Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) will face a outstanding challenger in 2024, as former Minneapolis City Council member Don Samuels, who ran towards her in 2022, introduced he’ll as soon as once more strive to unseat the outstanding progressive.
“Ilhan hasn’t helped herself,” Samuels mentioned throughout an interview on a neighborhood radio station. “She has made missteps, even after the last race. There are some folks who are coming [to support me] because of what I am, who I am, and what I will do. And some are coming because of what she’s done and what she’ll do.”
Omar narrowly defeated Samuels by about 2 share factors in the primary in 2022, although she went on to trounce her Republican opponent in the overall election in the deep blue district. Now Samuels hopes to shut that hole amid backlash towards Omar and different left-wing members of the “Squad” over their stance on the battle between Israel and Hamas.
