Ilhan Omar Wins Minnesota House Race Against Lacy Johnson

“Squad” member Ilhan Omar has easily defeated her Republican challenger Lacy Johnson in Minnesota’s 5th District.

Omar garnered more than double the vote of Johnson in a heavily Democrat district.

After winning, Omar tweeted:

Fun fact: our GOP opponent spent $10mil to get 4% more than my 2018 republican opponent who spent $25k.

Misplaced hate has separated so many Republicans from their precious dollars.

We, by contrast, spent less than $5mil and got more votes than any other MN CD candidates.

She also wrote “our sisterhood is resilient” and tweeted a photo of all 4 “squad” members.
