Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims to be fighting for the people of New York against rich and powerful interests, but the only problem with her credo is it seems nobody in her own district is funding her campaign. In fact, there are more than twice as many people running for president as there are people from the Bronx and Queens who have reported to have given money to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez. That's right, a new report shows that just 10 individuals from her own district have given the Democratic Socialist any sort of financial donation for her 2020 election effort.

Andrew Kerr of the Daily Caller News Foundation dug through Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings to see who exactly monetarily supports the freshman congresswoman: 

Ocasio-Cortez’s reelection campaign has reported receiving contributions from just 10 individuals living within her district in the first half of 2019, according to its Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings.

Accordingly, "The $1,525.50 Ocasio-Cortez received from her New York constituents represents less than 1% of her campaign’s itemized contributions reported to the FEC in the first half of 2019." 

Perhaps AOC is spending too much time with Hollywood elite to curry any favor with her home district. As pointed out the Washington Free Beacon's Brent Scher, she recently dined at an expensive restaurant with the likes of Seth Rogen, Chrissy Teigen, John Legend and more celebrities.
