FEC records show AOC has barely any donors from her own district


Investigative reported Andrew Kerr provided a report on the Daily Caller that showed FEC records of donations received by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The results suggest that barely anyone in her district is donating to her.

Kerr's report states that the FEC requires political campaigns to share the name and address of donors giving $200 or more to their campaign during the time of an election, and that "big-dollar" donations reported to the FEC are called "itemized contributions."

The amount that Ocasio-Cortez received from reported donors appeared to be only $1,525.50, which came from people in her own district. This, according to Kerr's report, "represents less than 1% of her campaign’s itemized contributions reported to the FEC in the first half of 2019."

When doing the math among 88 congress first-timers, "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."

This is quite a difference in donations and suggests a few speculative reasons. Are AOC's constituents unhappy with her?

Kerr's report went further as to compare the rest of 'the squad's' donations to provide a comparison.

He reported that "Tlaib reported receiving $470,430.11 in itemized contributions in the first half of 2019, but less than 2% came from individuals living within her district.

And while Omar reported $717,831.22 in itemized contributions to her reelection campaign so far in 2019, just over 4% came from her constituents.

A fourth squad member, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, far outperformed the others. The Massachusetts Democrat received more than 30% of her $248,280.78 itemized contributions from her constituents."

Ocasio-Cortez did not respond to their questions for comment.
