punishable by law that respects citizens,” Levy said.
“I will always stand up and defend the rights of the Second Amendment,” Levy added. “I received the highest possible ratings for a candidate who was not in the position from the NRA and from the CCDL, a very strong group of firearms, professional and professional for the Second Amendment here in Connecticut.”
She is also very proud of the fact that she helped make Connecticut an abortion haven. It has a 100 percent rating and is approved by Planned Parenthood. Levi said she speaks at their gatherings. “I attend the rally for life. I have been certified by Susan B Anthony pro life America PAC. I am very proud to be a pro-life.”
Boyle mentioned the latest reconciliation bill introduced by Senate Democrats that is due for a vote this weekend and asked Levy to speak about stakes for that seat in the Connecticut Senate.
Levy’s nickname for the Inflation Reduction Act is the “Schumer Mansion Bill to Bring Back Inflation Better”.
“You’re going to raise taxes, from what I’ve read, for everyone whose income is over $200,000. That goes against Biden’s promise, that he won’t raise taxes on anyone who earns $400,000 or less, it’s adding $100 billion to our unreasonable deficit, the debt we leave to our children.” and our grandchildren,” Levy said.
“We have to change the direction of Connecticut. Connecticut is on the table. Blumenthal is underwater. Recent polls have shown that the majority of Connecticut voters – general election voters – don’t want him re-elected. He’s underwater and he’s going downhill because he’s so closely related to Biden,” she said again, calling him “Blumenthal’s pest”.
Levy continued to praise our capitalist economy and criticized Blumenthal for attending Communist Party events.
“There has never been a system like capitalism that has brought more prosperity to everyone and to our society. It’s the greatest system ever devised, and Blumenthal himself not only recognized the progressives, he actually went to the Communist Party, and he’s been going to it for years.”
“But nevertheless, I will promise all the electors that you will never see me at the events of the Communist Party, and it is certain that my whole life has been to fight the advance of communism in our country,” Levy vowed.
Speaking about the enthusiasm of her campaign, Levy said, “I can tell you that everywhere I go in the state and I’m all over the state. I can feel the momentum on the ground, it’s tangible, and people of all backgrounds, even Independents and Democrats.”
She also talked about the strides she made with Hispanic voters in her state.
“I make a lot of cuteness. I work — in the Hispanic community as a native I was born Hispanic speaking Spanish — in a landfill, there were Hispanics who said they were Democrats, but they want to vote for me in November,” Levy said.
“They are tired of the Democratic Party, because Hispanics and Republicans share values, faith, family, good education, no indoctrination, hard work, the chance to succeed and pass on a better life to your children and make sure your children have that opportunity.”
“This is what will bring Hispanic voters into the Republican Party in November, and I am the nominee to lead this effort, and they will come and vote for all of our candidates on the ballot this year,” Levy said.
