MINNEAPOLIS—Today Rep. Ilhan Omar unveiled a set of new campaign videos, which will be used in a large-scale ad-buy for local television stations and for targeted digital ads.
In this new ad, Rep. Omar shares her vision for a better future and her advocacy for that vision.
“We have taken on corporations that prioritize profit over people. We have taken on a campaign finance system fueled by greed and corporate cash. We have taken on a justice system that doesn’t fully recognize our humanity. We have taken on a president who wants to send us back.” Rep. Omar says in the new ad. “And on August 11th, we take them on at the ballot box. Join us.”
