Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez challenger Michelle Caruso-Cabrera has raised $1 million in her bid to topple the lefty superstar in the June 23 Democratic primary, her campaign said Wednesday.
Caruso-Cabrera, the former veteran CNBC anchor, will report having $800,00 in cash on hand — minus expenses paid — when she officially files her financial disclosures with the Federal Elections Commission.
The financial report covers the first quarter of 2020 — Jan. 1-March 31 — and the report is due April. 15.
“The outpouring of support has been amazing. Before Coronavirus people were stopping me on the street showing their excitement. And from the beginning the countless handwritten letters from near and far s from across the country have been so moving,” said Caruso-Cabrera said.
