Squad member Omar in primary spotlight as 5 states hold contests Tuesday

Squad member Omar in primary spotlight as 5 states hold contests Tuesday

Connecticut, Minnesota, Vermont and Wisconsin hold primaries on Tuesday, with a Georgia holding a Republican primary runoff in the state’s 14th Congressional District.

But the race grabbing the most national attention is in Minnesota, where Rep. Ilhan Omar - known from coast to coast as one of the four members of the group of progressive first-term congresswomen of color known as “The Squad” -- is facing a Democratic primary challenge from a candidate who’s vastly outraised the incumbent.

The fourth member of “The Squad” -- Rep. Ayanna Pressley who represents Massachusetts’ 7th congressional District – doesn’t face a Democratic primary challenge in the state’s Sept. 1 primary.

Two months ago some top House GOP leaders disavowed Greene, who has reportedly made racist Facebook videos and embraced QAnon movement conspiracy theories.

Even though it’s just a formality at this point, the state is holding both Democratic and Republican presidential primary contests, as well as down ballot contests.
