“I’m running against Ilhan Omar,” Johnson said Saturday. “I’m humbled the GOP endorsed me by receiving 90% of the vote I will win the primary and look forward to defeating Ilhan in Nov. 2020.”
According to Johnson’s campaign donation site, she vos to “fight against radical-leftist Ilhan Omar.”
“Donations to our campaign go directly to educating the inner city voters in our district that are not represented by Ilhan Omar,” the site adds. “The media will not expose her, only we can show the people of our district the truth. Radical left-wing policies will continue to fail major cities across America.”
“After a turbulent first term in Congress, Omar faces an unexpectedly strong primary challenge from political newcomer Antone Melton-Meaux, an attorney and professional mediator who has promised a more collaborative style for a Minneapolis-based congressional seat that has been in DFL hands since 1963,” the Star Tribune reported Monday.
“The Daily Mail reported that Omar’s husband, Ahmed Hirsi, ‘discovered the truth about her torrid affair with her chief fundraiser [Tim Mynett] when he went to her Washington D.C. apartment last spring and found the lovers lounging around in pajamas,’” noted The Daily Wire in February. “Multiple sources told The Daily Mail that Hirsi left ‘angry and humiliated’ after learning about the affair.”
“He suspected she was cheating but she kept telling him he was paranoid,” a source told the British outlet. “He told her he wanted to move down to D.C. to be with her but she insisted he should stay in Minneapolis with the children. Eventually he surprised her down there and his worst fears were confirmed.”
