If AOC wins re-election, it will be from funding that is 99% outside her own district.
A new report from DailyCaller reveals the freshman rep’s extremely poor performance with attracting donors inside her own district with a total of only 10 putting in funds towards her 2020 re-election campaign.
Ocasio Cortez irked many locals by pushing away thousands of jobs that would have come from Amazon.
In addition, her popularity rating in her own district has been dismal.
- 42 percent are unfamiliar with AOC.
- 51 percent have an unfavorable view of AOC.
- 33 percent are ready to vote against AOC, and only 13 percent would vote for her.
Per DailyCaller, 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.
