Ilhan Omar just received career-ending news that she didn’t want to hear
Rep. Ilhan Omar has made a name for herself in Congress as an anti-Semite and a radical socialist.
And now she is paying the price for her racist comments.
Ilhan Omar just received bad news that could be the end of her political career.
When Omar made her first round of anti-Semitic comments, Democrats barely batted an eye.
Many rushed to her defense claiming she was actually the victim.
Even after she doubled down on her comments, Nancy Pelosi and Democrats in Congress failed to formally denounce her.
But now she may be facing a primary challenge for her next election.
The Hill reports:
Some Minnesota Democrats, aghast at controversial comments made by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D), are taking initial steps to recruit a candidate to run against her in next year’s primary election, seeking to buck history in one of the nation’s most progressive legislative districts.
Several party leaders said they have had discussions about finding a candidate to take on Omar, just two months into her first term in Congress.
But even those who were deeply offended by Omar’s comments about Israel concede they have not yet found anyone to challenge her.
“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. There’s definitely talk about people wanting someone to run against her,” said state Sen. Ron Latz (D), who represents a portion of Omar’s district.
Ilhan Omar has done a great deal of damage to her reputation.
Not only that, she has become a major liability for the Democrats.
Minnesota Democrats are worried that Omar has become so toxic that she’ll hand the next election to Trump.
And Omar’s name on the ballot will undoubtedly drag other Democrat candidates down on Election Day.
If Omar continues to engage in anti-Semitism, she could face a primary challenger and risk losing her job in Congress.
