For a Democratic Socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sure seems to have a lot of wealthy supporters. Also, she’s running to represent a district in New York. What is she doing at a fundraising event in San Francisco?
The San Francisco Gate reports:
Ny Congressional Candidate Ocasio-Cortez In Sf For Fundraising Events
Fresh off the heels of a Democratic congressional primary win in New York, politician and organizer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will make be in San Francisco’s Mission District this evening for two fundraising events.
Ocasio-Cortez is first set to appear at 7 p.m. at The Assembly at 449 14th St. Available tickets for the event run between $500 and $2,700.
Next, Ocasio-Cortez will appear at an event hosted by the San Francisco Progressive Alliance, which starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Gray Area/Grand Theater at 2665 Mission St.
Ocasio-Cortez, who describes herself as a democratic socialist, has been touring the county after she recently beat 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley in the primary race for New York’s 14th Congressional District…
Although Ocasio-Cortez hails from New York, Shandi Singh, co-chair of the Democratic Socialists of America’s San Francisco chapter, said many people in the Bay Area are very interested in hearing what she has to say.
She’ll be very wealthy someday. Just like Bernie Sanders with his multiple houses.
