From Politico’s Group chat:
Freshman representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), MAGA’s controversial fire brand, raised more than $ 3.2 million in the first three months of this year, according to a source close to with her campaign. That staggering figure comes from over 100,000 individual donors, with an average donation of $ 32. The source added that Greene was not self-funded this quarter.
That’s a staggering amount of money for a member of the House of Representatives, especially for a freshman who has a year left from her next election. As for the backdrop, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (DN.Y.), then a freshman, made $ 728,000 in the first quarter of 2019.
Greene seems to have actually benefited from all the controversy that cost her during her first few months in office. She has directly raised funds from the Democrat’s decision to exclude her from her committees for her violent rhetoric in the past and warn her supporters that Democrats are trying to expel her. from Congress. Greene is also still a fan favorite in Trumpworld: she met Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago last week and they poses for a video together.
“More than 100,000 individual contributions says it all. The People is with Marjorie Taylor Greene and her America First agenda. Apparently she is the heir to President Trump, ”said a source close to her campaign. “While politicians inside Beltway attack her every day, Americans are flocking to stand next to the infamous MTG as she fights teeth and nails on the floor using procedural tactics. to close Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats hostage to take over Congress. “
