GOP Challenger Takes Aim at Omar’s Stance

GOP Challenger Takes Aim At Omar's Stance

( – Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has built herself quite a reputation for her part in the so-called “Squad,” led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Even in that hard-left group, she stands out for her often-extreme views. Now, though, her famous mouth might have dropped her in over her head.

Omar has been a vocal supporter of the controversial campaign to defund police departments across the country – and, while this idea is popular on the far left (and with criminals, of course) it’s electoral kryptonite for ordinary, law-abiding Americans. Omar says her plans won’t stop investigations into crimes, but is anyone convinced?

Now Lacy Johnson, the Republican-backed candidate who’ll be contesting Omar’s seat on June 23, thinks he can leverage Omar’s anti-cop rhetoric to secure a win despite her large majority. “I think it’s just a bad idea all the way around,” Johnson told Fox News, and 80% of the American public agrees with him.
