Meet Sue Googe, a Chinese immigrant, Donald Trump supporter (¯_(ツ)_/¯ ), and a woman who worked herself from an alleged life of hard labor and poverty to running as a republican candidate for Congress in North Carolina’s 4th district.
She also loves guns.

Googe’s name is literally Google without the “l”, which makes the fact that her campaign logo and Google’s logo are the exact same font seem like a complete coincidence. Googe previously stated that she isn’t violating any trademarks nor has Google contacted her.

Googe’s biography states that her childhood was one filled with “hard labor and daily struggle” being raised by two illiterate parents.
“Born into extreme poverty in communist China, Sue spent her childhood in the remote mountain region of Hainan Island, far from civilization and without running water or electricity.”

With the help of a family friend, Googe was able to attend boarding school at the age of 11. From there, she moved to work in mainland China when she was 20 and then moved to the U.S. six years later on a student visa. Eighteen years later, she’s running her own real-estate firm and hoping to become a new member of Congress.
Her grandfather, who served as a military leader against the Communist Party during the Chinese Civil War, was executed upon the Nationalist’s defeat along with many other males in her family while all her grandfather’s property was confiscated. Her family history taught her an important lesson which her campaign largely centers around:
“Sue learned firsthand that allowing a national government to consolidate power over the economy and the lives of the citizens will lead to violence, oppression, and poverty.”

Now she’s just living the American dream and staying “committed to fighting the corruption and cronyism in our political system, which is threatening the very foundation of our nation’s prosperity and opportunity for all.”
