Cummings Takes Aim at AOC’s “Socialist Dystopia”

BRONX, NY… The campaign of former NYPD officer and Bronx high school civics teacher John Cummings announced today that John has raised $850,000 in just 26 days. The campaign’s most recent FEC filing, for the period closing June 30th, will also reveal that John has raised $1.7 million during the 2nd quarter of 2020 and $3.6 million in total.

Cummings, a former NYPD Officer, also made the following comments today in response to New York City’s crime rate spiraling out of control:

“No one in the 14th Congressional District wants fewer cops,” said Cummings. “If anyone wasn’t sure about that before, they are now. While Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez is making clear that defund the police means defund the police, our people are being shot and killed at a rate unlike anything we’ve ever seen. If anyone was wondering what kind of socialist dystopia Rep. Ocasio-Cortez was going going to usher in – just look around.”
