AOC And Beto O’Rourke Raised A Ton Of Money For Texans While Ted Cruz Fled His Home State And Became Embroiled In A Saga

Whereas Ted Cruz was doing issues like going on Fox News making an attempt to defend his “good dad” trip to Cancun to spinelessly flee a once-in-a-generation storm that left hundreds of thousands of Texans with out energy, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was helping to raise money for those in need. “Workforce AOC is launching aid efforts for Texas beginning at the moment. Our first effort is a partnership w/ 5 Texas orgs getting on-the-ground aid to Texans ASAP. For those who’re ready, please donate right here – it’ll break up your contribution to all 5,” the New York congresswoman tweeted, including that 100 % of proceeds will go to the organizations. They’re: the Bridge Homeless Recovery Center, Ending Community Homeless Coalition (ECHO), Family Eldercare, Houston Food Bank, and Feeding Texas, all of that are “working across the clock to help houseless, hungry, and senior Texans in Travis and Dallas County, and past.”

AOC tweeted that at 5:42 p.m. EST. By 9:17, over 1,000,000 {dollars} had been raised.

“Holy smokes. Our Texas aid mobilization has already raised $325okay for meals, housing, elder care & direct aid straight to susceptible Texans. This could be just a little loopy… however can we increase $1M by midnight?” she wrote, quickly after adopted by, “Wow. We formally raised $1 million for Texas aid at 9:17 p.m. Thanks all a lot. I’m confused. All the time in awe of motion work. 100 % of this aid goes straight to Texan meals help, homelessness aid, elder care, and extra.” Ocasio-Cortez was thanked by former-Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, who helped arrange over 700,000 phone calls to senior citizens, for her fundraising efforts.

In the meantime, the very last thing Ted Cruz tweeted was himself on Fox Information.
