This came in from the Ocasio-Cortez Campaign.
Late wednesday evening, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for Congress reported raising more than $4.5 million from more than 221,000 contributions during the second quarter. Over 100,000 of those contributions came from new donors. The average donation was $20.57. The campaign ended the quarter with nearly $3 million in cash on hand.
“I’m immensely grateful to the working people who gave what they could during this incredibly difficult time to help us decisively defeat a Wall Street-backed opponent. Our grassroots movement is growing stronger every day, and with their help, we will one day create a political system that answers to working people, not corporate lobbyists,” said Ocasio-Cortez in a statement. “I’m also extraordinarily grateful to all those who contributed to our COVID-19 relief efforts. With their help, we’ve raised nearly $1 million to support one of the hardest-hit districts in the country.”
To date, the campaign has raised nearly $940,000 in direct relief for community groups and advocacy organizations serving NY-14 constituents on the frontline. This relief has funded PPE, food pantries, bail funds and financial support for undocumented families, service workers, the food insecure, and Amazon warehouse workers.
