Default Minnesota Dems consider primary challenge against Ilhan Omar

Looks like libs might be tired of the anti-Semite.

Minnesota Dems consider primary challenge against Ilhan Omar

Quote:
Local Democrats are seriously considering the prospect of supporting an unprecedented primary challenge to Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar in 2020, following a bipartisan condemnation of several of her remarks as anti-Semitic, according to officials and state representatives.

Activists and officials interviewed by The Hill said that although they have not yet recruited a viable alternative candidate to the 37-year-old Omar, frustrations are mounting.


“There’s definitely some buzz going around about it, but it’s more a buzz of is anyone talking about finding someone to run against her than it is anyone saying they’re going to run against her or contemplate it," state Rep. Ron Latz, a Democrat, told The Hill. "There’s definitely talk about people wanting someone to run against her."

Omar Jamal, a Somali community activist, told the Washington Post that he has been in touch with Jewish community leaders about Omar. He said he supported her campaign but called her recent comments, "wrong, period."

"This is up to Ilhan Omar," he said. "She has really spoken in a very dangerous way, and it’s going to be up to her to reach out to people and fix this."

I don't know about that, I can come up with some uses for a cinder block.

I'll believe Democrats will put up a primary challenger when I see it. They are too afraid of their identity politics meat grinder to even pass a resolution specifically condemning Omar's hateful remarks or to strip her of a single committee assignment. Nancy Pelosi patronized Omar as a foreigner who didn't understand her words treating her like a 5 year old not responsible for her remarks.

That's the left's problem. They have no viable candidates.
