Ilhan Omar tops $1 Million in 3rd quarter


This week Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn) campaign reported raising $1.1 million in the last three months for her 2020 re-election campaign.

With the average donation being $14.55, over 55,000 people have donated to the campaign this quarter, according to what her team says.  Omar has raised almost double from last quarter’s $617,000 and the majority of her contributions were made online.  The campaign says 99.8% of donations made were under $200.

“For too long, Washington has catered to lobbyists and special interests, rather than the American people,”  – ILAHN OMAR.

It doesn’t look like she’s going to have tough competition for her re-election in 2020.  Omar’s district in Minnesota is very Democratic and there has been no real primary challenger. Hillary Clinton won District 5 in Minnesota by more than half.
