Pro-Trump Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene brought in an eye-popping $3.2 million in the first three months of the year. Greene’s campaign said in a press release the money was raised from more than 100,000 individual contributions in all 50 states and that the average donation was $32.
Rep. Greene thanked contributors on Twitter for their support.
“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 said in a Twitter thread.

Over 100,000 donors poured in over $3,200,000 to support me, averaging $30 per donation.
You know why?

The Hill reports:
“Over 100,000 donors poured in over $3,200,000 to support me, averaging $32 per donation. You know why? I stood my ground and never wavered in my belief in America First policies and putting People Over Politicians! And I will NEVER backdown! As a matter of fact, I’m just getting started,” Greene said in a statement.
Greene focused many of her fundraising solicitations during her nascent term on the controversies, casting herself as a fighter against the Washington establishment in the mold of former President Trump.
“For too long, the political ruling class that looks down on the rest of us, have been selling out America to the world, by whipping the backs of the hardworking American worker and taxpayer. But they fear one thing. The political ruling class fears the people because it’s the people that can take away what they love most. Power. Because it’s power that brings them everything else,” Greene said in her statement touting her haul.
“I am one of the people and the people are with me, and I will always be with them.”
The massive haul is especially impressive for a freshman congresswoman in a non-election year. To put it in perspective, progressive Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez only brought in $728,000 in the same amount of time after being elected to Congres in 2019.
