WASHINGTON--Our Revolution on Friday affirmed their continued support of Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar in the wake of her comments on the role of money in politics.
"We are proud to have endorsed Rep. Ilhan Omar," said Dr. James Zogby, Our Revolution Board Member and President of the Arab American Institute. "As the first Somali American and one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress, she is precisely the voice we need speaking truth to power. Rep. Omar is a progressive champion who will continue to fight on behalf of working families. Our Revolution stands with her."
Our Revolution supports progressive champions at every level of government. By supporting candidates backed by people, not corporations, we are aiming to transform American politics to make our political and economic systems responsive to the needs of working families.
