Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) pulled in $832,000 in the first 3 months of 2019, NBC News reports, citing a Federal Election Commission report.

Details: More than $400,000 of the total came from grassroots support — those who donated less than $200 — and much of the sum came from online donors, according to Politico. Omar's fundraising prowess places her with some of the top House Democrats in the first quarter. Per Politico, Rep. Josh Harder (D-Calif.) — another freshman — raised a grand total of $873,000.

Though the congresswoman won't face reelection until 2020, she already has about $600,000 on hand as of March 31, the FEC report indicates. Omar, who has been at the center of several controversies and been the recipient of death threats in her first few months in office, is the first Somali-American Muslim elected to Congress and the first female to wear a hijab on the House floor.

Facebook boycott organizers share details on their Zuckerberg meeting

Facebook is in the midst of the largest ad boycott in its history, with nearly 1,000 brands having stopped paid advertising in July because they feel Facebook hasn't done enough to remove hate speech from its namesake app and Instagram.

Axios Re:Cap spoke with the boycott's four main organizers, who met on Tuesday with CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other top Facebook executives, to learn why they organized the boycott, what they took from the meeting, and what comes next.

Civil rights leaders blasted Facebook's top executives shortly after speaking with them on Tuesday, saying that the tech giant's leaders "failed to meet the moment" and were "more interested in having a dialogue than producing outcomes."

Why it matters: The likely fallout from the meeting is that the growing boycott of Facebook's advertising platform, which has reached nearly 1000 companies in less than a month, will extend longer than previously anticipated, deepening Facebook's public relations nightmare.

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise’s PAC is inviting lobbyists to attend a four-day “Summer Meeting” at Disney World's Polynesian Village in Florida, all but daring donors to swallow their concern about coronavirus and contribute $10,000 to his leadership PAC.

Why it matters: Scalise appears to be the first House lawmakers to host an in-person destination fundraiser since the severity of pandemic became clear. The invite for the “Summer Meeting” for the Scalise Leadership Fund, obtained by Axios, makes no mention of COVID-19.
