Ihan Omar and the “Squad” think they are untouchable in the Democrat Party as the leaders of the radical left-wing of the Party.
But Ilhan Omar was in shock when one Democrat leader stabbed her in the back.
And now this could finally be the beginning of the end for Ilhan Omar and the rest of the radical “Squad.”
Ilhan Omar’s political “baggage” goes well beyond being one of the most radical Leftist to ever sit in Congress.
From scandals and rumors ranging from Omar marrying her brother to funnelling over $1,000,000 in campaign funds into her husband’s company and the frequent anti-semetic comments.
But her past scandals and far Left-wing ideology may have finally caught up to Ilhan Omar.
Omar could be one of the few sitting members of the House of Representatives who loses their primary race this year.
Most of the time, the primary challenger attacks them from the Left.
But in Omar’s case, the challenge and pushback against her is coming from the “center” of the Democrat Party.
Omar’s primary challenger – Antone Melton-Meaux – is raking in the big bucks needed to unseat an incumbent.
And one donation for $1,000 came from Colorado’s Democrat Governor Jared Polis.
Washington Examiner reports:
Colorado Gov. Jared Polis made a significant donation to the campaign of Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s primary opponent.
According to campaign finance records, Polis, a Democrat, donated $1,000 to Antone Melton-Meaux, a Minneapolis attorney who is running as a Democrat in the primary race for Omar’s seat, on Monday.
Very rarely do other elected officials in the same party support primary challengers to sitting members of Congress.
But with all her baggage, Omar is a special case.
She was never held accountable for saying things like “some people” “did something” regarding 9/11 and her past anti-semetic remarks.
That may be changing as Omar’s well-funded primary challenger grows in support among prominent elected Democrat officials.
This could finally be the beginning of the end for Ilhan Omar and the rest of the radical “Squad.”
