Several Democrats Receiving Financial Backing From AOC

Several Democrats Receiving Financial Backing From AOC

(UnitedVoice.com) – In 2020, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) launched a political action committee to help boost progressive candidates running across the country in the general election. When the party lost big, some Democrats blamed the congresswoman’s rhetoric. But that hasn’t stopped some Leftists from taking her money anyway.

According to an April 20 report in The Post Millennial, AOC is bankrolling Rep. Kim Schrier (D-WA), who’s up for re-election. The congresswoman took a $5,000 donation from AOC’s PAC recently. In response, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) started a website to show exactly who’s taking this money. Up till now, six candidates have refused or returned AOC’s donations.

AOC is an incredibly polarizing figure in both the Democratic and Republican parties. That’s demonstrated by how many Dems rejected her money. How that’s going to play out in the party in the years to come remains to be seen. In the immediate future, candidates’ support of the congresswoman could cost them their seats — and they know it.
