Looks like DC native Gina Jones’ campaign cash
is only slightly more Texan than the candidate herself, with more than 77% of
Jones’ Q2 donations coming from outside Texas.
Jones’ lack of support from folks in the Lone Star State shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. After all, Jones is a Washington, DC resident, owning a condo in the city’s luxurious Southwest Waterfront neighborhood, and hadn’t lived in Texas for more than a decade before deciding to run for office.
NRCC Comment: “Gina Jones’ popularity with out-of-state donors reflects the fact that she is a carpetbagger from Washington, DC.” – NRCC Spokesman Bob Salera
77.26% of Gina Jones’ itemized individual donations in the 2nd Quarter of 2019 came from donors outside of Texas. (Gina Ortiz Jones for Congress 2019 July quarterly report)
