Ilhan Omar Could Be on the Way Out

A Democratic challenger to far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota has just picked up a huge endorsement as he attempts to unseat her during a primary later this summer.

Don Samuels, 75, former Minneapolis councilman, has won the backing of the United Steelworkers Union as he attempts to position himself as a more centrist choice in the race, the Washington Examiner reported. He has also won the backing of the International Union of Operating Engineers.

Samuels narrowly lost the 2022 primary to Omar, but his chances this time around are improving with the increased support from the unions and others.

“Our campaign is not just about winning an election. It’s about making a real difference in the
lives of working families,” Samuels said in a statement to the outlet. “I’m deeply honored to have the support of these unions and their members as we gather momentum for the Aug. 13 primary.”
