MINNEAPOLIS—Indivisible, a grassroots organization with thousands of local groups and more than a million members, endorsed Rep. Ilhan Omar for reelection to Congress today.
“Rep. Omar is a powerful and courageous voice for the most vulnerable Americans, bringing bold, progressive ideas to the halls of Congress,” Indivisible said in a series of tweets. “Next Tuesday, Rep. Omar faces a primary challenger who’s in part funded by wealthy conservative donors trying to oust her for standing her ground on progressive issues. She has always put her constituents ahead of wealthy donors and refused corporate money. In her first term, Rep. Omar has established herself as a key member of an emerging progressive voting bloc, often introducing or co-sponsoring ambitious progressive policies. And during the pandemic she’s been out front calling for mortgage, rent, and student debt cancellations.”
