AOC raised a few million dollars for Texas relief after a freak winter storm caused a temporary energy crisis in the Lone Star State, and later visited the state to briefly help support food banks.In an email sent out by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for Congress, AOC blamed Republicans for the crisis in Texas, claiming that the “Republican-run government” decided to not prepare because they didn’t want to “cut into profits of their privatized energy system.”
In the email that she sent, AOC included three links to solicit donations for her campaign.
“The disaster in Texas is quite literally what happens when you don’t pass a Green New Deal,” the page that solicited donations stated. “The Green New Deal centers the creation of good, decent jobs, the public good, and environmental justice. Watch the video, and if you can, chip in to help us grow this movement and win.”
