Arguably the most radical members of the clique of Freshman House Democrats known as “The Squad” face strong primary challengers that threaten their political futures.

Per Fox News:

In Minnesota’s heavily Democratic 5th Congressional District – which covers much of the city of Minneapolis and was ground zero for the nationwide protests sparked by the death of George Floyd – freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar is facing multiple challengers on the Aug. 11 primary vote, including one challenger who has dramatically outraised her.

And in Michigan’s overwhelmingly Democratic 13th Congressional District, which includes parts of Detroit and the inner suburbs of Wayne County, the Aug. 4 primary is a rematch from two years ago, as first-term Rep. Rashida Tlaib is trying to fend off Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones.

The district was held for more than half a century by John Conyers Jr., a co-founder of the Congressional Black Caucus who died last year. When Conyers stepped down in 2018 amid accusations of sexual harassment, Jones briefly held the seat after narrowly edging Tlaib in a special election to fill the rest of Conyers’ term.

But Tlaib won a separate election for the new two-year term, starting in 2019. That election included six candidates. Jones, who is Black, now enjoys the support of the other four candidates from the 2018 election. Tlaib is Palestinian-American — and she made history alongside Omar in 2018 as the first two Muslim women elected to Congress (RELATED: Rashida Tlaib Headlines Anti-Semitic Conference).

Race is a prominent factor in Tlaib’s reelection since Michigan’s 13th congressional district is 56.3% black.

Although Omar has the backing of key Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), her challenger, Antone Melton-Meaux, had a second-quarter fundraising haul dwarfing Omar’s.

Relating to the “squad”..these four reprobates need to be ushered out of our country…they are all wanting socialism which is not a good idea for our country!!!!! Socialism is not the answer for our country…and it is ashame when countries fall under this type of government. These four gals should leave our country….and Cortez should go back to bar-tending…she is a follower of satan-worshipper, George Soros…who is controlled by demons!!! We need a good clean-up in our country…we need God-loving citizens and get this country back and running under President Trump and VP Pence…God ordained president Trump to be our president!!! May God Bless America and our wonderful president!

They are trying to destroy our nation from within. They are a threat to our liberty and freedom. Our nation has survived for two hundred and fifty years. We can not let it die now.
