AOC Raised $1 Million for Struggling Texans as Cruz Prioritized Post-Cancun PR Mess

While Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was dealing with an embarrassing public relations disaster of his own making — flying to Cancún, Mexico, with his family while his home state was reeling from blackouts and water shutdowns amid frigid temperatures — his political adversary Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) was spearheading an effort to raise funds for those in dire need.

Within hours, the Democratic congresswoman announced that donations had surpassed $1 million.
