Virtually No One In AOC’s District Has Donated To Her Re-Election Campaign

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the top fundraising freshman lawmaker but has almost zero known donors from her own district.

Ouch! Only 10 people who live within Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional district have been recorded making donations to her reelection campaign in 2019, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of available FEC filings.

A new analysis of those who have given political contributions to socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) reelection campaign has reportedly found that only 10 contributors live inside her district.

“The FEC only requires that political campaigns disclose the names and addresses of individuals who contribute over $200 to their campaigns during an election,” The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Andrew Kerr reported. “The $1,525.50 Ocasio-Cortez received from her New York constituents represents less than 1% of her campaign’s itemized contributions reported to the FEC in the first half of 2019.”

While Ocasio-Cortez has outraised all other freshman representatives, the DCNF found that she falls significantly short of the average amount of money that freshman representatives have raised within their own districts.

“The average freshman representative’s reelection campaign received $107,141.29 in itemized contributions from their constituents in the first half of 2019, FEC filings the DCNF analyzed show,” Kerr writes. “Ocasio-Cortez’s reported in-district fundraising haul of $1,525.50 was just 1.4% of that average.”  More

That’s because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has done zero to help her own district. She joined the witch-hunt and has shown remarkable ignorance almost every time she opens her mouth.

I don’t care which party someone is in it should be illegal for a candidate for office to take donations from people outside the district they want to represent. It is a clear conflict of interest.
