REPORT: Only Ten People From Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s District Have Donated To Her Campaign

The media has turned Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez into a national figure. Btu back in the New York district she actually represents, it’s a different story.

It looks as though people aren’t exactly lining up to donate money to her campaign.

The Daily Caller reports:

Ocasio-Cortez’s Known Donors From Her Own District Are Nearly Non-Existent, FEC Records Show

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has outraised all other freshmen representatives so far in 2019, but nearly all of her reported contributors to her reelection campaign live outside her congressional district, a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings found.

Ocasio-Cortez’s reelection campaign has reported receiving contributions from just 10 individuals living within her district in the first half of 2019, according to its Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings.

The FEC only requires that political campaigns disclose the names and addresses of individuals who contribute over $200 to their campaigns during an election. Campaigns report their big-dollar donors to the FEC in what’s called itemized contributions.

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.

The known monetary support Ocasio-Cortez’s reelection campaign has received from the people she represents is minuscule compared to the 88-member freshman class of the House of Representatives.

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. Ocasio-Cortez’s reported in-district fundraising haul of $1,525.50 was just 1.4% of that average.

When you look at her Twitter feed, is it any wonder why people in her district aren’t giving?

What does any of this have to do with representing her district?
