AOC raises nearly $5 million in Texas relief efforts

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) announced Sunday night that her fundraising efforts for a Texas relief fund ’just hit $5 million.’ Texans are facing a power grid failure and lack of clean water caused by extremely cold weather. The New York Democrat established her fundraiser on February 18, and on Saturday, she visited the state and distributed food at the Houston Food Bank.

Regardless of sides, I think we can agree that this is a good thing. Can we at least unite over the suffering in Texas and work together to help them? At least bury the hatchet for a little bit.

I'm no fan of AOC's proposed legislation or her policies, but this is an incredible act of kindness. Really raises a new standard for what congressman and congresswomen can and should be doing for the American people.

I'm loving the temporary unity. It's a shame it's exposeing those who can't think past tribal lines. Or maybe that is a good thing to know who to have productive discourse with. Either way, thanks AOC, as much as I dislike you, I appreciate the humanity you displayed

OK, enjoy the Kum Bah Ya moment but don’t forget AOC is a populist trying her damnedest to turn Texas blue.

Most of this money will stay with ACTBLUE and get funneled into democratic campaigns and boost the coffers of democratic candidates. This is a great PR move as the Democrats have been trying to turn Texas blue for decades. With this show stunt and all the zombies from NY and CA. moving here it might just work.

What did Texas congress people do for NY during hurricane sandy? Tried to block federal aid.

You know what AOC has been turbing around. Dont care for alot of her policies but one thing I can tell is she is a go getter and likes to get things done. Round of applause for you.

Beto did massive fundraising as well. Let's make it perfectly clear which party cares about people and which runs off to Mexico.
