Democratic Socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York tore into Senator’s Joe Manchin and Bob Menendez during an appearance on Pod Save America.
Cortez was speaking about the efficacy in running a campaign with very little corporate money, referencing a friend who rivaled Joe Manchin in his re-election bid.
“She ran on no money. Like, not only did she run on no corporate money, but she had nothing in two years for a United States Senate race. She raised $179,000 total and, you know, like, when you’re figuring stuff out in campaigns, like, she really had probably less than 100k to run to actually run that race. She was out there knocking doors herself — no money. Joe Manchin dropped two million dollars against her and she still got thirty percent of the vote,” Cortez said.
