Marjorie Taylor Greene sees $3.2M fundraising windfall despite being sidelined from House committees

AOC netted just over $726,000 in her first three months in Congress

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. 

Greene thanked her supporters and said their donations are a sign that people are standing up to the "political ruling class."

"I am one of the people and the people are with me, and I will always be with them," Greene tweeted. "WE are just getting started! In the words of my favorite President Trump, 'the best is yet to come.'"

Greene has courted controversy since entering Congress for her past social media posts on conspiracy theories, including QAnon, and liking posts that promoted violence against Democrats. Not wanting to empower her in Congress, the House took the unusual step of voting to remove Greene from her committee assignments because of her past social media activities. 

But a defiant Greene was able to capitalize on being sidelined and launched a grassroots social media fundraising campaign urging supporters to fight back against attempts to "silence" her. 

Greene represents a deep-red district in Georgia's 14th Congressional District, so her biggest challenge to re-election in 2022 is a GOP primary opponent.
