New Yorker AOC continues to show up Ted Cruz -- has now raised $4 million for Texas
Screengrab.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) suffered a politically devastating week after fleeing Texas during an emergency to vacation in Cancun.

His leadership gap was filled by Democrats such as former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-TX) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

O'Rourke organized his supporters to make phone calls to check on the welfare of senior citizens in Texas.

Ocasio-Cortez used her massive social media follow to raise money for Texas nonprofits responding to the crisis. On Saturday, she announced that over $4 million had been raised.

Each has been cheering on the efforts of the other.
