Melton-Meaux trailed significantly with more than 90% of the vote counted, leading him to concede.Ilhan Omar fights for political survival and QAnon believer hopes to join the HouseOmar tweeted Tuesday night: "In Minnesota, we know that organized people will always beat organized money. Tonight, our movement didn’t just win. We earned a mandate for change. Despite outside efforts to defeat us, we once again broke turnout records.
"It has been the honor of my life to represent you in Congress and I look forward to continuing to serve the people of the 5th District in the years to come," she continued.Minnesota's 5th Congressional District is strongly Democratic, and Omar will likely go on to victory in November.
Omar was born in Somalia and came with her family to America as a refugee in the early 1990s. She and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., were the first Muslim women ever elected to Congress.Omar and Tlaib, along with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., came to be known collectively as"the Squad" – first-term congresswomen, all women of color, who established themselves as perhaps the four most progressive members in the House.

Senate likely to confirm Barrett to U.S. Supreme Court, cementing conservative majority
The Republican-controlled U.S. Senate is expected on Monday to confirm President Donald Trump's nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, as the next justice to the Supreme Court, a move that will tilt the country's highest court further to the right for years to come.
🤢🤢🤢🤮🤮🤮🤮 Radical Ilhan Omar is a threat to law and order. She has repeatedly called to defund the MN police; even to the point of calling these brave men and women who protect our communities every single day and night a “cancer.” Enjoy 'contentious' my ass. She was always way ahead in the polls. The media created this l bullshit narrative because they wanted drama.
Hey jlawrence keep watching... They get what they vote for. Both keithellison and Ilhan are Muslim and so with this deceptive shift and support from arrogant narcissist Dayton, that group tightened it's grip on Minneapolis with help of system of Voterquotas excluding normal Minnesotans from the nomination process. This infects nation.
This woman she’s war maker not peace maker why people keep voting for ?! You got that wrong. She ran for her state legislative seat and got MinnesotaDFL endorsement. Crazy keithellison ran for his CD5 seat. Then, after LoriSwansonMN lost endorsement, Keith on the last day of filing switched to DemocraticAGs and with help of govmarkdayton ilhan
That's why I've WalkAwayFromDemocrats after voting for them for 30 years. 2016 was the first time I voted GOP because of Trump. The Democratic Party is no longer the party of the Kennedy. It's being hijacked by far left fanatics and Communist sympathizers. Hi let benefit together The mainstream media trying so hard to convince us that there really was a blue wave in 2018. But the democrats lost ground in the Senate LOL Even JakeTapper was like 'There was no blue wave.' Then somebody whispered in his ear 'We're pretending there was.'

Vote! Vote blue! Let's see what the little terrorist does up against the Republican Blows my mind. Like why? Congrats to you! Citizens vited her in and GOP is jealous. ONE district... one. They do NOT speak for all of MN. rocksandcows don’t support mpls district 5!!! How’s this even possible Can we remove Minnesota from the US? Clearly their residents are all insane to re-elect Omar.
LOL. RW money gets to lose twice in one cycle. She’s doesn’t belongs in the United States, She’s a terrorist and her mission is to divide America. That is unfortunate. She is a known supporter for the Muslim Brotherhood Group which promotes radical Islam. The group is considered terrier group by many nations. Trump’s administration is trying to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a “Foreign Terrorist Organization”.

Is Minnesota still part of the United States 🇺🇸? What’s wrong with them 😳😳😳😳😳 Send her to CCP China 🤮 Too bad. You buried the lede, buckaroos. Rep. Omar FLATTENED her nearest competitor even though he nearly outspent her. Just as I had hoped. The DNC establishment will not be happy about this, but the part of the Democratic leadership that has turned into machinery, must be dismantled. That can only be done by a younger generation that has yet to be corrupted.
That’s what happens when you import voters who speak 50 words of English and value the Koran over the Constitution Good luck Minnesota, this woman will definitely destroy it again! is Minnesota ISIS now? Every year whites are killed by blacks，Why didn't you kneel for the white man? The lives of criminals are more important than goodmen police, Democrats are crazy
What will she represent? A burned up and worthless city? AIPAC tried hard to defeat her by funding a apologist. IlhanMN prevailed. America is coming to an end! Demoncrats cheat again, as always. Yay. Keep her and the rest of The Squad around. They're a gift to Republicans. Congratulations
Ilhan Omar Faces Well-Funded Rival in Democratic Primary in MinnesotaRep. Ilhan Omar, a prominent member of the progressive “squad” in Congress, faces a primary challenge from attorney Antone Melton-Meaux, a well-funded rival who has focused on her outsize national profile and controversial statements. isnt the problem there that obama filled that district with terrorists so they are the majority now? The question remains; are the people of MN driven by common sense or the flavor of the day in ideologies? “We don’t need a celebrity, we need someone who is going to serve.” Biden2020 💙🇺🇸
Rep. Ilhan Omar faces tough primary challenge in Minnesota 5th Congressional District raceRep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is set to defend her seat in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District on Tuesday, in one of the most expensive primary campaigns in the state. Antone Melton-Meaux, a Black lawyer and mediator, has emerged as Omar's most serious challenger. In an interview with ABC News Another sellout....The coterie of idiots who are used by racists and apartheid Israel to muzzle criticism of the crimes and war crimes against Palestinians... Hope she loses. She is embarrassing to the people of the state of Minnesota I support Ilhan Omar. She is very good, very effective.
Rep. Ilhan Omar faces tough primary challenge in Minnesota 5th Congressional District raceRep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is set to defend her seat in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District on Tuesday. Antone Melton-Meaux has emerged as her biggest challenger. Dr. Yan Limeng spoke for the first time: The new crown virus is a product of the Chinese Communist People’s Liberation Army Virus Laboratory! If the stories (illegally immigrated by marrying her brother, paid $800K of campaign funds to new husband, etc.) are true then she probably shouldn't be reelected. She resembles .... Yassar Arafat
Rep. Ilhan Omar Wins Congressional PrimaryRep. Ilhan Omar has won her primary after facing several challengers — the most prominent being a first-time political candidate who said Omar is 'out of touch with the district.' Noooooo! Why does garbage always win? Scary just scary. Nice headline not
Ilhan Omar Won A Bitter Primary To Keep Her Seat In CongressOmar beat a well-funded challenger in her Democrat-heavy Minnesota congressional district. Minnesota. Enough said. They should become part of Canada. I got more mail from her challenger than Ilhan. I wished I had recycled it, but I tossed it out quickly. She deserves to go back based on how much outsiders try to influence OUR district. I hope they spend more money on unwinnable races.
