        The opponent sounds pretty underwhelming.

        As she becomes more seasoned she will by definition become less radical, if that's what her constituents are worried about.

        Right now it just looks like AIPAC wants a scalp to keep everybody terrified of them. Handing them a big, public loss would be a Very Good Thing in its own right.

          She’s my rep. I don’t really like her. I like all the other squad members- but ilhan is my least fav. I’ll vote for her if she’s up of course

            Since Tlaib got away with that wishy-washy word salad about how her people, the Palestinians, suffered and gave away their land to give the Jews a safe haven after the Holocaust, I'm pretty sure Omar is gonna survive.

              I think her opponent kind of sucks...but I definitely smell fear in her campaign. She has sent me like 5 emails in the past 3 days and I have never signed up for her emails. She is also having her campaign text a lot lately which wouldnt annoy me except they are so disorganized and lazy that despite the fact that I have told them AT LEAST 4 TIMES they have the wrong name and gender (though they also text my correct name so they obviously dont do any actual research into the names they have) for my number which I have had since 2004 they never change it. It got to the point I sent an angry text back and they took me off their list.

              I think she is in trouble...and I think she is the cause of almost all of it. It is one thing to be unpolished, most people around here can ignore that. But when you get called out, then apologize, then the next day double down it will not go unnoticed. When you dont learn from your mistakes that will work against you as well. She is not ready for Prime Time and in truth unlike the rest of the Squad she really did seem to enjoy being in the spotlight more than she did being in Minnesota dealing with our issues.

              If I was betting I would put her as a slight favorite now because she still has a demographic advantage in the district but if she loses she has no one to blame but herself. I was willing to look past her biases because I think she wants what is best for the people but most people (especially Jews) arent going to just look past her not so thinly veiled comments forever. If she survives the primary she will win the general and then she needs to take a hard look in the mirror. I am all for her trolling the racists, but not at the expense of your constituents and not just to make your star shine brightly. She is not AOC, she is never going to be AOC.

                I wouldnt be so sure. There are a LOT of Jews in her district. St. Louis Park is part of her district and they are not supporting her now.

                  Welp, if she loses that's politics, Suzyn. \_(ツ)_/

                  I want at least as many hard Lefties in Congress as there are hard Righties to balance the Overton Window. As of now we're about 100 shy. So I'm rooting for her, but if she shanks it I won't lose any sleep over it.

                    Senate Republicans have been forced into a defensive crouch as they head into the final weeks of their campaign to protect their endangered majority.

                    The party isplowing some $100 million — nearly all of its Senate war chest — into reelecting eight senators in tough races. The few GOP candidates with a shot at picking off a Democratic seat have been left to fend for themselves, with no significant air cover from the national party for now.

                    The GOP is still confident it will win back Jeff Sessions’ old seat in Alabama that Democrat Doug Jones won in 2017 a special election — and they’re spending to do so. But that’s the only offensive target where Republicans are currently engaged: The party, for instance, has no outside money invested in Michigan between now and Election Day despite Trump carrying the state in 2016 and the GOP touting its candidate, veteran and businessman John James.

                    Republicans were always going to be on defense this year, with twice as many GOP seats as Democratic ones on the ballot. But as the political environment has shifted away from the party in recent months, and Democratic challengers have raised eye-popping sums, it has made expanding their opportunities all but impossible.

                      I think handy said it best- Omar is her own trouble and she’s caused most, if not all of it herself.

                        While that may be true, there is a much quicker rush to demonize her for it because she's not Playing Along.

                        Voters always say they want someone who won't just roll logs with the old boys. Then they get one and they believe everything those old boys say to get her out. Seems pretty obvious that much of the out of state effort to unseat her has to do with her threat to their power.

                          Could be how others view it. I don’t think AOC plays along either but I love her. I think the way she messages resonates with me much more

                            Hey I still prefer her...I am just saying she dug her own grave if she loses. I hope she doesn't cause her opponent is underwhelming.

                              Sorry that isn't true. She is getting ripped because she isn't doing her primary job...represent the 5th. She could get away with that elsewhere but that is a very active area (especially now with George Floyd) and she is seen by many as never being part of the discussion locally. They see her tweeting at Trump but never see her in their neighborhood talking about the issues. Like it or not that is a legit complaint. (And has bitten people before less divisive than her including GOPers) Progressives locally even take her to task for this stuff.

                              The haters hate her more because of who she is...but she isn't in trouble because she isnt moderate enough. If she was Walz wouldn't have endorsed her. You are just assuming as such because you like how Progressive she is.

                                This is a good analysis.

                                I tend to agree. She just doesn't seem cut out to be a politician. AOC is extremely bright and seems to understand the system she's working in (and more importantly, how to work it to her advantage and eventually break it). Omar probably could have spent more time in the MN Legislature.

                                There are times to throw bombs and times to sit down and work. People like Franken and AOC understood that. They seem to take more of the Pelosi approach than the Schumer approach. I can't believe Nancy hasn't politically knifed that idiot already.
