With her relentless criticism of Donald Trump, Rep. Maxine Waters has not only energized the left but also the opposition, according to the most recent fundraising figures.

In her heavily Democratic Los Angeles district, Republican Omar Navarro, Waters’ longshot rival, raised more than $450,000 in the third quarter, demonstrating his opponent’s national status as a strong Trump foe.

Many of the contributions to Navarro’s campaign came from around the nation, with individuals from as far away as Florida and Rhode Island giving tiny sums, illuminating that dynamic.

In an interview, Navarro stated that “a lot of people all over the country are dissatisfied with the rhetoric Maxine Waters is using.” “They’re becoming upset. They object to her efforts to remove the president from office.

On the other hand, Waters’ district is the most reliably Democratic seat on the map, with more registered Democrats than Republicans.

In the June 2016 all-party primary, Waters garnered approximately 75% of the vote, with only 14% going to Navarro, which is not good news for the rival.

Navarro raised about the same amount as two vulnerable California Republican incumbents, Reps. Steve Knight and Dana Rohrabacher, whose districts are among a cluster of California seats that are seen by both parties as crucial to control of the House. To put Waters’ $193,000 haul in perspective, Navarro raised more than double that amount from July through September.

While Republican groups have poured money into the other California races, Navarro has received only $250 from a local group as party support. Although he stated that television advertising will be forthcoming, he has not yet published any.

A request for a response was not answered by a Waters campaign official.

Trump has responded to Waters’ frequent criticism of him and her call for supporters to demonstrate against White House representatives whenever they appear in public. The president frequently criticizes the California lawmaker, who he refers to as “Crazy Maxine,” in his speeches and tweets during the election campaign.

Republicans in California were rarely encouraged by the fundraising figures for Navarro because they were frequently outdone by Democratic opponents in competitive districts. Tens of millions of dollars in third-quarter donations were revealed by Democrats running for office in targeted races, breaking numerous single-quarter records.
