RACHEL CAMPOS-DUFFY (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): One of the things he says -- Mayor Pete [Buttigieg] said, they're hypocrites, evangelicals and Catholics are hypocrites in voting for President Trump because he doesn't care about prisoners and immigrants and the poor. And I would say false on all claims. The poor? The poor don't want handouts from the government. They want financial independence. And I think that this economy has actually delivered on that. Two, prisoners, who delivered on criminal justice reform? And three, immigration, very debatable for me to say that Democrats who want to do nothing to a system that is exploiting and leading to sexual abuse of children and women coming up to the border, not very Christian in my view.

...

CAMPOS-DUFFY: I think he is very mild-mannered. I think if you lift up the hood on Mayor Pete, you'll see [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez]. He's radical, his dad is a radical -- was, he recently died -- Marxist professor. I think he puts a mild face just like Obama on some pretty radical policies.
