Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spent the weekend in Texas raising money for relief efforts in the state. The New York Congresswoman, who has no connection to the Lone Star State, commented:

“When disaster strikes, this is not just an issue for Texans; this is an issue for our entire country. And our whole country needs to come and rally together behind the needs of Texans all across this state. That’s the New York spirit, that’s the Texas spirit, and that’s the American spirit.”

AOC visited the Houston Food Bank over the weekend. It’s among 12 organizations that will receive the money she helped bring in. The 31-year-old is among many prominent Democrats raising money to help those suffering. Watch the video above from KHOU-TV.
