Trump-backed Republican congressional candidate Karoline Leavitt is on track to dethrone Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as the youngest woman ever elected to the House of Representatives, according to the latest polls.
Leavitt previously worked in Trump’s White House communications office and for Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY).
The 25-year-old is running against Democrat incumbent Christopher Pappas in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District.
The latest polling shows Leavitt at 51 percent and Pappas at 45 percent.
There is a 3.5 percent margin of error.
If she wins, Leavitt will replace AOC, 33, as the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.
AOC was first elected when she was 29.
Due to Democrat policies, the American Dream has never been more unattainable for young people!
On Tuesday, we have an opportunity to change that! I joined @FoxBusiness to discuss: pic.twitter.com/RpxZR8We0l

“I am running to take back the majority from the Democrats because their policies are having a detrimental impact on my generation of Americans.
“Everywhere you look, conservatives, myself included, are being censored and silenced, and our freedoms to speak freely, think independently, bear arms, go to church and operate our own businesses are being infringed by radical Democrats.
“They’re telling us that if we don’t support policies like the Green New Deal, the world will end in 10 years.
“And young people are waking up to that.
“I talk to them every single day.
“And it’s because the radical economic agenda of the Democratic Party that’s been pushed over the past two years is really costing young folks.
“As many of you know, my youth is one of the many reasons that I felt compelled to run for Congress in the first place.
“Because it’s my generation of Americans — your children, your grandchildren — who are not being served well by the current state of our education system, our media, and our entire culture.”
New Hampshire cannot withstand THIS winter, never mind 2 more years, of the Biden/Democrat Energy Agenda.
We need to unleash our domestic energy production ASAP. I’m the only candidate in #NH01 who supports that. This morning I joined @MorningsMaria on @FoxBusiness to discuss: pic.twitter.com/k6Ohw9U5H5
