US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez raked in more money for her reelection campaign in the last fundraising quarter than any other House Democrat — including Speaker Nancy Pelosi, records show.
AOC, a Democratic socialist who reps parts of the Bronx and Queens, raised $1.42 million between July 1 through Sept. 30, followed by House impeachment czar and US Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who netted $1.26 million, and House Speaker Pelosi (D-Calif.), who received $1.145 million.
The lion’s share of AOC’s donations, $1.1 million, were under $200.
Political observers told The Post it is unprecedented for a rookie representative in office for less than a year to out-raise powerful veteran leaders such as Pelosi and Schiff.
All three pols are up for reelection in 2020, with Ocasio-Cortez preparing for a Democratic primary in June from, among others, Bronx Councilman Fernando Cabrera.
“This is very rare, unique — I can’t recall anyone raising this much money during the first year in office,” political consultant George Arzt said.
“AOC is a celebrity who gained attention from people across the country, and many on the left support her.”
I think AOC is the future of the Democratic party.
I did not agree with her about Bernie Sanders, but for the most part her vision of the future aligns well with mine.
I don’t believe it will happen as quickly as she wants, but with more politicians like her, it will happen.
