Minnesota Democrats Reveal Plan to Deal With Ilhan Omar

Democrats in the Land of 10,000 Lakes who find themselves incensed at Rep. Ilhan Omar for her anti-Semitic comments have begun contemplating finding a primary candidate to dash her hopes of reelection. 

Per The Daily Caller:
 

Those who want Omar replaced are looking for someone to contest her nomination and have been meeting to discuss that objective, The Hill reported Thursday.

It’s typically difficult to replace an incumbent politician, even one as arguably polarizing as Omar, who in her first two months as a congresswoman has sparked contentious debates both as a country and within the party.

“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,” Democratic state Sen. Ron Latz, whose district overlaps Omar’s federal constituency, told The Hill. “There’s definitely talk about people wanting someone to run against her.”

Omar has provoked accusations of anti-Semitism against her with her chiding of Israel, suggesting at one point that it had “hypnotized the world” and prayed that Allah would “awaken” it. She divided the Democratic Party last week over a resolution that was first meant to condemn anti-Semitism but became a reprimand against virtually every form of discrimination.

Jews, in particular, are exasperated by Omar’s unfulfilled promises to listen and learn from her Jewish constituents.
