Trump Administration Official Michael Caputo endorses Karen Healy-Case for Erie County Sheriff

East Aurora, NY – Michael Caputo, former Trump Campaign and Trump Administration Official, endorsed Karen Healy-Case for Erie County Sheriff.

Karen Healy-Case is a strong law enforcement officer and a strong Republican. She is an unwavering fighter for our Second Amendment rights, tough on crime, and a proud Trump Republican. After working for President Donald Trump, I know Karen Healy-Case is exactly who we need as our next Republican Sheriff. I proudly endorse Karen Healy-Case for Sheriff and I am excited to vote for her on Primary Day.

The fact is that Johnny-come-lately Garcia is a flawed candidate who cannot win in November. He was a Democrat when Trump needed him in 2016, and instead, he voted in the Democrat Primary for President. His only choices were Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. Garcia changed from Democrat to Republican in September 2020 – is he an opportunist or just a RINO?

In Erie County, Democrats outnumber us 2 to 1 and I am calling on every last Republican to unite behind Karen Healy-Case for Sheriff. A vote for John Garcia is a vote to split the ballot in November with different candidates on the Republican and Conservatives lines – guaranteeing a defund the police Democrat in the Sheriff’s office.”

Michael Caputo has known President Donald Trump since the 1980s, attempted to recruit him to run for New York Governor in 2014, and aided his 2014 attempt to purchase the Buffalo Bills. Caputo worked for President Donald Trump as a key 2016 campaign advisor and was later appointed by President Trump to Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs in the Department of Health and Human Services to direct Covid communications during the pandemic.

Karen Healy-Case is a proud conservative Republican, a 22-year law enforcement veteran, a private-sector securities expert, and a candidate for Erie County Sheriff. She is endorsed by both the Republican and Conservative Parties.
