‘Squad’ member Ilhan Omar narrowly survives primary challenge from pro-police centrist candidate

I hope her head injury heals soon.

FOX: Incumbent “Squad” Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., has narrowly defeated her primary challenger, Don Samuels, in the race for the Democratic nomination to represent Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District on Tuesday, according to The Associated Press.

Samuels, a pro-police candidate and former Minneapolis City Council member, offered a more centrist policy approach and received key endorsements from leaders across the state, including from Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey.

Omar, a native of Somalia who was first elected to Congress in 2018, has had a political career marred in controversy.

As part of the infamous House “Squad,” Omar, a former member of the Minnesota state House of Representatives, supported far left policies and has made questionable remarks throughout her short tenure in Congress about Israel. more

    Miles of “centrist” people. Grading on the Bolshevik curve.

    “Decent” people don’t let their cancer afflict the rest of us.

  5. Should the PIG be elected, it would be
    the responsibility of the next congress
    to refuse to seat her.
