Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene brought in a fundraising windfall during her first three months in office despite being blackballed in the House by Democrats and even some high-profile Republicans.
The Georgia GOP freshman raised more than $3.2 million during the first quarter of 2021, buoyed by grassroots donations from all 50 states, her campaign announced Wednesday. The average donation was $32.
Raising $3.2 million in three months is a huge sum for any politician, especially a freshman.
In comparison, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, D-N.Y., netted just over $726,000 in her first three months in Congress in 2019. That means Greene raised four times the amount of the most high-profile Democratic freshman in their comparable first quarter in office.
“I am humbled, overjoyed, and so excited to announce what happened over the past few months as I have been the most attacked freshman member of Congress in history,” Greene tweeted Wednesday in celebrating her fundraising feat.
